Choosing The Right Eye Glasses

Eye Wear Unlimited Glasses Leave a comment  
Choosing the most fitting and flattering eye glasses can be tough. Some people might even try on every single pair of eye glasses in the store, and still might not find a pair that suits them. There are a few factors to consider when buying a new pair of eye glasses. It’s important to discover your face shape and coloring, and understanding which style and shape of eye glasses will be best suitable for you.

As for the face shape….

Three main things to consider:

1. The shape of the frame should be in scale with the size of your face.
2. The eye wear you choose should reflect your best quality (i.e. green eyes to green frames)
3. The shape of the frame should contrast with your face shape.

You may not know the shape of your face. And there are quite a few face shapes. Here’s a small description of each one.

Oval: considered to be the “ideal” face because it seems most portioned. Try frames that are as wide as the widest part of the face.

Oblong: this face is longer than it is wide. Frames that have more depth than width make the oblong face seem shorter.

Base-up triangle: has a wide top third of the face and a small bottom third. Frames that are wider at the bottom seem to minimize the top of the face.

Diamond: broad cheekbones but are narrow at the eye line and jawbone. Rimless frames or frames that have a detailed brow line.

Square: has a strong jawline and broad forehead. Narrow frames could help make the face seem longer.

Round: has curved lines with the length and width in the same proportions. Narrow angular frames will help the face seem longer.

Color Analysis: 3 things to remember

1. The color of the eye wear should complement one’s personal coloring.
2. People either have a warm coloring or a cool coloring.
3. All people look best in their own coloring.

The majority of us know how important it is to our overall health and well being to have regular eye tests, no matter how old or young we are. What the majority of us don’t know though is how to choose the right eye glasses for our faces.

The secret to choosing eye glasses that suit is all down to defining your face shape and then selecting the glasses for that shape. Here is a guide to help you.

Oblong face shape – this face shape is longer than it is wide with a long straight cheek line and longish nose. If you have this face shape you should opt for aviator framed glasses that will make your face appear shorter and wider.

Diamond face shape – this face is narrow at the eye line and jawline with broad high cheek bones. The best glasses for this shaped face are top heavy frames such as semi-rimless. These draw attention to the eye area creating more width and balance to your face.

Square – this face shape has a broad deep forehead with wide jaw line and square chin. Oval or round frame glasses will suit this shape face best as they soften the jaw line.

Heart – this face shape has a broad forehead with wide cheek bones that narrow to a small chin. Rectangular or oval glasses suit this face shape as they emphasize it.

Triangle – this face shape has a broad forehead and wide cheek bones that narrow to a small chin. Frames that are wider at the bottom and lighter in color will suit this face shape. Try trimless frame styles for example.

Oval – this face shape is well balanced being softly rounded with a forehead that is slightly wider than the jaw line. This face curves softly and cheek bones are high. This lucky face shape should suit any style glasses they care to choose.

Round – this face shape is fairly short with a wide forehead, full cheeks and a rounded chin. A rectangular frame will make this face slimmer and longer.

Now you have all the face shapes and glasses to suit- all you need to do is look in the mirror and decide which face shape you have. Done that? Well get yourself across to Eye Wear Unlimited and choose your perfect pair.
