Spectacle Frame Alignment

A comfortable fitting spectacle frame defines ultimate customer satisfaction. The process starts with selecting a frame with adequate dimensions, which will allow manipulation and adjustments, once the lenses have been fitted. Nobody’s head or face is exactly symmetrical, and each individual has unique features, which will impact on how a spectacle frame sits on the face. Ears are usually not positioned exactly at the same height. One ear may be higher or lower than the other. The bridge of the nose may be relatively high or low in relation to the eyes. A head may require very long temples (side pieces) or very short ones. The position of the ear, where the temple sits in relation to the place where the frame sits on the nose, can hugely influence the fit and optics of spectacles. It’s very important that the optical dispenser takes note of all these features and selects a frame that can be fitted to overcome them.
