When being fitted with eyeglass frames, it is important that your eyes are centered in the frame, particularly if you have a strong prescription. The better centered the eye is in the frame, the better you will see and the slimmer your lenses will be at their edges. It is also important for the temples to be long enough to avert unwanted tilting, which alters the way that you see through your glasses. In addition, a large bridge for a wide nose and a slender bridge (with nose pads, if necessary) for a narrower nose will ensure the proper fit. Frames that fit close to a larger nose will draw attention away from the nose and make it appear smaller. Eyeglasses are a customized product. The shape of eyeglass frames, the style of bridge, and how the frame sits on your face can affect how you see and minimize some facial features while enhancing others. When selecting frames that will hold progressive lenses, be sure that their minimum height requirement is met.
