Glasses for Large Heads


Glasses for large heads can be more limited in range compared to the more common head sizes. However, you don’t need to feel like there is nothing out there for you and neither do you always need glasses custom made for your face. Here at in Northolt, North West London we stock large/oversized eye glasses suited to those o the large end of the spectrum.

What size glasses should I get if I have a big head?

Larger sized glasses need to have a eye size of 54 and above to sit comfortably on your head. This is an approximate figure as your face shape includes variations in nose width and eye to ear length. This means that you aught to be properly measured up to determine the best fitting glasses frame for you. The last thing you will enjoy is a pair of glasses that sit with the right width on your face but keep slipping down because the side length is not long enough for your head size. It is important for a frame expert to make sure the side length is good for you and the end s can be adjusted. Not all end can be adjusted easily as it depends n the material used to make them.
