Your choice of glasses frame is a stylistic one but there are a few hard and fast rules to make your choice that much easier. There are a few options you can use to screen out unwanted frames some factors to bear in mind as you make your selection. With this in mind let’s look at a few tips to help you make the best choice for you.
If the frame you choose allows you to see around it, choose a different one. A good frame will hold the lens close to your eye, so you cannot see anything around the frame. Frames which fail to do this will lessen your vision and make it harder to focus on objects. Once you have chosen a frame which covers your entire field of vision, you probably will forget you are wearing them.
Your Facial Shape
Facial shape will influence your choice of frame. Small, dainty features normally work best with curved frames, while a more masculine jaw line is more suited to chunkier, rectangular frame. The trick is to choose a design which draws attention to your eyes and does not hide your cheekbones or eye brows.
Choosing glasses for some of you will be a fashion statement. You go for big colourful lenses as they suit your overall look and personality. In this case you want a bright coloured frame which is there to make a statement.
For others, you want a frame which compliments your natural skin tone, and so becomes part of your face rather than make a bold statement. We cater for both.
The frame of your spectacles will be influenced to some degree by your prescription strength. The thicker lenses will not really be supported by thinner frames and can look out of place. This is one of the reasons we carry plenty of product choice where frames are concerned. You can never have too many options when choosing the right frame.
Ensure your Spectacle Frames are Comfortable
Above all ensure your frames are comfortable. Even if you only wear your glasses for reading, you should ensure they not only fit well but are also comfortable to wear. Ideally, you should put your glasses on and forget about them. You want them to become part of you.
A Quick Note on Children’s Spectacles
As with clothes and shoes, children grow frighteningly fast and often outgrow their glasses. When this happens they should be replaced to ensure your son or daughter can see correctly and their glasses are comfortable to wear.
