When you need to correct your vision, eyeglasses are a great choice. They have the benefits of not only great looks but also making the face look more balanced and harmonious. Many people love the way they look in glasses. It's a good idea to know the criteria to use when choosing your glasses to get the perfect pair that compliments your face. If you need eyeglasses in Wethersfield or West Hartford, give us a call at Optometric Specialty Group to schedule your appointment.
Your Eyeglasses Color
The color of the frames that you choose needs to go well with your own coloring. It should go with both your skin color and hair color and not cause any clashing. The colors should harmonize so that the glasses look like they belong on your face. Hold your frames up to both your skin and your hair to ensure that they go well with both before choosing your frames. You can make your choice of eyeglasses easier by being able to exclude a few frame colors.
Your Eyeglasses Shape
The shape of your frames is just as important as their color. The shape that you choose should be able to create a balance between your facial features and make your face look more like an ideal oval shape. You can do this by pairing your face shape with the right frame shape. First, you need to know what your face's shape is. Then, you should choose a shape that complements that shape and makes it look more ovular. For instance, if you have a rectangular face, a pair of round frames may make the rectangular shape look rounder and more ovular. By trying a few shapes, you can exclude certain shapes that don't complement the shape of your face well.
Balance Your Features
The width of the frames can also help to balance your features. If you have a wide chin, for example, wider frames can help to balance that width. If you have a wide forehead, narrower frames can help to de-emphasize it. Take a look at your face and see if any part of it needs to be in better balance.
