" of your
glasses. The eye size will be printed on the inside of either temple arm or the inside of the bridge. It
is typically followed by a box or a dash with the next number indicating the bridge width. In the example above,
the eye size is 50 and the bridge is 18. either 5018 or 50-18 would be printed on the glasses. If it unreadable, measure across the lens of one eye at its widest part. The 140 in the example is the temple
arm length and not used in clip-on fit.
2. With most metal frames, a clip-on one size large than
your frame - in this example 52 in the correct shape - will provide the best fit.
3. To determine
the correct shape, measure your glasses with a metric ruler from the top of the frame to the bottom.
This is the "B measurement
4. Compare your A and B measurement to the charts for the basic shape of your glasses to
determine the best fit. The third set of numbers in the chart is the bridge distance.
If the bridge distance of your glasses exceeds the clip bridge
distance by more than 1-2mm the clip will not fit correctly. Consider purchasing the Glide-Fit Clip-on.
5. Click on the image of the shape that matches your glasses. Make sure your printer settings are set to 100%, actual size, no scaling of size. Print the templates, place your ruler next to the ruler image to verify the template printed the correct size, and compare the fit with the template. Sometimes a different shape will provide a better fit.
6. Copy ALL
the information printed on the inside of BOTH
temple arms and include the information after entering the size and shape. We use this to
verify the fit selection in our frame database.
