There are a few things you should not compromise for style. When you are picking out eyewear, ensure that the size of the glasses or sunglasses look good on your face and fits you well. It is important to identify the measurements of glasses that are most comfortable for you and request your optician to provide you with designs of those sizes. If your glasses are not comfortable, you may end up not wearing them. This is exactly what you should try to avoid before making a purchase.

Different parts involved in the measurement of eyewear

Measuring eyewear involves the measurement of four different parts of glasses. Your Oakville frame size will be millimeters length of the eye size, the bridge size, the temple size and the vertical size respectively. The eye size is the width (horizontal) of a single lens of the glasses. The bridge refers to the part between the two lenses.

The connecting part of the frame that comes over your nose is the bridge. The temple size refers to the length from one temple to another, including the part where the frames bend. The vertical size simply means the height of a single lens in millimeters.

Sunglass sizes and prescription eyeglass sizes

Keep in mind that your sunglass size may not be the same as your eyeglass size. Most often,  your size for prescription eyeglasses will be far less compared to the size of your sunglasses. Quite a few sunglasses have wrapped frames. This means that the design is slightly curved around your face. Such glasses fit different people with a variety of shapes and sizes. You do not need to worry about the perfect size in this case.

Size variations for maximum comfort

If you purchase smaller framed dark glasses, you may want to look for something that fits you better. You can find the size of your frame on the temple near the model number of the frames. Frames come in many different sizes, so it will not be an issue to find something that fits you properly.

If you have determined what the right size for you is, you can buy frames that are up to three sizes above or below your size. This will have no significant impact on comfort. So be careful when it comes to measuring the right size of your eyewear to make sure that you are not troubled by unconformable glasses.
