The Right Frames for Your Face Shape - Our Optician Can Help!

The most important consideration when selecting your eyeglass frames is their compatibility with your corrective lenses. For example, if your lenses are heavy you will require a sturdy frame that can support their weight. The right frames will work with your lenses, be comfortable, suit your lifestyle, and flatter your face.

Face shape plays a big role in frame selection as different shaped frames will be more comfortable and more flattering on certain face shapes. The most common face shapes are round, oval, heart-shaped, and square, each with certain styles that are the most suitable. Our optician is well-versed in the aspects of face shapes and the right frames that will suit you the best. They are here to help you find frames that you want that also work great for you!

A comprehensive approach to choosing the right frames will include measuring your face width and length and determine which shape is most applicable. Some people do not have a dominant shape and our optician can help direct you to the right options in such cases.

Round faces usually look best with highly defined frames such as cat eyes or square as these add angularity to their face and highlight their cheekbones. Most all frame shapes look great on people who are lucky enough to have an oval-shaped face. And heart-shaped faces should look for frames that broaden the chin and the lower part of the face such as classic cat eyes or frames with a wavy brow. Square shaped folks typically look great sporting frames that are round or curvy that soften the angular appearance of their square face.
