3 Tips for Choosing Eyeglasses, High Point, North Carolina

When you pick out eyeglasses, you aren't just choosing an accessory. You'll be wearing them every day, so it's essential to choose the frames that will look good on you. Optics Eyewear in High Point, NC, wants you to love your eyeglasses and offers these tips for choosing your next pair.

How to Choose Frames for Your Eyeglasses

1. Proportion

eyeglassesChoosing everyday eyeglasses is different from choosing sunglasses. Large sunglasses are fashionable and practical. Your ordinary glasses, on the other hand, should be smaller and proportionate to your face.

2. Color

Choose a color that works well with your skin tone and eyes. Black is a good color for drawing attention to your eyes, but you may also want to consider colors that contrast your eyes or hair for more pop.

3. Basic Shape

Consider the shape of your face, and choose a shape of eyeglasses that complements it:

  • Heart-Shaped Face: Aviator glasses with flared bottom rims can help balance a narrow chin, while rimless styles avoid overemphasizing a wide forehead.

  • Square Face: Choose narrow, rounded styles to soften a strong jawline and help visually lengthen the face.

  • Oval Face: If your cheeks are the broadest part of your face, heavy upper rims and butterfly-wing styles that tilt up at the outer corners will help draw attention to your eyes.

  • Round Face: As with the square face, use narrow rectangular glasses to add length to your features.

  • Trapezoidal Face: If your jaw is the widest part of your face, half-rim and cat eyeglasses can help draw attention upward and add balance.

If you're overdue for new eyeglasses, go to Optics Eyewear in High Point to update your lenses and look. For questions or to schedule an appointment with their licensed optician, call them at (336) 884-5677, or send a message online.
