Prescription Verification only applies to USA and Korea.
PinkyParadise strive to provide the best care possible to our customers. As such, we have implemented a verification system that is in compliance with the FCLCA and Rules for USA and Korea customers. Under the Fairness to Contact Lens Consumer Law (FCLCA), we are required to verify your contact lens prescription.

You can provide us a copy of your valid prescription written by eye care professionals. You can either scan or snap a picture of your written prescription. Once the prescription is uploaded, we will keep the record for you, you can check out anytime without the need to re-upload again. Providing invalid or inaccurate prescription may result in order cancellation.
2) Submit contact detail of your eye care professional/optometrist/optician.
Kindly provide us with the necessary information, name and phone number of your eye care professionals.

You shouldn't order contacts with an expired prescription. You will need a current, valid prescription to make purchase. It’s important to schedule a regular eye exam to protect your eyes and overall health.
Can I purchase contacts online without a prescription?
No, you cannot legally purchase contacts in the United States and South Korea without a valid prescription. Do obtain a valid prescription from your eye care professional
I want to purchase non-prescription contacts. Do I still need a prescription?
Yes, you still need a current, valid prescription to make purchase. Even for contacts that do not correct your vision, a prescription is required from an eye care
How To Read Rx
OD: OD stands for oculus dexter, the Latin phrase for “right eye.”
If both the left and right eye has the same diagnosis and prescription information, the abbreviation “OU” is used instead, or “ocular uniter,” meaning both eyes.
Sphere (SPH): This indicates the amount of lens power, measured in diopters (D), prescribed to correct myopia (nearsightedness) or hyperopia (farsightedness). The spherical power of a lens is indicated with a plus sign (+) for hyperopia and a minus sign (-) for myopia. PinkyParadise only supply Myopia lenses at the moment.
Cylinder (CYL): This indicates the amount of lens power for astigmatism. If no cylinder power is noted, either you’ve no astigmatism or your astigmatism is so slight that it is not really necessary to correct it with your eyeglass lenses. PinkyParadise do sell colored contacts for astigmatism, check out our Toric lenses page.
Axis: This describes the degree and direction of your astigmatism. The axis is a figure which determines the angle of the correction needed to see clearly, measured in degrees from 1 to 180.
Base Curve (BC): The base curve determines what type of fit is required for the lens to meet the curve of your eye. This is usually written in millimetres or sometimes with the words: flat, median or steep.
Diameter (DIA): The diameter of a lens determines what length of width that best fits your eye. It measures the width of a lens in millimeters, from end to end.
