The Ultimate Guide to Finding the Perfect Eyewear Fit for Your Unique Face

You've probably been wearing eyeglasses and sunglasses for years, but have you ever considered that it might not be your nose causing discomfort, but rather your eyewear? At Tribal Eyes, we're all about empowering our tribe with knowledge, and today, we're here to shed some light on how to shop for eyewear that fits your nose, nasal bridge, and cheekbones like a glove. Understanding these aspects can make a world of difference in your eyewear comfort and style. So, let's dive into the world of nasal fits and find the perfect pair for you.

1. Nasal Bridge Diameter: The Foundation of Fit

If you've ever wondered about those three numbers inside your eyeglasses or sunglasses, we're about to unravel the mystery. Among these numbers, the middle one holds the key to your nasal bridge fit. Let's take a closer look at the example of our Amber sunglasses: 74-18-150. The crucial number here is 18mm, which represents the nasal bridge diameter. This measurement plays a pivotal role in ensuring your eyewear fits comfortably on your face. Keep in mind that all eyepieces come with these three numbers: lens width (74mm), nasal bridge diameter (18mm), and temple length (150mm).

We've conducted extensive research and found that when you get your nasal bridge fit right, everything else about your eyewear seems to fall into place. Nasal bridge diameters can vary, ranging from 14mm to 31mm, and here's what you need to know about them:

- Less than 16mm: Narrow Nasal Bridge Diameter
- 16-17mm: Medium Nasal Bridge Diameter
- 18mm or more: Wide Nasal Bridge Diameter

2. Nose Bridge Height: The Vertical Connection

Now that we've covered the diameter, let's talk about the height of your nose bridge. This aspect can significantly impact how your eyewear sits on your face. Understanding the height of your nose bridge is vital for a comfortable fit. There are three primary categories:

- High: Close to the eyes
- Medium: Midway between the eyes and cheekbones
- Low: Close to the cheekbones

3. Cheekbone Height: Framing Your Look

Lastly, let's explore the height of your cheekbones. This dimension is often overlooked, but it can greatly affect how your eyewear complements your facial features. Here are the cheekbone height categories:

- High: Close to the top of the nose
- Medium: Midway between the top of the nose and the tip
- Low: Close to the tip of the nose

Conclusion: Find Your Perfect Fit

These guidelines are not arbitrary; they're backed by documented peer-reviewed research and insights from our valued customers. To truly find the ideal fit for your nose, nasal bridge, and cheekbones, we recommend personalized try-ons. Visiting our Atlanta store or attending our pop-up events can provide you with the hands-on experience you need to make the right choice.

Remember, your eyewear should not only enhance your vision but also reflect your unique style. By understanding these crucial aspects of fit, you're well on your way to finding eyewear that not only feels great but looks fantastic too.
