GLASSES SIZING GUIDE
Glasses Sizing Guide
Choosing the right size for your glasses is essential to ensure a comfortable fit and clear vision. This guide will help you understand how to measure your glasses and select the perfect pair.
Understanding Glasses Measurements
Glasses measurements are usually printed on the inside of the temple arm or the bridge of the frame. These numbers represent the lens width, bridge width, and temple length. For example, a frame with the measurements 52-18-140 would have a lens width of 52 mm, bridge width of 18 mm, and temple length of 140 mm. A lens width of 52mm and Bridge of 18mm would mean the width of the frame from hinge to hinge would be ~122mm (52x2 + 18)
How to Measure Your Glasses
- Lens Width: Measure the horizontal width of one lens at its widest point, usually from the edge of the frame to the bridge. This measurement is in millimeters.
- Bridge Width: Measure the width of the bridge, which is the part of the frame that rests on your nose. This measurement is also in millimeters.
- Temple Length: Measure the length of the temple arm, which is the part of the frame that extends over your ear. This measurement is typically in millimeters as well.
Selecting Your Glasses
When choosing your glasses, consider the following factors:
- Face Shape: Determine your face shape (oval, round, square, heart, or diamond) and select frames that complement it. For example, if you have a round face, angular frames can help add definition, while people with square faces may prefer round or oval frames to soften their features.
- Frame Size: Use your glasses measurements to choose a frame size that fits comfortably. A well-fitting frame should sit comfortably on your nose, with the temple arms resting comfortably on your ears and not pinching or slipping.
- Style: Consider your personal style and how your glasses can enhance your overall look. Think about factors such as frame color, shape, and material.
By following this guide, you'll be well on your way to selecting the perfect pair of glasses that fit comfortably and suit your style. Happy shopping!
