How do you know if your sunglasses are too small?
To find out if your glasses are too small for your head, look for these signs:
- Eyes toward the outer edge of your frames vs. in the center.
- Facial indents left behind from the temples.
- Pinching from the nose pads.
Are sunglasses supposed to fit tight?
The frame should fit snugly on your ears and nose. They shouldn’t pinch, squeeze or slide down. The weight of the sunglasses should be evenly distributed between your nose and ears. You shouldn’t have indents on your nose when you take them off.
What to do if glasses are tight?
If your glasses feel tight or loose:
You can adjust your temples by bowing them out or bending them in. Adding a slight outward bend on your temples will alleviate stress and tightness on the side of your head, and adding an inward bend will similarly tighten your glasses on your head.
How do you tell if glasses are too big for your face?
Glasses that are too big for your face will be constantly sliding down your nose. While most frames will slip to some extent, they should sit comfortably above the nose and behind your ears most of the time.
Where should your glasses sit on your ears?
The arms of your eyeglasses should go straight back towards your ears and only contact the side of your head just in front of your ears. If temples curve too early, they’ll push the glasses down your nose and apply too much pressure on the bridge, leading to headaches.
