Choosing the Right Glasses

Right Glasses

If you are going to wear eyeglasses to correct your vision, picking them out can be the most difficult part. What constitutes the right pair for you? There are a few ways that you can make the decision easier and choose just the right frames. When you need new eyeglasses, you may need an eye exam from an eye doctor. To schedule your exam to get a fresh prescription, call our optometry center in Glendale, AZ. We at Family Eyecare of Glendale are here to help.

Choosing a Color

One way that you can narrow down the many frames available is to figure out which color will work best for you. Try frames of a few different colors and hold them up to your hair and skin so that you can see whether the colors clash. If they go well together, you can add that color to your list of possible frames. This allows you to eliminate many colors that don't do anything for you and your coloring.

Choosing a Shape

When you're choosing your new frames, it's important to be aware of the shape of the frames as well as the shape of your face. The way that the two shapes interact can greatly change the look of your face. An oval is considered to be the ideal face shape, and the frames you pick should make your face look more like that shape. If you have a rectangular face shape, for instance, you might try round frames to make the face look less angular. Try a few shapes and see what each does for your face. You can then eliminate the shapes that don't interact well with your face's shape. Once you have narrowed down both the shape and the color of the frames that will work best, it's much easier to find the ideal pair.
