There are many websites that have 3D Virtual Tryon with maybe the brand of eye wear that you want to try on, if you are lucky. Or I am sure, you will find a similar size in some other brand. Just try MisterSpex, Grand Optical etc...
The physical product ( eye wear) is converted to a full 3D asset and it is really accurate and a good experience too.

Regarding lens measurements. That is a different ball game altogether. And I wouldn't do it online. Even if it is to determine just the PD ( Pupillary Distance) which is mandatory to fix any eye lens to the desired eye wear. Unfortunately, not many stores do this. Even at the physical location.

Also, if you are making prescription( your eye power) sunglasses on a sun glass frame. It requires other measurements like wrap angle.

To continue the rant-

Adding below the measurements that are required to accurately craft the lenses to the desired eye wear. And trust me, it will be a world of difference if your lenses are fit with these measurements to your chosen eye wear, Else, it will be the standard. Wear it, for a week or some days Sir, you will get used to it.
Seriously, why should you? When the below measurements were obtained and then your lenses fixed in the way it is supposed to be fixed.

1. Pupillary Distance- Far Vision and Near Vision. The distance from the center of both pupils. ( AN ABSOLUTE MUST FOR EVERY LENSES)
2. Fitting Height (Name says it all)
3. Frame Dimensions ( Size of the chosen eye wear)- A, B, DBL ( Distance Between Lenses)
4. Pantoscopic Tilt (The tilt of the eye wear after it rests on your nose)
5. Back Vertex Distance ( Distance from the outer most portion of your eye to the back surface of lenses)
6. Wrap Angle ( The curve of the eye wear) AN ABSOLUTE MUST IF YOU THINK THE EYE WEAR HAS MORE CURVE THAN STANDARD EYE WEAR)

It is a pretty long post. However, hope this will be useful for someone out there.

Beautiful glasses.
Guess i paid higher in spite of discounts but then I couldn't source them earlier unlike MJ which I got from my friendly local opticals shop
