What Does Plano Mean in an Eye Prescription?

Report as

Sphere is used to indicate how myopic or hyperopic a person is. If a person is myopic, he or she will get a negative sphere number. If he or is farsighted a postive sphere number will result. If the person has a sphere number of zero, it is called a plano which means that a person doesn't have any problems with refraction.

Plano means that there is no change to be made to your vision. The doctor may prescribe mild glasses for sunlight or other reasons.
