If you are in need of a new pair of eyeglasses, you are likely to have some concerns about what type to select. The first step in obtaining a pair of glasses you will love is to make an appointment at Eyewear Unlimited in Columbus. Our optometrist will conduct an evaluation of your vision and eye health and determine your prescription strength. Here are some tips to use when picking out a new set of eyeglasses.

Along Someone To Help

It is always helpful to have someone with you when you have an appointment for your examination. If you decide to have your pupils dilated to check for certain eye problems, they can give you a ride home afterward. In addition, they can observe the different frames that you try on to help you pick out a set that looks wonderful with your facial features.

Keep Your Head Shape In Mind

It is important to know what the shape of your head is so you can opt for frames that complement it well. For example, if your face is round, opting for a set of angular or squared frames will offset your features. If your head is long, round frames will draw the eyes upward toward your frames. If you are unsure about the shape of your face, place a piece of tracing paper over a photograph of yourself and trace the perimeter. When you lift the paper away from the photo, you will have a shape to use to help you determine what type of frame to select.

Let Our Staff Assist

Our staff members are trained to help our customers with their frame selection. Simply let them know what type of features you wish for your frames to include, and they will point you in the right direction in finding exactly what you are looking for. We offer many styles, colors, and brands, making it easy to find a set of frames that meet your desires.

Consider A Spare Set

Many people like to change their appearance according to functions they need to attend or tasks they wish to do. If you engage in sports, you may want to invest in a set of sports frames to protect your eyes while you exercise. If you read regularly, you may want to opt for bifocals or purchase a separate set of reading glasses. Change your look instantly by purchasing frames in different styles and colors.
