A FEW HELPFUL TIPS FOR MEASURING YOUR FRAME
Finding The Perfect Frame Width
Your perfect frame should be slightly wider than your face — no more than a fingertip's width between the temple and your face. Any wider is a sign that your frames are too wide.
Get Cozy With Your Temple Length
Temple length is the measurement (in millimeters) of the frame's arms. The temple should fit horizontally and evenly along your face and fit comfortably along the outside of your ear.
Picking The Right Lens Height And Width
Your eyes should be centered within your lenses. Eyeglass frames that are too wide will make your eyes appear too close, while frames that are too narrow will make your eyes look farther apart.
Selecting The Ideal Bridge Width
The distance between a frame's two lenses is called the bridge width. The bridge of your glasses should sit comfortably against your nose. If you have close-set eyes, the ideal bridge width is a lower number. If you have wide-set eyes, the ideal bridge width is a higher number.
The width includes lens and bridge widths in millimeters. Look on the inside of the temple arm to find your frame measurements.
