Eyeglasses Information Eyeglasses Information

Glasses are the important element which determines a facial first impression.
The person΄s impression is decided by what kind of glasses he had chosen. If an appropriated one was chosen, certainly can express his character and given a positive impression. However when doing in an opposite way, the feedback on image will be reversed.
There are no definite solutions of glasses which surely look really good on you, but TAIKOEYEWORK would like to introduce some of the critical points to assist you on decision making.

Shape of Face

ROUND
Curved lines where the width and length of the face have the same proportions; there are no lines.
FIX ROUND
To make this face shape appears more oval, look for angular narrow frames. Mid or high temples to help lengthen. Colored temples to add width. Frames that is wider than deeper, such as an octagonal shape or rectangular.

OBLONG
Longer than it is wider. Characteristics of a straight cheek line and longer nose.
FIX OBLONG
Choose a lower bridge to shorten the nose. Dark frames to divide the length.

SQUARE
Characterized by a strong jaw line and wide forehead. Width and length are at the same proportions.
FIX SQUARE
Goal here is to soften the angles, and create a longer appearance. Look for frames that are longer than the widest part of the face, and that have more width than depth. Narrow ovals are an excellent choice.

DIAMOND
Shorter than it is wider & usually sharp in chin.
FIX DIAMOND FACE
Rimless glasses or frames that have more width than depth.


Frame fit your eyes

The eyes are perfectly sitting at the center of frame

The distance of frame is wider than the eye. Frame is too big.

The distance between eyes is wider than the frame & the lenses are sitting too close to lashes.

The frame sits too low on the face.


Frame Measurements

Pupillary distance (PD) measures.

Center to center distance between eye pupil (mm) = PD. Measure the distance between the center of the left and right eyes(In shop uses a dedicated machine)
If you want a balanced glasses, this "pupillary distance (PD)" and

"Horizontal width of a Len" + "nose width (Bridge Width - distance between lens)"
= the total number of you to choose the right size of the glasses.

Measure the width of the face
(Measured by instruments only)

Measure the length from side of face to ear
Measure the length of the frame from front to the ear
(Measured by instruments only)

Make sure you have the right size of frame
The glasses “size” usually indicated in numbers.

How to check the size of frame
Example :         51 □ 17-135
•    The spectacle lens 51 (lens shape) of horizontal width.
      (In this case the lens width is 51 mm)
•    17 is the distance between the lens portion into left and right
      That is, the width of the nose (bridge width)
      (In this case the bridge width is 17mm)
•    The last 135 of the horizontal portion of the glasses (Temple)
      For side of face, the length from front to the ear.
      (In this case the temple length is 135mm)

For metal frames
Basically, "metal frame" is also using the same indication.
English is written on the left of the size, represent the material being used.
      Example :    ALL TITAN" = All the materials used "titanium"
               "T-βTITAN" = T is that of the Temple. This means that only part of the Temple Beta-titanium (metal creep) is used.

How to choose a right size of frame
• When you wearing a glasses
   Feel tight - increase the width of a front frame
   Feel loose - reduce the width of a front frame
• When the temple area is
•  Too long - shorten the length of the temple → (usually in every 5 millimeters)
•  Too short - increase the length of the temple → (usually in every 5 millimeters)
• The frame should feel comfortable, without pulling or pinching your face.
•  The easiest way to size your new frames is to find a pair of your old frames that fit and measure from them.
• However the most importantly, check with your optometrist

Position of Spectacle lens
Increasing the distance between the pads may be appropriate when :
• The frame size sits too high on the face
• The bifocal segments or distance section of a progressive (varied-focal) lens are too high
• The bridge is too small for the nose
• The distance from the eye to the lens is too great
Decreasing the distance between the pads may be appropriate when :
• The frame sits too low on the face
• The bifocal segments or distance section of a progressive (varied-focal) lens are too low
• The bridge is too low for the nose
• The lenses are sitting too close to the eyes and lashes
