Important! Sport protective eyewear must be properly fit to the individual wearer. This is particularly important with children because the normal temptation is to purchase a larger frame than is needed today so the youngster has "room to grow."
Some growing room is acceptable, and sports eyewear are made to be somewhat flexible in their width adjustment. But if the frames are too large and don't fit properly, the amount of protection they provide will be compromised, increasing the risk of eye injury. It's a risk not worth taking.
How do I know if a frame fits? Are they comfortable? That’s a great start.
Otherwise, a few rules of thumb:
Pupils should be near the center of the lens
Lenses shouldn’t extend past the side of your face
Eyebrows should not be inside the glasses
When you smile, your cheeks don’t push the frames up
Frames shouldn’t slide down your nose
If you find a frame you love but it doesn’t fit quite right, the below issues can be adjusted:
If the frames are too tight or loose behind your ears
The temples are too long or too short
The temples are too tight or loose at the side of your face
The frames are crooked or slide down your face
Where can I find my frame’s measurements? All of our frames and goggles (and most glasses from other brands) have a few numbers printed on the inside of the frame. These refer to the lens width, bridge width, and temple arm length of your frames (goggles won't include a temple arm length, obviously). On each product page, the frame measurements are listed as product options (along with color). We recommend comparing the measurements of your current glasses to the frame measurements on our website; this will give you an idea of how a pair will fit you.
