About Cable Temple Conversions

Cable temple tips are a viable solution for the patient that is looking for a comfortable way to secure a set of eyeglasses to their face. Side arms that wrap behind the ear, also known as cable temples, are commonly recommended for active kids and adults. Another common recommended user are patients with severe prescriptions and/or glass lens wearers; Both these factors create a "front-heavy" set of eyeglasses. "Front-heavy" sets of eyeglasses tend to constantly slide down the patients nose due to basic gravitational pull.

All patients are unique in individual measurements. For best results, the frames desired to be converted to cable temple tips should be individually measured on each patient. If the patient cannot be measured, the patient can adjust the temple tip to a desired comfortable snug fit behind their ear. The lab technician will use that measurement to apply the temple tips resulting in the same comfortable snug fit. View images of our cable temple tip conversion (before/after).
