How to Find Glasses That Fit

Finding the proper fit for eyeglasses is important, and not as difficult as you might think. With just a few short measurements, you can find the perfectly-fitted pair of glasses for your face.

Determining Frame Size

frame size

The best way to find the correct fit is to measure a pair of glasses that fit well. Most frames have their measurements listed on the inside temple. Eyewear measurements are usually three numbers such as 53-17-140. The numbers, read left to right, indicate the lens width (from 30-65), the bridge width (from 10-25), and the temple length (from 100-160). Look for frames within 1-3 mm of the shown lens width, 1-2 mm of the shown bridge width, and 4-6 mm of the shown temple length.

Getting the Correct Measurements

Sometimes the numbers on the inside temples of the glasses have rubbed off and are no longer visible. Using a ruler with millimeters, measure each portion of the frames.

How to Measure Lens Width:

How to Measure Lens Width

Measure the lenses horizontally across the widest point.


How to Measure Bridge Width:

How to Measure Bridge Width

Measure across the bridge, which is the part of the frame that sits on the nose.


How to Measure Temple Length:

How to Measure Temple Length

Measure the temple or the “arm” of the frame from the screw to the section where the bend begins. Then measure the part of the temple that bends behind the ears and add those two measurements together to get the temple length.

Measuring Pupillary Distance (PD)

Pupillary distance (PD) is the distance between the pupils of your eyes. This measurement ensures the lenses are centered to your eyes correctly. Learn how to measure your pupillary distance (PD) with our detailed guide. Adults generally have a pupillary distance between 54 and 68 mm.

After you have all of the measurements, you can start shopping for the perfect pair of glasses. Look for the Frames That Fit button while shopping to add your personal measurements.
