What does sphere mean on my prescription?


Sphere refers to the power of your lens (measured in dioptre units) to correct the degree of short or long sight you have. It is common for the number to be different for each eye. The figures will have a plus sign if you are longsighted and a minus sign if you are short-sighted.
