Choosing the right frame

The following primary filters are effective in narrowing down your search for the right pair of glasses.

1. Gender

filter-gender Choose Men or Women to narrow down your search.
Men: this selection includes both Men and Unisex frames.
Women: this selection includes both Women and Unisex frames

2. Size

filter-size Choose XX-Small, X-Small, Small, Medium, Large, or X-Large to narrow down your search.
Narrow: below 127mm
Medium: 127 – 140mm

To determine your size, take a ruler and measure the arm-to-arm distance of your current glasses in millimetre.

measuring the width of your existing eyeglasses

Note: If your current glasses do not fit well, use them as a gauge towards a better fitting pair.  For example, if your glasses currently measure 125 mm and they feel a bit small (temple arms are pressing against the sides of your face), go up a size.

Understanding size measurements for frames 

Sizes are often printed on the inside (left or right) temple arms of your glasses. For example, 50-17-135. The set of numbers represents lens width, bridge width and temple arm length, in millimetres. If size measurements are not printed on the inside temple arm, you can simply measure with a ruler.
