We often talk about the fact that clothes aren’t made for bigger people, but what about everything else? If you have a “non-traditional” body, it can be difficult find shoes, hats and other accessories that fit. Eyewear is no exception. We’ve written extensively about glasses for big heads, and while they solve the problem for a lot of people, there are other issues that can crop up, such as sliding or pinching. That’s where Topology Eyewear and their custom made glasses come in.
How Topology Works
Topology offers eyeglasses and sunglasses that are made from scratch to your exact dimensions. Simply download their iOS app (android coming soon, according to their FAQ) and use it to scan your face, capturing over 2000 3D measurements. This ensures that the depth, width and precise location is custom fit for your head. The scanning process is simple: when the app tells you to turn your head to the left or right, do that. The directions are straightforward and easy to follow.
The Perfect Glasses, Designed By You
The Topology Eyewear experience gets even better after the scan. YOU get to design the glasses you want to buy. Select acetate or metal frames, choose your color(s), then fine-tune the shape. There’s a virtual try-on feature built into the app so you can see exactly how the frames you created will look on your head.
There are more than 10 frames to choose from and thousands of combinations that allow you to create glasses that are unique to you.
So, How Does Topology Eyewear Fit?
As you can see, I created a pair of Topology Eyeglasses for myself. The frame I’m wearing in these photos is called the Valencia, and though the frames look like a two-tone brown, the top tone is actually blue. I’m impressed with the width and fit of my glasses, as they don’t pinch or slide, a problem I frequently run into. The quality construction is evident – you can just feel it when you take them out of the case.
Don’t worry, Topology offers a complete, unconditional no questions asked 100% refund policy.
