Choosing a new pair of eyeglasses is exciting, but it can also be a bit stressful. After all, your new eyeglasses don’t just improve your vision–they’re also a fashion accessory that impacts your appearance, so you want to choose a flattering option! In today’s post, your trusted optometrist shares tips on how to choose the best eyeglasses.
Like your clothing, you want to choose a pair of eyeglasses that reflects your personality and lifestyle. For example, if you have a quirky, playful sense of fashion and work in an artistic field, you’ll probably have much different preferences when it comes to eyeglasses than someone who works in a more conservative setting like a law firm.
If you lead an active lifestyle, you’ll probably want flexible, durable frames that won’t break easily due to impact. If you plan to wear your eyeglasses primarily when reading or working on the computer, you don’t need to be as concerned about the durability of the frames, which gives you more options.
What shape is your face? If you have a round face, try on frames with a square or rectangular shape as those will likely flatter you the most. If your face is more square-shaped, on the other hand, you’ll probably find that round frames look better. Your eye doctor can help you choose frames that flatter you.
You should also take your skin tone into account when choosing frames. For warm skin tones, brown- or gold-colored frames tend to be flattering. For those with light skin tones, colors like black, silver, mauve and gray may suit you better.
