When it comes to choosing glasses that fit your face, you want to make sure that you take your time and try on a wide variety of frames. Because glasses are your most worn accessory— besides maybe your wedding ring, of course— it’s important that they fit your face and make you feel like a million bucks. Whether you have a round face or a narrow face, this article will list what types of frames you should be looking for based on face shape. Read on to learn more.
If you have a round-shaped face, the best style of frames for you to choose are rectangular ones. By breaking up the roundness in your face, rectangular shaped frames, help to make your face look both longer and thinner.
Rather than choosing glasses that have harsh lines and angles, if you have a square shaped face, look for ones that will soften those sharp lines. We encourage our patients to choose frames that are either oval or round.
Oval Shaped Face
An oval shaped face is one that is typically longer and not as wide, but that is still round. Similar to those with round shaped faces, an oval shaped one is balanced out by wearing lenses that are more square.
Heart Shaped Face
When you have a heart shaped face, you want to balance your face out with your glasses by making your chin appear larger. To do this, try to look for frames that are wider than your actual face— this will help to add that extra bit of balance that you need.
Choosing the right shape and style of glasses will make you not only look good but feel stylish while doing so. If you would like to learn more about what glasses you should choose to match your face shape, contact Dr. David Aizuss today and schedule an eye examination.
