Dimensional Break Down – Measure Your EyeGlasses!

The anatomy of an eyewear is divided into four major portions with each contributing to its structure, making it convenient to understand the eyewear paradigm. To order the most laudable frames, learn our dimensional breakdown and stagger past the sizing and fitting issues.

1) Width and Height of Lens:
The lens dimension has its own fair share in the importance of measuring the size of eyeglasses prior to purchase. Break this proportion into the longest and widest parts to formulate balance.  

2) Width of Bridge:

The bridge width highlights the distance between the two lenses on equal terms. As per opticians – individuals with closely knitted eyes should choose a frame having lower width bridge. Likewise – for widened pair of eyes – the width should remain high to grasp with perfection.

3) Length of Temples:

The temple length is vital and there to fixate our frame. Normally – it is between 150mm, 140mm and 135mm. Despite essentiality – the temple length is not widely different in eye frames.  

4)  Width of Frame:
The narrower the frame width, the wider the face looks. Do not purchase a pair that over-exposes the visage. Use a simple measuring scale to recognize and acknowledge the frame width.
