Being the most sensitive part of the human body, our eyes need proper care. It's become even more essential ever since screentime has increased for all of us. Be it because of work or for personal reasons, we just can't avoid the screen.
If you're here, chances are you need a new set of glasses. Or perhaps this might be your very first time having optical issues. Whatever the case, knowing your pupillary distance can help you support your eyes better.
