How to measure glasses

Finding the right size for you is a fairly easy process, as we provide dimensions for all frames presented in our boutique.

Measurements are listed in millimeters (mm) and all sizes for each product are provided directly by manufacturer.
The three standard measurements provided are lens width, bridge width and temple length. Please see image below on how to interpret these dimensions.

Frame Dimensions

LENS
WIDTH

40 - 62MM

This measurement determines the horizontal length of one lens. The range is 40-62mm. Average size 49-51mm for opticals, and 51-53 for sunglasses.

BRIDGE
WIDTH

14 - 25MM

The bridge measurement is the distance between the two lenses. Range is 14-24mm. Average size is 18-21mm. If you have a small bridge, stick with a frame below 20mm. Keep in mind that a frame with nose pads is adjustable and will guarantee a better fit.

TEMPLE
LENGTH

120 - 150MM

The temple length is simply the length of the two arms that extend to the ears and support the frame. Specific temple lengths should only be considered if you know that your ears are placed closer or farther from your nose beyond what is noted as average. Range is 120-150mm. Average adult size is 145-148mm.
