How Do I Measure My Progressive Lens Segment Height Myself?
What is Segment Height (SH)?
Segment Height, also known as Seg Height or SH, is the vertical measurement in millimeters from the bottom of the lens in your frames, to the beginning of the progressive addition on a progressive lens, or the top line of a lined bifocal. Segment height does not apply to Single Vision lenses. The determined Segment Height is specific to each frame and wearer.
Our lab has over 50 years of optical experiencing with creating progressive lenses. We use a very accurate progressive lens formula that is precisely calculated to the frames you order. Our formula is accurate is most cases.
If you would like to measure your own segment height then you will need to have the frame in hand, because you can only measure it while the glasses are on your head. You can either purchase the frame without lenses first (click "Add Frame Only" on the product page) and then send them back to have lenses put in after the segment height has been measured. Or if you have already received your glasses and feel the segment height is not correct, you can use the frames you already have.How do I measure my own Segment Height?
