Alternative Fit Glasses

Alternative Fit glasses (aka "Asian Fit glasses" or "Global Fit glasses") and Alternative Fit Sunglasses are designed for faces with a flatter nosebridge which is thinner at the top and then widens out towards the bottom, with higher cheekbones.  To accomodate this type of physiognomy, also known as  "Asian Fit" or "Global Fit" plastic eyewear frames are designed with specifically styled nosebridge, and slightly longer temples. Alternative Fit provides a more stable 3-Point fit relationship to reduce nasal and temple pressure.  The larger nose pads improve nose bridge contour and offer better lens centration.  With the consistent optical centration also comes less frame movement, and improved optical clarity.  The flatter base curve and wrap angle shortens the vertex distance and is helpful for high-minus prescriptions.
