Find the best styles to flatter your face.
If you have a pair of glasses that fits you perfectly, take the dimensions and use them to ensure that your new glasses will fit just as well. The measurements are often written as three consecutive numbers on the arm: Lens Width, Bridge Width, Temple Length. If you can't find the measurements on the arm, it's easy to measure them yourself. (Remember to measure in millimeters!)
A crucial component of fit, the bridge width measures the distance between the lenses and determines how the glasses will rest on your nose. Smaller measurements suit narrower bridges, while larger measurements suit broader bridges. Normal range: approximately 14mm-24mm.
The lens width is taken from the outermost edge of a single lens to its inside edge. This measurement helps indicate how the glasses will look on your face. Normal range: approximately 40mm-62mm.
The length of each temple is taken from the tip of the arm to the hinge that connects to the lenses. Normal range: approximately 120mm-150mm.
Learn what your lenses can do for you and which ones work best for your lifestyle.
Keep in mind that darker lenses do not equal higher UV protection, so look for lens treatments and colors that best suit your lifestyle.
Different lens colors make your eyes react differently to varying light. Find out which colors work best for your favorite activities and conditions.
