1) What does eye size refer to?
Eye size is the width of each lens at their widest points
across in millimeters.
2) What does bridge size refer to?
Bridge size is the distance that the two lenses are apart
from one another in millimeters.
3) What does TPL refer to?
TPL is the abbreviation for temple. These are the long pieces
of a frame that go behind the ear. Temples are measured in
millimeters or inches.
4) Why do your frames have so many size choices?
There are many sized people. We try to cover a broad
5) I currently wear glasses, what is my size?
There should be some numerical markings on the frame,
which indicate your sizing. The numbers might be on the
temples (see #3) on the bridge (see #2) on the back of the
frame, on the bottom of the frame, etc. If the numbers have
worn off, you can measure the width of the lenses and the
distance between the lenses with a millimeter ruler to
determine the eye size and the bridge size.
6) I do not currently wear glasses, what is my sizing?
More often than not, the size of an eyeglass frame that
an individual wears is determined by the physical size of the
person. A larger person will generally have a larger head/face
and vice versa.
Using the Ronsir example - a smaller person will
generally wear the 44-20-140 and a larger 50-24-150/158. For
the 44 Eye Ronsir, each lens would measure 44mm across. For
the 50 Eye Ronsir, each lens would measure 50mm across. The 46
Eye and 48 Eye Ronsir frames are considered to be standard
The width of a frame is very important. The frame
should be wide enough so that the temple (TPL) will go
straight back to the ear. We can send multiple sizes to assist
in determining the correct size.
7) What is the purpose of a cable temple?
Cable temples will hold the frame firmly in place.
Cable temples are great for activities like golf, tennis,
walking, jogging, etc. Cable temples are also great if you
wear your frames all day. The cable temples will prevent the
frames from slipping off the nose.
