HOW DO I FIND THE FRAME SIZE OF MY RAY-BAN SUNGLASSES AND EYEGLASSES?

Ray-Ban is one of only a few sunglasses brands that offers a variety of lens sizes for select styles. Choosing the correct lens size is crucial to finding the best fit from the Ray-Bans you choose. While not all Ray-Ban sunglasses come in different sizes, all of them do have sizes that will fit differently.

 

This guide explains how to choose the correct size by measuring your eye distance or by looking at your current shades.*

 

*This guide is efficient for Ray-Ban Aviator sizes, Ray-Ban Wayfarer sizes, Ray-Ban Clubmaster sizes, and all Ray-Ban models.

Important note: for the majority of people, more than 90% of our customers, Standard Size is the correct one. It is very likely it will be the correct size for you too.

If this is your first pair of Ray-Bans, a rule of thumb to determine the correct size is described in this article.

FIND YOUR FIT:

#1 Take a credit card

This is the approximate width of a Standard size lens.

#2 Stand in front of a mirror

In front of a mirror or camera, place one edge of the credit card at the center of your nose.

Where does the other edge end?

#3 Note its position in relation to your eye

A If the edge of the card is in line the end of your eye, opt for a standard fit.
B If the card extends well beyond the end of your eye, opt for a small fit.
C If the credit card does not reach the end of your eye, opt for a large fit.


 

40-46mm: XS (X-Small – Junior sizes)

WHAT ARE THE NUMBERS ON MY EYEGLASSES AND SUNGLASSES FRAME?

If you have an old pair of Ray-Bans and you want to know the meaning of the numbers printed inside the temples, here you will find an explanation.

 

The measurements need not be exact - they change from model to model. The closer the measurements of your new glasses are to those of your old glasses, the more similar the new ones will look on your face.

TEMPLE

Often called the arm, this is the piece of the frame that extends over the ear to help hold the sunglasses in place. Most of Ray-Ban sunglasses and eyeglasses have the size measurement printed on the inside of the left temple. Usually, this consists of three numbers (though sometimes only the first two are printed) similar to this: 50 20 150.

The third number in the sequence represents the temple length. It is the measurement in millimeters of the 'arms' of the frame.

LENSES

The width of the lens is the first number in (50-20-150). The measurement of the whole front of the glasses includes the diameter of the lens and the width of the bridge measured in millimeters, which are usually separated by a small dash or rectangle (e.g.: 50 - 20).

The lens diameter is the width of the lens, measured from the bridge, and the width of the bridge is the distance between the lenses above the nose, as shown in the figure below. Sometimes, the vertical measurement of the lens and the length of the arms are also present.

BRIDGE

The bridge is the area that arches up over the nose between the lenses. It is designed to support the majority of the glasses’ weight. The bridge width is the second number in (50-20-150). Typical widths are 12-26 millimeters. The bridge measurement is the distance between the lenses.
