Before we get into the individual measurements, there are a few key features to keep in mind when shopping for your Ray-Ban Aviator size. First and most importantly, Aviator sunglasses have adjustable nose pads. As we go through the measurements, you’ll notice that each Aviator has the same bridge size. Spoiler alert: it is a narrow 14mm. Even though this bridge measurement may sound alarmingly narrow, do not fear! The adjustable nose pad is the key to unlocking a perfectly custom fit. The bridge measurement is the narrowest distance between the lenses. However, this is not where the frame makes contact with your face. That, my friends, is the job of the adjustable nose pad. What this means for you, is a unique fit that is completely customizable.
Second, the Aviator has covered temple tips. Say goodbye to the days of uncomfortable fit and aggravating pressure points! The Aviator’s temple tips are easy to maneuver so you get a secure, yet flexible fit and all-day comfort.
With these easy adjustments you can make on your own, the way your Aviators fit are totally up to you. For more coverage you can adjust the nose pads to bring the frame closer to your face. If you want more of a fashionable, trendy look, you can adjust them to sit a bit further down your nose, away from your face. Now that we know the importance of the Aviator’s adjustable nose pads, and the benefit of covered temple tips, it’s time to get into those measurements!
The smallest of the three Ray-Ban Aviator sizes, say hello to the Aviator 55mm Eyesize! If you’re wondering how eyesize is determined, this measurement reflects the widest point on the lens. Due to the dramatic teardrop shape, this style can easily look too large when the correct size is not chosen. If you have delicate facial features or a small face, the Aviator 55 Eyesize is ideal. While the lenses provide excellent coverage, the Aviator 55mm is not overwhelming. This size works well on most women and men with small faces.
Aviator 55 Dimensions:
- SportRx Frame Width: 130mm
- Lens Width: 55mm
- Lens Height: 47mm
- Bridge: 14mm
- Temple Length: 135mm

The Aviator 58mm Eyesize is considered a “Standard” size by Ray-Ban. Typically, we see standard sizes when there are multiple sizing options. By labeling a specific size as “Standard,” this means that 90% of people select that size. A happy medium within the RB3025 Aviator sizes, the 58mm is an excellent place to start if you are new to the style.
Aviator 58 Dimensions:
- SportRx Frame Width: 136mm
- Lens Width: 58mm
- Lens Height: 50mm
- Bridge: 14mm
- Temple Length: 135mm

Big heads rejoice! Rounding out the Aviator sizes is the 62mm Eyesize. The largest of the three, the RB3025 62mm Eyesize is ideal for those who struggle with finding a frame that fits. If you feel that most sunglasses are too small, squeeze uncomfortably at your temples, or do not provide enough coverage, the RB3025 62mm is here to take care of all those issues. This is a very large frame. If you’re looking at the Aviator 62mm, chances are you’re very familiar with the fit concerns I just mentioned. If not, you’re probably better off in the 58!
A quick note on the Aviator 62mm Eyesize. There are two model numbers floating around this particular size: the RB3025 Aviator 62 Eyesize & the RB3026 Aviator II. After much research, I am here to clarify the confusion surrounding the two. A few minor differences to point out are that the RB3025 Aviator is available in three eye sizes while the RB3026 Aviator II is only available in one eyesize, 62mm. When comparing the RB3026 Aviator II to the RB3025 Aviator 62mm Eyesize, they are visually identical and have the same measurements. As far as color offerings, it seems that certain color combinations are only available in one model number and not the other. However, this could be due to confusion around the model numbers and the fact that they are often used interchangeably. Either way, if you determine the 62mm Eyesize to be the best size for you, I’d recommend looking at both model numbers to see all possible color combinations.
RB3025 Aviator 62 / RB3026 Aviator II Dimensions:
- SportRx Frame Width: 140mm
- Lens Width: 62mm
- Lens Height: 54mm
- Bridge: 14mm
- Temple Length: 140mm

Take a look at those bridge measurements! This goes to show how the bridge is a poor indicator of fit for this particular style.
