Focals show you the display by shining a small light in your eye at exactly the right point. Wearing the right size and having the right fit is absolutely crucial to seeing the display and using Focals. To see if Focals are for you, you’ll need to schedule a sizing appointment online or in one of our North Showrooms before you can take home your own Focals glasses.
Your sizing appointment includes a 3D Scan, where a combination of cameras and software builds a detailed 3D model of your face and ears. With this information, your Fit Specialist will recommend Focals for you and send your measurements to our manufacturing facility.
A note on fit
There are hundreds of size combinations available for Focals, but it’s possible that we won’t have a size that will let you see the display the way it was designed..
What to expect
Our Showrooms have all of the resources needed to make your sizing appointment a comfortable one, but if you want a head start, here’s how you can prepare:
- If you normally wear prescription glasses, it's a good idea to wear contact lenses if you have them. The 3D Scan uses visual guides to help you position yourself correctly. Wearing your contact lenses will make sure you can see the visual guides with ease.
- The 3D Scan during your sizing appointment is highly accurate. So accurate, that sometimes hair will impact your fit results. If you have long hair or bangs, make sure it’s pulled back and away from your ears and eyes. If you notice fly-away strands, secure them with hair clips or a headband.
Missing a hair tie?
Our Showrooms have you covered. Your fit specialist will provide you with all of the hair accessories you’ll need to tame loose strands (and they’re yours to keep afterwards).
- We love to accessorize, but sometimes jewelry, coats, scarves, eyewear, and wearable tech can interfere with your measurements. Before you enter the sizing booth, it’s best that you remove these accessories before your scan begins.
If you have ear piercings that are difficult to remove, not to worry. Your Fit Specialist will tell you about our tracking band - an adjustable gadget used to better detect the key features of your ears.
- For religious wear, a Fit Specialist might ask you to move fabric that is covering your ears slightly so that the top curve of your ear is visible. Our Tracking Band will help with the rest of the feature detection - so no need to remove any religious clothing.
When the sizing process is complete, you’ll get to see Focals in action and select a glasses style that suits you best.
Focals are ordered to your measurements and specifications. When your Focals are ready for wear, schedule a fitting appointment for some final adjustments and a quick reintroduction.
