What are opticians looking for when fitting a pair of glasses?
- The frame shape and design details suit the shape of your face.
- The frame size suits the width of your face and head, ensuring they fit without being too tight or too loose. Too narrow will create pressure points on the side of your head and too wide may cause them to slip down your nose and/or fall off your face.
- The frame color compliments your eye color, hair color, skin tones, and wardrobe.
- The bridge of the frame rests comfortably on the bridge of your nose. The pressure from a bridge that is too large or too small can cause redness and irritation on your nose.
- The temples are the appropriate length. Temples that are too long or too short can be uncomfortable and cause a poor fit. We custom fit your temple bend specifically to your ears for optimal comfort and function.
- The frame size and shape is suitable for your prescription and your visual needs. Our opticians have the experience to ensure that your lenses and frame combine beautifully so you look great and see clearly.
