Oversized Glasses Trends 2022/2023

Are large glasses in style?

Some people assume that wearing large reading glasses or prescription glasses in these frames is trendy, but they typically forget the importance of comfort. Although wearing oversized glasses may appear trendy, people with small faces should avoid wearing largerglasses since pupil displacement is more visible. If oversized glasses are not purchased in the appropriate size, they may have a face fit problem, whereby they do not fit correctly at the nose bridge and frequently fall off. As a result, they may itch, wrinkle, or press against our temples. Alternatively, they could sit on our cheeks and cause irritation.

How to know if my glasses are too big?

In both men and women, measuring the Pupillary Distance (the distance between the pupils of both eyes) is critical. The average PD for men is 64 mm, while it is 62 mm for women. We can buy oversized glasses freely if we keep a few things in mind: the glasses should not sit on our cheekbones.

  • It should only touch our brows, not cross them.
  • The size should be according to our face shape.

We should not wear these spectacles for an extended amount of time, especially if they are prescription frames.
