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 cross-section.

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 (average) size.

     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.

8) Can I get a Ronsir in the Ebony color on a Gold chassis or a Tortoise on Silver?

     A Silver or Gold chassis can be chosen for any Ronsir color. We only offer suggestions.
