Choosing the Right Glasses for Your New Prescription

Is it time to be examined for new eyeglasses? University Eye Associates in Charlotte, Rocky River, and Davidson want to help you find the right glasses for your new prescription. There are different factors that play a role in the best and most flattering eyeglass frames for you, including your face shape, lifestyle, and personality. Also, make sure that your new glasses fit well; your eyes should fall in the center of each lens. A comfortable fit for your ears and temples are important as well.

Choosing the Right Glasses for your Face 

Don’t pick frames that replicate the shape of your face, for instance, round-faced individuals should veer away from round-shaped frames. Oval faces can wear almost any shape in a flattering way, and square faces should steer clear of boxy, thick frames.

Choosing the Right Glasses for your Skin-tone 

Choose frame and lenses that complement the color of your skin and your complexion. For instance, pale skin and thick, black frames may not complement your face as well as a pair of translucent frames may. Furthermore, choose colors that match your eyes to help make them pop!

Choosing the Right Glasses for your Lifestyle 

Are you active? Choose frames that will provide some flexibility when playing sports or if they are dropped. Ask your optometrist about glasses that are intended for active lifestyles, industrial workplaces, and styles with safety features.

If you are unsure how your new glasses will flatter your face, try taking a couple of selfie photos so that you can check them out and evaluate them later. It may also help to take an honest and trusted person to your appointment with you for advice, before committing to a particular pair of frames.
