Also, contact lens and eyeglasses prescription could be different, if you unsure just head over to our store for checking. Besides prescription, you will also want to make sure your eyewear measurements on-hand. It is best if you can check your existing pair of eyeglasses or sunglasses. You should read the measurements that are listed at the side arm of the eyeglasses. The measurements should be listed in order of lens width, bridge width, and arm length. If you are unsure on the reading, you can always grab a ruler to measure your glasses (in millimetres).
