Pupillary Distance For Multi-Focal Zero Power Top

This page is for people who want our progressive multi-focals with ZERO power on top. Specifically, the styles Texas Hold Em or Black Jack for $59.95.** The optics are more complicated in the middle area when glasses progress from a reading power on the bottom toward zero power on the top, especially in higher powers. It becomes imperative to align the lenses and frames with your eyes in a way that is uniquely YOU! This is a brand new product, and we will eventually consider developing an app, but for now, this method is actually EASIER for YOU, as well as most accurate.
Method 1: Send us your photo as follows. Three steps:
  1. Put a credit card on your forehead. You can hold it up to your forehead with one hand, just make sure you can see your pupils!


  2. Take a selfie with outstretched arm. (make sure your card number is not visible- you don't want to send that over an email)
  3. Email the photo with your first and last name to support@debspecs.com
Method 2: You can determine your own PD and email us. Two steps.
  1. Hold a ruler to your forehead, and take a selfie about arms length away. It's important that your face is centered in the image, no tilts or angles.
  2. Looking at that photo, measure the millimeters between pupils. (Almost all adults are between 54 & 74, with the average being closer to 60. )
  3. Email us the PD measurement and your first and last name to support@debspecs.com
**Our less expensive under $30 multi focals are one size fits all and sold as is. Please only email us Pupillary Distances for either Black Jack or Texas Hold Em multi focals.

Google Blocking Gmails

Google has been blocking gmails if you run out of storage space. (See image below.) As a result, some of our customers have not been receiving important alerts, including tracking and important order questions. It will look something like photo shown. If you have an android phone, we often unwittingly use up storage space. Please check the header of your online gmail account from a desktop or laptop to see if you're having this issue. It has been sporadic, so customers will get SOME of our emails but not ALL. Also, even if you get emails from other companies/people, Google has a algorhtym that guesses (often wrongly) what is important to you, then they block the "unimportant" emails, which could be from DebSpecs.

We take undelivered emails VERY seriously and try to trouble shoot all reported customer issues. , however, some things are out of our control.

Measuring Lens Blue & UV Filtration

DebSpecs is excited to get our hands on a spectrometer so we can get the scoop on how our computer lenses work to filter out UV and harmful blue light. Before, we relied on the information provided by our manufacturers, which is proving to be accurate. However, we didn't have any information on our low cost (under $20) computer readers. Scroll to read more.

Melanin Lenses $40-$60 100% UV & 54% Blue Light filtration
ClearBlue Lenses $40-$60 65% UV & 50% Blue Light filtration
Instagram $15.95 29% UV & 29% Blue Light filtration
computer glass spectrometer reading

Above: These affordable, fashionable over the counter computer readers called Instagram block a percentage of UV & Blue Light. Though 25% UV filtration is a danger for OUTDOORS, it is adequate for indoors, because modern glass and windows already filter out at least 75%. Though only 25% of the blue light is blocked, it also has MORE that's reflected away from the AR coating. Is it enough? So far, (according to American Academy Of Opthamology) the only evidence of issues stemming from long hours of looking at digital screens is eye strain. Therefore, these inexpensive readers could solve your eye strain, and you may not need a better filtration lens. They have worked for many of our customers.

ABOVE: Though more expensive, Melanin lenses have a much better rate of blocking harmful blue light. It's also incredible at blocking UV light. So much so (100%) that you can wear them outdoors to protect your eyes in sunlight! Other benefits of melanin lens glasses are the amber tint, which prevents visual fatigue by enhancing contrast. The tint also minimizes glare. You can view our entire line of optical quality frames and Melanin lenses here>>

As we've noted in other blog and informational posts, unlike with direct sunlight, there is NO direct evidence that devices emit enough harmful blue & UV rays to cause serious eye diseases, such as macular degeneration. As of now, all evidence points to eye strain. This in itself is incredibly important, because the resultant headaches, watery or tired eyes can effect our stamina to work and as well as mental focus and even visual acuity. Many of our customers love the inexpensive computer readers. Many swear by our higher end Melanin readers. The bottom line is use your common sense. We have a 30 day refund policy, so feel free to try any products. Keep in mind that we don't refund shipping nor supply return labels, so that's your only risk.

Outside The Box. The Circle Square Glasses

As happens on a monthly basis, one of our vendors sent us samples and among the new styles was a pair of eyeglasses that turned our perception upside down. Circle square glasses. For the next two days, it became the most hotly debated item we ever considered carrying. Half the camp swore they were too weird, and that nobody would ever wear them. The other half swore by them. We went as far as to come up with personality profiles of people who would dare. (Creative artists. High style fashionistas who follow countless style blogs and watch runway shows. Crafty people. Yoga and meditation disciples who were open to change. ) Though our Dear Leader and CEO Debby was at first in the "ridiculous" camp, she was never one to resist a good shopping binge. She ultimately hopped on the phone with said vendor and ordered a few dozen. As the circle square glasses attracted some negative troll attention on social media, they very quickly became our biggest sellers. We even heard that one of our customers was a millennial who posted them on his YouTube channel just to poke fun. One thing is undeniable. They stretch the imagination. Like key less cars and remote-less televisions, they redefine our expectation of shape and eyeglasses. Soon after we discovered that they were also being made with copious amounts of brilliant, shiny Swarovski crystals.
