First, find Tough Reading Glasses
your present prescription. I keep mine in the health file in my filing cabinet. If you cannot find your prescription, visit wherever you earlier had your eyes examined and demand a backup. Your optician, optometrist, or ophthalmologist is required by law to release your eyewear prescription to you. You now need to be aware of a few critical pieces of information from your prescription (see example above–click to enlarge). Among other information, you should see three columns on your prescription–sphere, cylinder, and axis.
In addition to these six volumes, there is one more critical number, the Pupillary Distance, or PD. That is a solution, in millimeters, of the space between your eyes. Tough Reading Glasses
In the example prescription above, you’ll see the Pupillary Distance of the patient is 62. Jot down this number also, it is the seventh of your seven critical volumes.
A slightly less critical number is your temple span. If you’re blessed, you’ll also see a temple length and bridge size in your prescription. If not, don’t sweating it, you can body it out yourself. The temple length describes the space of the two bars that connect the eyeglasses to your ears. It is measured from where the 90-level curve from your zoom lens structure to the side bars (temples) starts to the end of the temple, including the curve. It isn’t measured from the flex point of the temples, because the “stub” between your flex point and lens structure is not a standard size.

Now, take out some measuring tape (preferably the type of tape used for fitted clothes and sewing, as it is very flexible) and evaluate an existing couple of spectacles that fit pleasantly. The average temple size for men is 135mm or 145mm. For girls, 130mm to 140mm is standard. If the tape only has ins, measure to the nearest eighth or sixteenth and multiply that number by 25.4 to find the way of measuring in millimeters. Temple lengths are usually available in 5mm increments, such as 130, 135, 140, 145, etc. For the most part online eye glasses stores, temple period is shown within the frame description and is not customizable. Therefore, you will need to find a frame with an appropriate temple size. This sometimes varies if you are at a site specializing in designer spectacles, where you have the option to type your own temple size.
Seriously, temple size is not a huge deal. I have one couple of eyeglasses with 135mm temples and another with 140mm temples. Both pairs fit easily. If for reasons uknown you can’t think of a temple measurement, don’t let that stop you from making an eyewear purchase online. Instead, simply choose 140mm temples if you are a man and 135mm temples if you are a woman. It’s likely that, this span will fit perfectly.
