How do you choose the right Ray-Ban lens size?

First, get your credit card. Looking in a mirror, hold the card vertically in front of your face. Put one long edge down the middle of your nose and notice where the other edge meets your face. If the edge lines up with the outside of your eye, choose the Standard size. If it covers a significant amount of space past your eye, choose Small. If the card doesn’t even reach the outer edge of your eye, you need the Large lens.
