Frame Fit and Comfort
According to research by the eyewear industry, women are typically more interested in the way their eyeglasses look, while men seem to be more interested in comfort and fit.
If your frames don’t fit well, however, or aren’t comfortable, you won’t want to wear them. Don’t let that happen. Here are some tips for getting the best fitting frames:
- Choose frames that are wide enough for your face so that the temples don’t fit too tightly. The outer edge of the frame should be in line with your cheek bones or the widest part of your face. Not only will they be more comfortable, but they’ll give a more balanced look to your face.
- Are the temples long enough? The curve at the end of the earpieces should rest comfortably behind your ears without pressing down on them or pressing tightly into your head.
- The nosepiece should also fit comfortably without pinching, and the bridge should perfectly fit your nose. If the bridge sits on the top of your nose and flares out at the sides, the weight of the glasses will make them very uncomfortable. Many glasses have soft, silicone nose pads that can be adjusted for a customized fit.
- When you first get your new eyeglasses from Elmquist Eye Group, move your head up and down and bend forward to be sure your glasses will stay where they belong. With properly adjusted nose pads and temples, your glasses should stay comfortably in place.
