The name of the parts of glasses
A. Front
The length from the left screw to right screw
B. Temple/Arm
The arms of the glasses. Because the contacting area to face is large, the modification of shape, endurance and flexibility are very important. Many brands put the focus of design at this part. Moreover, functional arms made by using super elastic materials are increasing.
C. Bridge
The joining part of left and right rims. "Hitoyama" is the improved shape for stable fitting even without nose pads. As the center part, sometimes metal-carving is applied for design purposes.
D. Pad [consumption articles]
Clipping the nose for fixing the glasses. For the metal frames, the independent part can be adjusted for fitting. Uses soft materials such as plastic or silicon.
E. Rim (The edge of lens)
The frame around the lens. There is a ditch called "line of rim" for fixing the lens. The common type is a frame around the lens called "Full rim". Most of the shapes of lenses and rims are the same for the full-rim type, which are in oval-shape.

H. Hinge
The only movable part of the glasses. Many frames utilize a fine structure with spring hinge, slab and special materials for cushioning. Regular maintenance (per 3 months) is necessary for the hinge.
