So, it is important to purchase those eyeglasses that fit well and distribute the pressure equally to the head width, nose, and ears.

Guidelines for Glasses Measurement

The guidelines are helpful to find out the best-fitted frame for your face and you don’t need to get worried about anything after purchasing the frame of your choice. All you need to know is the width, height, and many other factors. 


It is an interesting fact that all glasses have information printed about the frame measurements. You can find all the information on the arms inside or inside nose piece. Before purchasing these eyeglasses, you should measure nose bridge for glasses in order to avoid future troubles. All the glasses have the numbers like 53, 20, and 140. Sometimes, the small rectangle shape separates the numbers 53 and 20. The lens diameter is written on the left side (53) of the frame. It is actually the lens length at the widest point which is basically measured in millimeters. 


The number which is written on the right side (20) is actually the bridge width. This depicts the distance between two lenses and this part typically fits on the nose. This number is very important because the fitting of the eyeglasses depends on this number. Finally, 140 is the length of the arm on the eyeglasses. The most amazing thing is that Lensmart has all these measurements available and you can purchase the fitted eyeglasses accordingly. 


We contain all the measurements including lens height, bridge width, lens diameter, and arm length.



How to Measure Your Face for the Frame?

For purchasing online, first of all, you need to have the ruler along with you. Stand and look yourself in the mirror and align the ruler with the temple. 


Measure the distance in inches basically between the temples. Always remember to multiply the measured value by 25.4 in order to convert from the inches to those of millimeters. After measuring the face, calculate the total width of the frame of those glasses. This should be the sum of the width of both lenses plus the width of the bridge. 


From the measurement, the frame size can vary typically by +/- 3mm. Simply, you need to choose the frame size that is around your face length.


Hence, from left to right, the measurement of eyeglasses appears in this order:

  • Lens Width

  • Bridge Width

  • Temple Length

  • Lens Height


All these measurements are always in millimeters.
