While we already shared 5 great tips for buying glasses for your children, here’s another pro tip - If you’re not sure of what size your child wears, you can check on a pair of glasses that fit. The eyeglass sizing numbers are usually written on the inside of the frames, like this: 49-19-135.
The first number indicates the distance across one lens of the glasses (eye size). The second number indicates the distance across the bridge on the eyeglass frame, or distance between lenses (bridge size). And the third number is the length of the arm piece from the front of the eyeglass frame to the end of the temple, which goes behind the ear (temple size).
We do hope this simplifies your back-to school shopping, and don’t hesitate to shoot us a message if you have any questions!
