Frequently Asked Questions
Frame Fit & Care
What should I do if my eyebobs sit crooked on my face or slide down my nose?
A qualified optician can adjust your eyebobs for a personalized fit. Having your glasses adjusted is like having a suit tailored; it is best done in person for a custom fit. (Trust us, you will look totally hot after!) Most optical stores will do adjustments at no charge if you ask nicely or offer them candy.
How do I care for my eyebobs?
Responsible bob owners can read more on care and feeding here.
Do the frames come in different sizes?
No, the frames come in one size per style. Some styles are wider or more narrow than others.
Do you offer frame personalization?
No, we do not offer frame personalization.
Can I order frames without lenses?
No, we do not offer frames without lenses.
My frame is out of stock. Can you notify me when it's back in stock?
Yes, simply sign-up for an email notification on the product detail page. We will reach out as soon as your frame is back in stock.
How do I know if a frame fits me?
Here are a few rules of thumb to determine whether a frame fits:
- Pupils should be near the center of the lens. Lenses shouldn’t extend past the side of your face.
- Eyebrows should not be inside the glasses.
- When you smile, your cheeks shouldn’t push the frames up.
- Frames shouldn’t slide down your nose.
- Frames shouldn’t feel too tight or loose behind your ears.
- The temples are not too long or too short.
- The temples are not too tight or too loose at the side of your face.
- The frames shouldn’t be crooked or slide down your face.
- An optical adjustment can go a long way in correcting minor fit issues. If you find a frame you love but it doesn’t fit quite right, consider an adjustment.
Where can I find my frame’s measurements?
Optical measurements of the frames can be found on the inside temple along with the frame name and color numbers.
What kind of materials do you use in your eyebobs?
Italian block acetate (zyl): This is the type of material we use to make nearly all of our frames. Acetate is the same material used to make most high-end designer frames. The color and quality are unmatched. This is the good stuff, people!
Bamboo: eyebobs bamboo reading glasses are a chic and eco-friendly option. The temples are hand carved from sustainable bamboo. Because bamboo is a natural material, the temples cannot be adjusted like our other frames. We’ve given them a bit of curve for a more comfortable fit, so adjustments shouldn’t be necessary. Remember: every time a bamboo temple breaks a panda cries. Think of the pandas!
Ultem: This collection is the ultimate blend of fashion and function. Featuring a sleek stainless steel front with adjustable nosepads, and light-weight, flexible nylon temples for added comfort and durability. This collection is a whole new look and feel!
Flocked Finish: This collection will flock your socks off! Frames with brilliantly colored flocked fronts and lightweight nylon temples are crazy comfortable and seriously stylish. They’re bound to give you a case of the warm fuzzies.
Carbon: Part of eyebobs Swank Collection. An acetate front is paired with temples made from carbon fiber – the same material used in cars, cycles and all things designed for speed! Carbon fiber creates a frame so sleek, lightweight and durable, you won’t want to take them off.
Wood: It’s all about the layers! Another hit from eyebobs Swank Collection, stunning wood in rich colors is layered with aluminum to create a frame that’s lightweight, durable and a snap to clean and maintain. It’s the total package!

Reading Glasses and More
How do I figure out my ideal magnification?
If you’re not sure what strength is best, our handy test can help you figure it out. Please note: while it’s a great way to help determine a strength that will work for your needs, this test is no substitute for the recommendation of your eye care professional.
Can you replace the lenses in my eyebobs with a different magnification?
We can outfit your bobs with new lenses. Bear in mind, reading glasses go through A LOT of wear and tear with daily use. New lenses may not be the wisest investment. If you think your frames are in tip-top shape, you have two options: consult with your optical about cutting new lenses or send them in to us. Visit our repairs page for information on how to send them in.
I need a +1.50 in my right eye and a +2.00 in my left. Can I still order eyebobs?
Well we don’t usually do this, but since you are so nice……we can create pair of eyebobs for you with two different magnifications. There is an additional charge to do, so if you have some frames you are considering please call us for a quote. One thing to note, these custom creations are not eligible for return or exchange. Bob’s loving hand made these especially for you, and with you is where they want to stay.
