you already have a pair of eyeglasses or sunglasses and you love how they
fit -- compare their measurements with those on our frames.
Measure inside, across the front, from hinge to
Measure outside, across the front, from widest point
to widest point
Measure full temples from the hinge to the end that
goes behind the ear
Check inside the temple arms (or under the bridge) for the
size. The first number is the Eye Size, followed by a
dash or a square, then the bridge size
some space and then the temple size.
Notes about true vintage eyeframes:
They usually run smaller...our heads
have gotten bigger over the years!
Do not expect perfection, these frames
are 30 - 50 years old.
For a perfect fit, temples will need
adjustment or straightening when fitted with your own
The temples (ear pieces) often have
warping caused by the frames sitting folded up for so
many years. This can be easily adjusted by your eye care
The frames can be gently heated and then molded to fit
your face perfectly.
The curve that goes
over your ear can also be lengthened in the same manner
