When ordering your new eyeglasses you need them to fit flawlessly. Sunglasses on the other hand tend to be larger than eyeglasses, so your sunglasses size will most likely be different than your eyeglasses size. With sunglasses, you have more freedom to choose within a wider range of sizes, since the fit does not need to be as precise.
Every pair of glasses is different, so the size information may not always be located in the same place. Look on the inside of your current frames. You will find the size information stamped either on the temple or on the bridge.
There can be quite a few different kinds of numbers inside your frame, and not all of them are relevant to the size. The most common numbers are three:
This is the horizontal measurement from the outside edge to the inside edge of one lens. Typical widths are 40â€“62 mm.
A set of capital letters and numbers grouped together is generally the model number or the frame color/style number(s). For example in Alexander Sunglasses ALS915/9914 the ALS915 represents the model and the 9914 the collor of teh frame.
