Based on our experience, the most important parameter for choosing the right frame size for your corrective glasses is GLASS WIDTH. Sunglasses can be freely choosen based on your personal preferences.
On many frame temples there are small numbers and a little square. Glass width is the number before the square. Why this parameter is the most important? Because the others are proportionally adjusted based on glass width.
It's important to choose the correct glass width. Well fitting corrective glasses provide better quality, but also add accent to your look and make your face look differently. The correct frame can nicely model your face - widen it or slim. But it's also very important to choose the right frame shape. Rectangular or square frames with thin borders will fit oval and circle faces. Rectangular faces will look nicely with oval or a little inclined shapes, so called cats eyes. Lengthy (oval) faces will look effective in rectangular and transversal frames, optically shortening your face. Circle or longitudinal-oval frames will fit triangular faces.

When you choose corrective frames, it's also important to check BRIDGE WIDTH - the space between glasses. It's usually within 12mm to 26mm. If you know your bridge width, it's best to choose frames with bridge width within +/- 1mm. On the picture below, the best bridge width would be between 15-17mm.
