Tips For Choosing The Best Prescription Glasses For You

When it comes to eyewear, it's important to take your time and make the right choice. You may only wear your prescription glasses constantly or only during certain activities, but either way, you want them to be comfortable, stylish and flattering. You typically keep your glasses a minimum of one year, so when you choose your frames, you will want to be sure you like them!

Can Inexpensive Glasses Still Be Stylish And Comfortable?

While higher-end glasses are certainly nice, you'll find that there are a wide range of affordable glasses you can choose from. You don't need to spend a fortune to get high-quality, stylish and comfortable eyewear.

How To Choose The Best Prescription Glasses

One of the first things to consider when choosing frames for prescription glasses is the shape of your face. This is crucial. If you aren't sure what face shape you have, your technician will be happy to help you. 

For example, if you have a round-shaped face, it's best to choose eyeglass frames that are square or rectangle, and that are a bit wider than your face. This helps to create contour and is more flattering than a rounder frame.

Another thing to consider is skin tone. If you have a warmer skin tone, you will want to avoid silver or other cool tones. Instead opt for a warmer color, a tortoise shell brown, for example, or a bronze. Cooler skin tones will look nice with silver, black, grays or blues.

Remember, prescription glasses can be affordable glasses. It's important to choose an optometrist that offers a wide selection of eyewear, and that will take the time to ensure a proper, comfortable fit.
