E Try-on™ Guide


E Try-on™ helps you find a glasses frame that fits by virtually trying them online. It accurately sizes the glasses to your face so that you can visually see the image of yourself wearing the glasses as if you are trying on glasses in front of a mirror.

Portrait Photo
Use the correct photo is the key for E Try-on™. The photo should be a passport style photo taken straight on eye level showing your full face and head with your eyes looking directly at the camera, without glasses. The photo should not show you looking over one shoulder or with head tilted.
Dont have a passport photo? You can take a photo with a webcam or use a normal photo with the face occupying a large proportion of the photo.

Image Requirement if Upload a Photo
If you are to upload a photo, the photo should be in JPG, JPEG or PNG format. Please do not compress the file.

The width and height should be at least 500 pixels but no more than 2800 pixels. The file size should not be more than 600KB.

Select a Portrait Photo
To select a photo, Click on the "Try On My Photo" button above the model on the
E Try-on™ page. You will need to provide an email address to store your portrait photo.  Please follow the prompt to upload a photo or take a photo with webcam. You will then be brought to Configure Photo page.

Configure Photo
You can now configure your face photo to get ready for E Try-on™. Please follow the 3 steps on the page to adjust the face photo.

It's important that the PD has been entered before you start adjusting the photo. Then click, drag and drop the white circles labeled R.E. and L.E. onto the pupils of your eyes. To start it over, click on the "Restart" button. If you have changed your PD since you last time adjusted your face photo , you will need to reconfigure your face photo before trying-on glasses again. 

The adjusted photo should look somehow different from the original photo. The adjusted photo should be centered. In most cases it should be the magnified image of the original. If you need help in adjusting your face photo, please contact us with your login email address. Our staff memeber will be able to adjust your photo and upload it for you.

PD (Pupillary Distance)
PD is the distance between the centre of two pupils when your eyes are looking at a distance object in the front that are 60 centimetres away or beyond. It is measured in millimetres (mm). Accurate PD is required in order to scale the glasses correctly. PD is also used for cutting the lenses if you decide to fit prescription lenses with your glasses. Please make sure to enter a correct PD.

The average PD is 60mm for women and 64mm for men.
P.D.

If there is no PD value in your prescription, please remember to ask your optometrist to measure the PD for you next time when you visit the optometrist. Meanwhile you can have your PD measured with a ruler and the help of a friend by following this instruction:

  1. Put the millimetre ruler on the bridge of your nose.
  2. Ask someone to stand approximately 60 centimetres away from you and measure the distance between the centres of your pupils (the black circle in your eyes) with your eyes looking at a distance object in the front.
  3. Repeat a few times until a consistent result is obtained.
  4. You can measure pupillary distance yourself by using a mirror. You will stand at least 30 centimetres away from the mirror, place a ruler in front of your eyes and measure the distance between your pupils with your eyes looking at yourself in the mirror. Repeat a few times until a consistent result is obtained.
We recommend you always ask your optometrist to measure the PD for you. Only measure the PD yourself as a last resort. It is important to get your PD from your optometrist if your prescription has high power or if you are going to order bifocal, progressive or computer lenses.

E Try-on™ glasses
On E Try-on™ page, you can now search on glasses and try on glasses by clicking on the small glasses image. You can add glasses to My Favourites for later review or remove glasses from My Favourites. When you click on the small glasses image, the glasses will be sized correctly to your face. Click on the "Buy Now" button if you are happy with the frame.
