The Frame Size

A fitting pair of sunglasses should have the frame correspond to the overall width of the face. Small or narrower faces blend well with smaller frames while wider faces should have wider frames. The thickness or thinness of the frames depends on the face shape. For instance, square faces blend may go well with thick frames.

The Nose Bridge 

The nose bridge provides support between the lens and the face. Different people have different nose sizes; some are big, some are small, others are long while others are flat or narrower. People with large noses need sunglasses with a lower nose bridge. Those with medium-sized noses need a low or medium nose bridge while those with small noses require sunglasses with high nose bridges. In some cases, some companies produce sunglasses that can be adjusted to fit the nose size.

The Lens Type 

The color of the lenses identifies your fashion statement and shows how well you can contrast or differentiate colors. There are various shades of colors such as black, brown, purple, orange, red, gray, or green. The lens should always complement your coloring; such as skin color, hair, and apparel. You have to make sure that the lens color is deep and dark enough that the eyes are barely visible. 

Your sunglasses should fit like a glove and provide you with adequate vision correction and protection. If you are looking to have your sunglasses sized professionally, then we encourage you to schedule a visit at Mountain Eye Care today.
