Choosing The Right Glasses

Eyeglasses change how a person looks. At our Wethersfield, CT and West Hartford, CT clinic, patients are always confused when it comes to choosing glasses. However, getting the right frames for you is not as hard as it seems. Optometrists always seem to know what glasses suit patients so that they always end up with the right fit. 

.

Here are the main factors that staff at Optometric Specialty Group consider when choosing the right glasses:

1. Personality  

A lot of the things we do give away information on the type of person we are. At the Wethersfield, CT and West Hartford, CT clinics, eye specialists can prescribe your glasses based on your personality. If we sense a fun and exciting personality, then they will probably leave with a bold colored frame and vibrant colored eyecare. Professional and serious people usually lean towards subtle tones that do not draw too much attention. Children love to have fun with glasses. We recommend glasses that have numerous embellishments and patterns.

2. Face Shape 

Your face’s shape determines how your glasses interact with your other features. Thus, face shape is an essential part of selecting the right glasses. Here are some face shapes and glasses that match:

  • Heart-Shaped Face: People with a heart-shaped face have narrow chins and relatively broad foreheads. Thus, they need eyewear that has wide and heavyset bottom parts. This is so that width can be added to the narrower parts of the face. Round and square glasses are best for people with heart hated faces. Avoid frames that have a broad or prominent top part.
  • Square Shaped Face: Square faced people require glasses that add a soft touch to the face. Round eyeglasses will balance out the striking features and give a subtle and delicate look. Avoid square shaped glasses because they overemphasize the shape of your face.
  • Diamond-Shaped Face: A diamond shaped face is one with a narrow chin and forehead. Thus, you will need frames that are wider than the cheeks to give the face a complete look. 
  • Round Face: A round face requires eyeglasses that are boxy in shape. These tend to be wider than one’s face, thus making your face appear slimmer. Avoid rimless and round glasses if your face is round.
