So I'm getting a pair of Persols (the PO9714s) as prescription eyeglass with Transition X capable lenses. However I am having a bit of a tough decision on size. My actual eyeglass size is 53mm (in a completely different generic frame from another brand). When ordering the only options available were the 55 or 52 in the color I wanted. So....when I went to a local Sunglass Hut to try some on I only have seen the size 54 or something too small like a 50. As a result, I ordered the 55s but am currently second guessing myself.

Here's a pic of me with the 54mm.

Questions- With it in mind that these will be prescription eyeglasses (a very different impression than shades) that will transition in the sun.

1. Do these look too big and how much bigger do you think the 55s will be?
2. Would it be wiser to go for the 52 as they are just one size smaller?
3. Aesthetically speaking, how do they look? Do they fit my facial shape?
