More and more, people are heading online to shop for eyeglasses. If you plan on shopping for your next pair of glasses this way, then you’ll need to know what size of frames are best for your face. In order to determine this, it’s important to perform a few basic measurements. The following tips will help you measure properly so that your new glasses fit well.
