What's the Best Way to Choose Eyeglasses?

When you are picking your new glasses, it's easy to get overwhelmed by the number of choices around you. However, there are ways that you can narrow down all of those choices and pick just the right pair. It's a smart idea to start with a color and whittle down the number of colors that look great on you. The color of the frames should go well with your own coloring on both your hair and skin. Hold each color up to both so that you can see how well they complement each other. You can eliminate colors that clash.

Which Shape Works Best for Me?

The next criteria to use is the shape of the frames. This is done by analyzing the shape of your face and choosing a frame shape that goes well with it. The ultimate goal is to make your face look more like the ideal face shape which is an oval. For instance, if you have a rectangular face, a pair of round glasses may cause your face to be seen as more rounded and more like an oval. Try a few frame shapes to see how each shape looks on your face. This allows you to further narrow down the choices for the best pair.

What Are the Benefits of Wearing Eyeglasses?

Many people wonder whether glasses are the right choice for them. While there are plenty of benefits to wearing contact lenses, there are also several benefits to wearing eyeglasses. Many people like the classic look of wearing glasses and enjoy choosing a pair that allows them to express themselves and make their faces look more harmonious. Eyeglasses are also easy to wear glasses and putting them on and taking them off is a breeze.
