The Shape of Your Face

You should look for frames that adds balance to your face, accentuating your good features. For example, if you have more of a square-shaped face, you’ll probably find that round frames look best on you, while people with a more rounded face might look better in rectangular frames.

Your Eye, Hair, and Skin Color

Your eyeglasses can serve as a fun fashion accessory that reflects your personality. To find the pair that looks best, our eye doctor suggests considering your skin color first. Whites, browns, and other neutral hues will look best on people with a relatively warm skin tone, while jewel-toned frames tend to look best on people with cooler complexions. If you want to emphasize the natural color of your eyes, choose frames within the same shade. For a striking appeal, select frames in a shade that contrasts with your hair.

Character and Lifestyle

During your eye exam, we will ask about the nature of your work and hobbies. Since you will be wearing your glasses every day, you want a pair that suits your lifestyle. If you frequently engage in sports and other physical activities, for example, we may suggest selecting wrap-around frames for better visual protection. We also have unique frame shapes and designs, which tend to be favorites for people with more artistic personalities.
