How to choose the correct glasses frame size?

There is one more key factor you have to take into account while choosing eyewear. It’s necessary to choose glasses with the proper eye size depending on your face shape and width. The eye size represents the horizontal width of the lenses. Normally, the eye size of most eyeglasses ranges from 40 mm to 62 mm. Here, in the table below, you will see the size range of lenses.
