    Recently, I have my eyes checked and got a new prescription. The results
    were not that much diff from the one I did about 2 years ago. One thing
    that kind of stood out is the PD readying. My new prescription is 67 mm
    and the old one is 71 mm. If I decide to get a new pair of progressive
    glass, what PD should I be using? 67, 71 or ...?

    Are you related to Babe Ruth?

    You should use neither because you should have individual PD's measured for
    each eye, and not just the combined PD. The person who does the fitting when
    you order your frames and lenses will redo the PD.
