Every pair of sunglasses is different, so the size information might not always be in the same place. For most frames, the size is stamped on the inside of the temples or nose bridge. Rarely, you'll find it on the earpiece. In general, you are looking for (2) two-digit numbers and (1) three-digit number.
The lens width and bridge sizes are usually side by side and separated by a square box icon. The temple size may or may not follow immediately, depending on the maker. Not sure of your size?

You'll need to determine the size of your face in millimeters. Using a straight millimeter ruler, float the ruler in front of your face and measure the distance between your temples. The resulting measurement is the best frame size for your face. Need help? FramesDirect.com has trained staff available to help you every step of the way. Call us at 1-800-248-9427.
Sunglasses tend to be a bit larger than eyeglasses, so the size of your sunglasses will most likely be a little different than your eyeglasses size. With sunglasses, you'll also have a bit wider range of size options, since the fit doesn't need to be as precise. Depending on the brand and style, you can go a little larger or smaller than your eyeglasses.
