Eyeglasses are extremely effective for people who have a vision prescription and don't see clearly. There are various vision problems that wearing glasses can help with. However, many people aren't sure how to pick the right frames for their eyeglasses. They end up trying on dozens and dozens in an attempt to find the right ones for their face. There are ways that you can narrow down your search and find the perfect pair more easily. At Optometric Specialty Group, we have eye care offices in Wethersfield and West Hartford for appointments with an optometrist to help you find the best frames.
The Color of Your Frames
The hunt for the perfect frames can be easily narrowed down by discovering which color or colors work best for you. Try on a few pairs of frames that are different colors. Hold each one close to your hair and then to your face to make sure that the color doesn't clash with either. The color you choose should go well with your coloring and look like it belongs on your face. Once you have found colors that clash, you can eliminate all of the frames of that color.
The Shape of Your Frames
You can use the same process of elimination based on the shape of the frames. There will be some shapes that won't work well for your face. The key is to find a frame shape at our eye care center that will make your face appear to be an oval. You can use the shape of the frames to balance out your features and create the look. For instance, someone with a rectangular face can wear round eyeglasses to make their face look more curved. Be sure to take a look at your face shape and then determine which shape would go best with it.
You can also use the shape of the frames to balance out a prominent feature. If you have a broad forehead, you can use narrower frames to make it look smaller. A wide chin can be balanced out by wide frames. Once you have eliminated the shapes that do nothing for your face, it will be easier to find just the right pair that will make you look your best.
