How To Read Our Sizing
All sizing is listed in millimeters (mm) and follows the same convention. The first number is the A measurement, or the widest width of the lens, irregardless of the plastic or metal around it. It’s strictly the lens. The second number is the smallest distance between lenses, or DBL. This is commonly referred to as the bridge. The last number is the length of the temple itself. Extra measurements given are the B measurement which measures the largest vertical depth of the frame and the ED, or effective diameter, which measures the widest straight line you can make on the frame. Oftentimes this is the same as the A measurement. Like the A measurement, both the B and ED are strictly measurements of the lens and not the plastic or metal surrounding the frame.
