Glasses Frame Size Guide
Once you’ve chosen the frame you want to order you will need to select the colour and the size of your frames and click the ‘ADD LENSES’ button.
Please make sure you fill in all of the sections and double-check that the information you have entered is correct. When selecting your frame size, some models will offer more than one selection. Pick the one that is closest to your measurements; if you don’t understand what the frame sizes mean, see below.
Once we receive your prescription and have ordered your lenses, we are unable to make any prescription changes. If you do not notice that you’re prescription is incorrect until after we have received your order, you may be liable to pay for your new prescription lenses.
Where To Find Your Frame Size
If you already have a pair of prescription glasses, you can find your frame size on the inside of the frame arm. Sometimes you can find your frame size on the side of the nose pad. All measurements are in millimetres (mm).
CHANEL: Brand name
3229-Q: Model name
c.555: Colour name
51-17: Frame size (This is what you’ll need, when adding your prescription online)
135: Frame arm length/side length
Referring to the image above, you will notice that the frame size has two sets of digits (51-17).
The first set of digits represents the lens size
Eg. 51 = 51mm
The second set of digits represents the DBL
Eg. 17 = 17mm
When ordering online, you will sometimes find the measurement for the side length. If you don’t see a measurement for the side length, don’t panic.
Most manufacturers have a set length however this can be altered. If you know that you’ll need your side length altering, please contact us to speak to our Customer Service team.
How Your Frames Should Fit
The bridge of the frame should sit on your nose bridge without any gaps. If you find that there is a gap between your frame and your nose, you will need to have your glasses adjusted.
Metal Frames: The hinges of the nose pads are easily adjustable however you should leave this to the professionals. Visit your local opticians who can adjust your frames, usually without a charge.
Acetate Frames: With acetate frames, adjusting the nose area is difficult. This is why it is strongly recommended that you visit us or your local opticians to try on the frames before you buy.
