To ensure your frames fit correctly we provide key measurements in the product details.
As a guide we advise that your frames sit comfortably without any tightness or pinching. The eyebrows should generally not sit within the lens area and pupils should be in the centre. Importantly, your frames should not slip down your nose –
no matter the dramatic licence.
