VISION CARE

Choosing your frames

There are four main things to consider when you pick out your glasses.

Comfort

When you first put on a pair of glasses, it should feel comfortable.

  • The eyes are centered in the frames.
  • The frames are not sitting on your checks when you smile.
  • The frames are not pinching the side of your head.
  • Your eyelashes are not touching the lenses in the frames.
  • The frames sit comfortable on your face and nose bridge.

Color

Before deciding what frame color will work best with your eye color, ask yourself whether you want to stand out, or blend in.

  • Lean toward frames that contrast with the tone of your face or hair.
  • People with white or blonde hair should try a darker shade
  • People with dark hair should try a slightly lighter shade than their hair color.

Face Shape

The old rule—the frames of your glasses should contrast with the shape of your face—is still valid.

  • Round face should try an angular frame.
  • Long narrow face should try a circular frame.
  • Oval face should try a circular or square-off frame.

Lifestyle

Glasses can now be made to fit all your hobbies, sports, and special needs. These days the glasses are made to adapt to your lifestyle needs versus the other way around, where you have to adapt to the glasses.
