High-Tech Lenses for the Digital Age
Whether you are searching for a particular frame and lens style or simply browsing, you're sure to find eyewear that's perfect for your face, and your prescription. Below are some tips to take the guesswork out of ordering eyewear online.
Knowing Your Frame Size:
When selecting eyeglasses or sunglasses at FramesDirect.com, it's helpful to know what size frame will fit you. You can find this information easily by looking at a pair of frames you may currently own, or by visiting a local optical store.
In the event you already have a pair of frames that you would like to purchase again or even find a pair of frames similar, you can quickly identify the designer name, model number, and frame size by simply looking on the inside of your eyeglass temples (arm pieces). Below you'll find a quick guide to helping you identify your eyeglasses.
Note: Every frame has the same markings on the temples (arm pieces) or behind the bridge (nose area) as shown here.
Calvin Klein 338
"Purple" or color # 80
"Eye size" and "bridge size", for example 48-19 or 52-20.
Usually between 120 and 150
This is the only information you need when ordering your eyeglass or sunglass frames. If you need assistance identifying your frames, feel free to contact FramesDirect.com and our opticians will be more than happy to help.
