GETTING THE RIGHT FIT

I

f your eyeglasses do not fit
well, they can be more of a
distraction than a help. With
this in mind, you know you
have a problem when the arms
(temples) of your glasses pinch
the back of your ears. If the
temples are too short, they will
not rest comfortably behind
the ears. If they pinch but are
the correct length, they can be
adjusted. Another sign of trouble
is indentations left on the bridge
of your nose by nose pads that
fit too tightly. While the nose
pads on metal frames may be
adjustable, those on plastic
frames are difficult to alter.
You
can
eliminate
these
problems by selecting glasses
with the appropriate bridge size
at the start.

W

hen you’re being fitted
with eyeglass frames, it is
important that your eyes are
centered in the frame. When
selecting frames that will hold
progressive lenses, be sure that
their minimum height requirement
is met. Please call REGIONAL EYE

P

.S. Eyeglasses that continually
slip may be due to the weight
of the glasses or incorrect temple
or bridge size.
