How to Choose the Right Eyeglasses

After your eye exam in Lumberton at EyeWorks Vision Center, you will be faced with the challenge of choosing between hundreds of frames for women’s glasses and men’s eyeglasses. The options are seemingly endless, so you’ll want to know how to get a solid start when choosing that perfect pair of frames. Of course, our eye care team will be right there to assist you, answer questions and offer you suggestions on how to perfectly frame your face. Meanwhile, here are tips concerning face shape and skin tone when considering your options.

Tips for Choosing the Best Men’s and Women’s Glasses for Your Face Shape

If you recall the phrase, ‘opposites attract,’ then you can consider that tidbit to be good advice when looking for eyeglass or sunglass frames. Choosing the right pair helps attractively frame your face, bringing symmetry and balance to your features. Here’s a quick guide on glasses for difference facial types.

Round Faces—Rectangular or square frames make balance out round faces by making it look longer and slimmer.

Oval Faces—Choose a frame with a strong bridge that’s wider than the broadest part of your face such as cat eye or rectangular shapes.

Square Faces—Soften the angular areas of your face with oval or round glasses that create balance and a thinner facial appearance overall.

Diamond Faces—If your forehead is narrow and sweeps inward towards the chin, try oval or cat eye frames to play up your cheekbones and other facial features.

Heart-Shaped Faces—Balance wide foreheads and a narrow chin with bottom heavy frames and low-set temples that add width to the narrowest part of the face. Square or round glasses with curved edges detract from oversized foreheads.

Women’s and Men’s Eyeglasses to Complement Your Skin Tone

Skin tone typically falls into three categories: fair, medium and dark. Lighter skin looks best with contrasting colors such as neutral hues like tortoise shell, black and brown. Medium tones can generally pull off most frame colors and even funky patterns and designs. Dark skin tones benefit from lighter colors such as gold’s, tans and whites. However, what really matters most is that you like the way your frames look and feel, so go with whatever pleases you.
