How glasses should properly fit?
Your glasses should sit in the middle of your face, no higher than your eyebrows. The total width of your frames should match the width of your face at the temples, leaving enough room on the sides to avoid digging in or leaving marks. Well-fitting glasses will create a sense of visual balance.
Should glasses be tight around ears?
Your glasses shouldn’t feel too tight or loose. From the temple arms to tips, they should sit comfortably behind your ears to avoid discomfort when you’re wearing them for long periods of time. You can easily adjust this by using gentle, steady pressure to wrap the frames more tightly around your face.
How do you know if glasses are too big?
Your eyeglasses may be too big if they are always sliding down your nose or falling off your face. Your frames should align horizontally with your eyes and tilt slightly forward so the bottom of the frame is closer to the face than the top of the frame.
