Everyone has different needs when
choosing eyeglass frames. A proper fit and style that suits
you are two of the main objectives. Your face size and
shape, hair and eye color, and other factors will influence
this decision. Our trained staff will help you through this
process. Making the right decision regarding frame
selection will affect how your glasses look, whether or not
they’re comfortable, and how well you see with them.
If your frames fit properly, they will not pinch or move
around on your face. They should not rest on your cheeks,
touch your temples, or make contact with your brows. If any
of your normal facial expressions or movements shifts your
glasses or causes discomfort, they may not be appropriate
for you. Adjustments to the ear pieces, nose pieces, or
other parts of the frame may improve the fit.
The shape of your frames should work well with the shape of your
face. There are five main face shapes: oval, round,
rectangular, square and triangular. Our staff will work
with you to determine the best shape for your face.
Thickness of Frames and
Over the years, a great
deal of progress has been made in reducing the thickness and
magnifying appearance of lenses. Nevertheless, if you’re
placed in the wrong frames, strong prescription lenses may
produce some unnecessary effects.
If you’re farsighted, convex lenses may make your
eyes look magnified. Larger frames can bring your eyes back
into proportion with the rest of your face. If you are
nearsighted, the opposite is true and your lenses may make
your eyes look smaller than normal. Placed in larger frames
these lenses will increase this effect, whereas compact
frames will reduce it.
