Asian Fit Glasses are optical frames that are designed specifically for a face shape with a lower nose bridge, higher cheekbones and a wider face. They are not a frame of glasses reserved solely for Asians, but for anyone with a low nose bridge.
For people with this king of face shape, this type of glasses frame will be far more comfortable. The frame design reduces pressure on the cheekbones and temples, and modified nose pads prevent the glasses from slipping. To accomplish this, Asian fit glasses frames will usually feature thicker or adjustable nose pads, a wider and flatter frame, a narrower yet more prominent nose bridge, and smaller lenses. The combination of the last two features ensures that the glasses sit higher up on the face, without resting on the cheeks.
Are your cheekbones high up on your face?
Do you have a low nose bridge?
Is your face width the same as your face length?
To find out, take a ruler and measure ear to ear, then forehead to chin. If the lengths are the same, Asian fit glasses are for you.
Issues with standard glasses frames:
Do your glasses often slide down your nose?
Do your glasses frames rest on your cheeks? This can sometimes lead to cheek rash.
When you laugh or smile, do your glasses shift position or move around?
Do the lenses brush against your eyelashes?
Do the frame arms put pressure on your temples?
Do you find that your lenses often steam up?
If you answer yes to most of these questions, it is well worth trialing a pair of Asian fit glasses frames. It is incredibly important that your glasses fit correctly. If the Asian fit prescription glasses do not sit properly on your face, the clarity of vision provided by your prescription lenses will be compromised. Awkwardly placed glasses can also lead to headaches and dizziness. One way to help avoid headaches is to add blue light filters to the lenses.
First and foremost, your pupils should align with the centre of the optical lens. Knowing your pupillary distance can help ensure you get this right. See here to learn how to measure it.
Secondly, the frames should not rise higher than your eyebrows.
In addition, the frame width should be equal to the width of your face. This should create a balanced image. For further tips on how glasses should fit, see our size guide here.
The next thing to check, is how the weight is distributed on the bridge of your nose. The glasses should feel balanced, with the weight evenly distributed through the nose pads. If you feel the nose pads digging in at all, you may need to have them readjusted, or consider purchasing frames with a wider bridge.
Finally, you should be able to shake your head lightly without the glasses flying off your face. The temple arms should reach smoothly over your ears, and not press inwards on your temples or head. Remember to trial looking down to check for a secure fit, without the glasses sliding off.
