Finding what glasses fit your face best can be a daunting task if you’re unsure of your facial measurements. Trying on multiple pairs of glasses may seem like the best bet, but knowing your measurements will surely expedite the process.
How To Find Your Eye Measurements
The first step in finding your measurements is knowing the size of your own head, as this is a reference point for what size sunglasses you’ll need. Start by lining a ruler up (on the millimeter side) with your temple and measure straight across to the other temple. This measurement is the best frame size for your face.
What Does the Eye Size Mean?
The eye size of glasses/sunglasses refers to the width of the lenses at the widest part and is the most common measurement you’ll see in reference to the size of glasses.
What Does Bridge Size Mean?
Bridge size refers to the piece of metal or plastic that connects the lenses. To measure the bridge, you must start and end at the innermost side of the lenses and measure along to the same spot on the other side of the bridge.
What Does the Temple Size Mean?
Temple size refers to the measurement of the arms of the sunglasses. The temple measurement of the arms starts at the hinges of the glasses and continues in a straight line to the farthest point without sloping downward.
