A box of lenses contains a pair of lenses for both eyes (2 lenses). Meaning if you want to purchase 1 pair, select quantity "1" to place order. Likewise, select "2" for 2 pairs of lens.

We do not offer different prescriptions in a single box of a pair of lenses for regular non or prescription lenses.

For Toric/Astigmatism lenses, you can select or choose different prescriptions individually/separately for both eyes.

Most of our lens base curve is 8.6mm. But not everyone has a 8.6mm bc, but what is usually accepted is a +/- 0.2mm deviation. As in, for 8.6mm bc, you can be 8.4~8.8mm and you should be okay.
If you are not sure, we suggest you seek advice from your optometrist or eye care specialist.
