How To Take
Measurements of the
Eyeglasses Frame?

Take the glasses you’re wearing in your hands and look at the inner side of the temples (or arms of the glasses as they’re called).

You’ll spot a combination of numbers on any inner side of the temples.
For example, numbers like 4822140? This is the measurement of the whole frame- ‘48 is the width of the lens, ‘22’ is the length of the bridge, and ‘140’ is the length of the temple (arm).

Size of eyeglasses is based on the width of the lens size (in millimetres).

small
49 and below

medium
50-52

large
53 and above
