FAQ ON FRAME
How do I measure my frames?
Check the inside of the temple arm and there should be some numbers there. These numbers are your frame measurements.
Where can I find my frame’s measurements?
All our frames have a few numbers printed on the inside of the temple arm. These refer to the model number, lens width, bridge width, and temple arm length of your frames. We recommend comparing the measurements of your current glasses to the frame measurements on our website; this will give you an idea for how a pair will fit you.
What do the numbers printed on my frame mean?
For example: LTO6304 50¨15-135, the LTO6304 printed on the inside of a temple arm (the part that goes behind your ear) on a frame is the manufacturer's model or stock number. But farther down the temple arm, these are the important numbers that refer to the dimensions of a frame. These numbers are the measurement, in millimeters, of the lens width, bridge, and temple arm length.
What frame material is right for me?
That's a decision that can only be made by you, but we can help! If you want a super light frame, go with one that's 15 grams or lower. Titanium frames are generally very light. If you want a durable frame, go with stainless steel or memory titanium. If you are allergic to metals, stay away from metal alloy and memory titanium frames, both of which use nickel, an allergen. Stick with frames made of hypoallergenic materials, such as stainless steel or titanium. If you like plastic frames, choose an acetate frame, because acetate is cellulose-based, and therefore hypoallergenic.
What frame style is best for my face shape?
Basically, go with a frame style that contrasts with your face shape, and that is scaled to fit your face. If you have a square face, go with an oval or round frame. If you have an oval or round face, go with a rectangular frame. If you have a heart-shaped face, go with a narrow, round, bottom-heavy frame.
What is full-rim, half-rim, or rimless?
Full-rim glasses, especially in the nerd-chic look, are very popular. They are generally more durable than half-rim or rimless frames. Half-rim frames are great for people with slim faces. The show more of your face than full-rim frames, and are more durable that rimless glasses. Rimless glasses are great for people who will treat their glasses delicately, and who want their glasses to be practically invisible on their face.
How do I know if a frame fits me?
First, it should be comfortable. Here are a few rules of thumb:
· Pupils should be near the center of the lens
· Lenses shouldn’t extend past the side of your face
· Eyebrows should not be inside the glasses
· When you smile, your cheeks don’t push the frames up
· Frames shouldn’t slide down your nose
