You find yourself pushing your glasses back up your nose. It seems they slip down your face and rest on your cheeks. That’s not ideal. So, what’s the deal?
One size does not fit all.
Perhaps you’re of Asian descent—as is the majority of the world’s population. If not, you could simply have facial features like Asian people often do.
“Asian individuals tend to have more of a flatter face with the cheek bones very projected compared to the typical European.”
Mark Hubbe, assistant professor of anthropology at Ohio State University
Eyewear manufacturers have responded with a solution, which they most often call “Asian fit.” Other names have also surfaced to describe the solution:
- Alternative fit
- Low bridge fit
- Omni fit
