FInd Your Fit

Buying your glasses online can be hard, we get it. Below we’ll walk you through some common measurements found on all glasses so that you can be confident that your new American Sun & Reader Co. frames fit perfectly.



There are three tiny numbers located on most, if not all, glasses.  In order, these numbers represent the lens width, bridge width, and temple length of the frame.  These numbers are measured in millimeters.  The below illustrations show how these are measured.


It’s important to understand the overall width of a frame.  Although this number is not printed on glasses, we’ve listed the overall frame width on each of our pages.  You’ll want to pick a frame that suits your face.  Having trouble making a decision?  When shopping our products you can filter by narrow, medium, and wide.  Really unsure of which frame to choose?  Use our contact form to get in touch and one of our in-house stylists can help point you in the right direction.


For some reason unbeknownst to us, lens height measurements are also not listed on the frames themselves.  Luckily, we’ve listed this number for you on our product pages.  This number might be important to you depending on your desired fit.  In our experience, an oversized frame can look great, but make sure the bottom doesn’t hit your cheekbones.
