Diagram of Glasses Parts and Descriptions


Eyeglasses and Sunglasses are completely different types of products, although the names of all the parts are exactly the same. In this section we will explain what each part does so you have a better understanding of how glasses come together.
Glasses Parts

Eye Wires/Rims/Frame Front


Front part of the glasses frame that accomidates the lenses ,bridge and temples.

Temples


The temples are the long sides of the glasses which generally rest on top of the ear holding the item centered on your face. The temple is not exactly the same on each pair of glasses. There are many types of temples.
    Skull Temple
  • Skull temples are the typically the most popular for plastic frames. The Skull temple is bent down with a slight angle over your ear and will follow the outline of the skull.
  • Comfort Cable Temple
  • Comfort Cable temples are temples that hook behind the ear with a adjustable metal wire
  • Riding Bow temples
  • Riding Bow temples are very much alike to comfort-cables, except they are stiff and are plastic.
  • Spring Hinge Temples
  • Spring Hinge Temples contain concealed flexible springs inside the hinges and help control the frames movement. These types of temples are usually pricey, but essentially more resistant to damage.

Temple Tips


Temple Tips are the plastic coating that is sometimes removable that covers the end piece of the temple. It is designed to cushion the support of the temple on top of your ear.

Bridge


The bridge is the metallic or plastic area between the lenses that holds the weight of the glasses. Typically the bridge lays flat at back of the nose, but there are some people who enjoy wearing the glasses so that the bridge rests on the tip of the nose.
  • The keyhole bridge is formed like an antique keyhole and sits on the outer sides of the upper part of the nose. This style is best for individuals with small or flat-nose bridges.
  • The saddle bridge is formed like a horse saddle and covers the weight of the frame across the sides and the top of the nose. This style is best for heavy glasses or for those who are highly sensitive to direct pressure.
  • The adjustable bridge includes nose-pads that can be oriented for fit and ease.
  • The double bridge has a strengthened bar over the upper side of the bridge.

Top Bar


The Top bar over the bridge is a strong metallic stabilizer rod that is popular on many aviator frames. The top bar is strictly a design and serves no architectural purpose.

Hindges


The Hinge is the component of the glasses that connects the temples to the front of the frame. The Hinge is designed to allow the temples to swing.

Pad Arms


Pad arms are welded to the frame itself and hold the nose pads in place. The pad arms usually allow adjustments to itself by bending. Don't bend the pad arm too much, as they are fragile and can easily break.

Nose Pads


Nose pads are plastic objects that are attached directly to the pad arms. They assist in keeping the frame in its appropriate place. Nose pads come in a variety of colors and styles.

End Pieces


Extensions of the frame front where the temples are connected.
