How to Choose the Right Eyeglass Frames for Your Face Shape
Some people do not like shopping for new eyeglasses. They may think there aren’t styles for their particular head shape, or may be that regular eyeglass frames just don’t fit them well.
Some people just can’t get used to how they look in eyeglasses.
But that’s not the case. Everyone can find a pair of glasses that fit them just right and look great.
- Here’s an article that shows various female face shapes and what looks best on them.
- Here’s an article on what type of frames best fit different shapes of men’s faces.
“Glasses not only need to fit correctly, but also should complement and reflect your style,” notes the Optical Department page at GlobalEyeandLaser.com.
“No two eyes are the same; nonetheless the lifestyle between any two people and that is why at Global Laser Vision we consider many factors beyond the traditional measurements to find your proper eyewear.”
The Vision Council says you should consider three main points when choosing an eyeglass frame for your face shape:
- Eyewear should repeat your personal best feature (such as a blue frame to match blue eyes).
- The frame shape should contrast with your face shape.
- The frame size should be in scale with your face size.
The Vision Council notes that, while most faces are a combination of shapes and angles, there are seven basic face shapes: round, oval, oblong, base-down triangle, base-up triangle, diamond and square.
Or in simple terms – round, oval, square and heart-shaped.
A good optometrist will not only tell you your lens power; he or she will also guide you towards frames that work with your personal look. On the flip side, a good optometrist – or his or her staff – should also steer you away from making a poor choice.
Just because your best friend has cool-looking designer frames doesn’t mean you too will look good in them. A pair of new eyeglasses is an investment in better vision. It’s also your way of alerting the world to your personal style.
Keep in mind: Your lifestyle determines your eyeglass needs.
A child’s eyeglass needs are different from those of an athlete or a business person.
