How do I know the right size for me?
You can try our Size Advisor and let us measure it for you or you can measure the hinge to hinge distance of a pair of glasses you already own with a ruler.
If you already own a pair of glasses, you will see some numbers engraved on the inside of the eyewear temple:
The first one is the Model name, then the Lens width and Bridge width. There is usally a third number which represents the Temple Length, which is the measurement in millimeters of the 'arms' of the frame. Sometimes there is also a fourth number which is the Lens Height.
Each of these numbers is measured in mm
