ABOUT FRAME SIZES
Everyone’s face is special and unique. To ensure a perfect fit, it is important to first determine the best frame size for your face. Before browsing our frames collection, look on the inside of your current pair of glasses or sunglasses, you’ll see inside the temple a number that looks like: 51 17 142. This information shows you the size of your glasses; the lens diameter, the bridge width and the side length, all measured in millimeters. If your current glasses fit well, it’s recommended that you choose glasses that have similar measurements. In the case of SAVANNA Eyewear eyeglasses, these dimensions are printed on the demo-lenses and the inner temple. The first number, the eye size, represents the horizontal width of the lenses through which your eyes see. The next size to consider is the bridge, the distance between your two lenses. Lastly, you need to know the temple size, the measurement from the screw to the temple tip, including the bend that sits on your ear.
The Eye Size
Eye size is the horizontal width of each lens at its widest point. SAVANNA Eyewear lenses typically range from 40mm to 60mm. Children’s sizes could be slightly smaller.
The bridge is the distance between the lenses. In other words, it's the size of the "bridge" of the frame that rests on your nose. In most cases, the bridge size of our eyeglass frames and sunglasses range from 14 mm to 24 mm.
The temple is the "stem" or "arm" of the frame, measured from the frame hinge to the back tip of the temple. In this case, the temple length is 140 mm. Temple lengths generally range from 120 mm to 150 mm.
Eyewear Fit Categories
SAVANNA Eyewear classifies optical frame and sunglass sizes in three categories: small, medium, and large. Frame and sunglass categories slightly differ due to their different functions. Each pair is measured across the widest part of a lens, which is called the lens diameter. If the widest part of the lens is from top to bottom, then that would be the lens diameter.
