Each frame page has details with different frame measurements, and an overall size for the frame. Generally speaking, frames with measurements similar to eyeglasses or sunglasses that you currently wear comfortably will fit very similarly.

Confused or unsure? Not to worry! One of our optical ninjas can help you find frames that will fit you based on your current glasses, your PD, and even your hat size and height. Or, consider our Test Ride program to try a few frames before you purchase in prescription!

"Asian Fit" (sometimes called "Global" or "Universal" fit) is largely only a difference in the way a frame or goggle fits on the nose. It is designed to better accommodate flatter nose bridges, higher cheek bones, or a combination of the two. In glasses, it’s often a thicker or more prominent nose pad. In some cases, the whole frame is redesigned, including a larger overall frame width. In goggles, this often means more substantial foam around the nose to prevent gaps between the goggle and the face. Check out our blog on Asian Fit Sunglasses or Asian Fit Goggles for more info!

[UPDATE: Our Test Ride program has been temporarily suspended due to supply chain complications amid the COVID-19 crisis. See more COVID-19 updates here.]

Once reinstated, SportRx’s Test Ride program is our at-home frame try-on program. With a Test Ride, you can choose a selection of frames to “try before you buy.” One of our opticians can help you put together a selection of frames that will be ideal for your prescription and activity needs, in a size that will work for you. We pay for shipping both ways!

Yes! When you order a Z87 safety frame with prescription lenses, we automatically manufacture the prescription lenses to safety-rated ANSI specifications. Your prescription lenses will also be etched “SP+” in the corner of the lens to designate the safety rating as required by ANSI.

ANSI-certified glasses are safety glasses that are approved under ANSI (American National Standards Institute) regulations. ANSI eyewear is classified and noted by the Z87 marking on the inside of the frame.
