Sunglasses Measurement

How to measure your face to choose the right sunglasses size


How To Measure For Frame Width

Sunglasses measurement can be one of the most difficult things to figure out when purchasing sunglasses online. It can be confusing when trying to get the correct size to fit your face and avoid returning them for the correct size.

The quickest and easiest way is to have someone hold a ruler across the front of your face and measure the distance from one side of your face to the other. Some people say measure temple to temple; however, it is important to get the width correct so that the frame temples don't bend outward when you put on your sunglasses.

If you don't have someone available to assist you try measuring the width using a mirror. If that doesn't work measure another pair of eye glass frames you may already have.

While this way of sunglasses measurement will give you the necessary inside width you want for a comfortable fit most manufacturers and dealers don't provide that dimension. Rather most sunglasses measurements are given as the width of one of the lenses at it's widest point.

How Manufacturers Indicate Size

When you see the sunglasses measurement (size) stated as "55mm" we are talking about the width of one lens at it's widest point. Some companies will provide a chart to convert sizes like "55mm" to a frame width; however, the actual frame width will depend upon a number of other factors.

                          The Parts Of Sunglasses Frames

Above you can see the various parts of a sunglasses frame along with what each part is called. This is the first step in understanding how to decide on the correct sunglasses measurement when choosing a pair of sunglasses for yourself. As you can imagine the actual width of the frame is the total of the following items:

  1. The hinges;
  2. The bridge;
  3. The eye size.
Each of these items are sized in millimeters and the sum of the width of 2 hinges, 1 bridge and 2 lens eye sizes will give you the inside width of a pair of sunglasses in millimeters. You can then convert that number to inches and compare with the sunglasses measurement you made earlier.


Use A Suggested Size Chart

Above you can see a chart provided by Randolph Engineering to help choose the correct sunglasses size without having to worry about making a sunglasses measurement.

As a rule of thumb most women will prefer the 52mm size sunglasses while most men will prefer the 55-57mm size sunglasses. Tall men or men with more round faces may prefer the 58-61mm size sunglasses instead.

While this chart is for sunglasses manufactured by Randolph Engineering it is still useful for figuring out what will work for other sunglasses because the DBL (Distance Between Lenses) or bridge is usually in the 17 to 22mm range.


Look At Your Present Sunglasses

If all of this confuses you there is one other way you may be able to figure out the correct sunglasses measurement for yourself. If you already have a pair of sunglasses that fit well and that you really like, take a look at the inside of one of the temples. The image below shows you where you can find that information and what it means:

How To Find The Size Of Your Glasses or Sunglasses On The Temples

The most important thing is to make sure that when you purchase your pair of sunglasses online that the seller will exchange them for the correct size at no cost to you. Sunglasses measurement is more art than anything else - how the sunglasses look, fit and feel is really more a personal preference than anything else.

Randolph Military Pilot Sunglasses

We are an Authorized Dealer for Randolph Engineering and these are Genuine Randolph Military Pilot sunglasses, the very same sunglasses that are standard issue to US military pilots. Why is this important?

Because your Randolph warranty will be valid for as long as you own your sunglasses!

Discover 3 reasons why these Randolph Military Pilot Sunglasses trounce the competition:
  1. The Crown Mineral Glass lenses will not scratch easily like plastic or polycarbonate lenses which means you will see everything clearly even after many years of use;
  2. The UV protection provided by theses glass lenses will block 100% of harmful UV radiation;
  3. The 18% Nickel Silver frames will not break even if twisted into a knot.

And a fourth: Your Genuine Randolph Military Pilot Sunglasses Will Come From A Randolph Engineering Factory Authorized Dealer!

Consider the following:

Why Sunglasses Lens Materials Are Important UV rays can damage your eyes because 99% of UV radiation is absorbed by the front of your eyes.

Choosing the right lenses for your sunglasses is an important consideration. Many sunglasses today are made with plastic lenses which are highly susceptible to being scratched.

In addition, plastic lenses will not block 100% of UV radiation UNLESS they have a UV blocking film applied to the lens.

The problem is that over time the film can begin to peel off of the lens leaving your eyes unprotected.

While polycarbonate lenses will block 100% of harmful uv radiation they can easily be scratched and often times have anti-reflective films applied to them and these films can deteriorate or come off over time.

How Sunglasses Frame Materials Protect Your Investment

Metal frames are the most popular material for eyeglass frames and there are many types of metal that can be used.

Randolph Engineering uses 18% nickel silver eye wire because the solder used to hold the sunglasses frame together adheres extremely well to this particular metal combination making it almost impossible for the frame to break apart or the joints to separate.

In fact, Randolph is so confident in the eye wire and solder they use to put the frames together that they offer a lifetime solder joint guarantee.

If, for any reason, the frame joints come apart, Randolph will repair or replace the frame free of charge.

With Randolph's lifetime warranty on their frame you can be confident that they will last for many years.
