How to Choose the Right Eyewear for Your Face and Lifestyle
When it comes to choosing the right eyewear, there are some deciding factors you can take into consideration:
The Shape of Your Face
While you at liberty to choose whatever designer and fashionable frames suit your personality, you may want to consider your face shape when choosing a style:
- Round: Square or rectangular frames can make your face appear slimmer and longer.
- Oval: Look for a strong bridge and frames that are wider than the broadest part of your face.
- Square: Look for frames that are angular and sit high on the bridge of your nose. Oval or round eyeglasses will nicely balance a square face.
- Diamond: Frames that sweep up or are wider at the cheekbones accentuate diamond-shaped faces.
- Heart: Look for frames that sit low on your temples with bottom-heavy frame lines to add width to the narrower part of your face.
Again, these are simply suggestions but can help you choose the right eyewear from all of the amazing styles available!
Your day-to-day activities can help you better decide what style of eyewear will best accommodate your lifestyle.
For instance, if you’re active, you’ll want to look for a flexible frame that can twist and bend without breaking. Or, if you spend a lot of time at work or play in front of a screen, you should consider blue light blocking glasses.
At The Eye Clinic, you will easily find a fashionable frame with the functionality to match your lifestyle!
The Right Lens
Choosing the right eyewear involves more than picking out the perfect frames. You’ll also want to make sure that you also have the right eyeglass lenses to suit your unique needs.
For example, you can choose an anti-reflective coating that helps to improve glare and night vision. You can also opt for thinner lenses such as polycarbonate or high-index plastic lenses – this helps to reduce the thick appearance of the lens and make your glasses more lightweight.
Other options include photochromic lenses that darken automatically as you step into the sunlight and bifocals/trifocals to provide clear vision at all distances.
The choices can be confusing, which is why our trained and knowledgeable optometrist is always available to help you make the best decision!
