For optimum comfort, your eyeglasses need to be properly fitted for you. When your eyewear doesn’t fit you correctly, you can experience discomfort and your vision might also be affected. If you are feeling uncomfortable while wearing your new glasses, let your optometrist know as soon as possible.
Here are tips to help you make sure your new glasses fit properly.
Choose Glasses That Are Suitable for Your Face Shape
The frames of your new eyeglasses should not press into the sides or front of your head. Choose frames that are as wide as the widest part of your face. Experienced eye care providers typically use a three-point rule to make sure your new glasses fit correctly.
Your New Glasses Shouldn’t Be Too Tight or Loose
The lenses of your glasses should sit effortlessly in front of your eyes if they fit correctly. Sunglasses and drugstore reading glasses usually have straight-back temples. They are ideal for people who take their glasses on and off various times a day. However, most eyeglass frames have skull temples, which hug your ears for the best fit.
Don’t Forget to Consider the Lens Size
The small middle piece on the front of your frame that lies on your nose is the bridge. It should rest on your nose without pinching or causing your glasses to slide off. With the right bridge size, your glasses will sit comfortably on your face, and your eyes will align properly within your lenses.
