Choosing the Right Frames

Your Optometrist in Winchester Can Help You choose the Best Glasses

large selection of frames at winchester optical in winchester, ma

When you need to wear eyeglasses, you know choosing the right frames for you is important. The glasses you wear tell others so much about your personality and unique sense of style. It can be difficult to choose just the right pair on your own sometimes, and we understand this. You may be overwhelmed with the choice of frames, or second guess yourself on what looks good on you. Let our eye doctor in Winchester help you choose the perfect pair. We work closely with you to find frames that fit your face, style, and budget. Our frames specialists are experts at this and can find the ideal frames for you based on your appearance and your desires. Just tell them what you like, and take the guess work out of getting excellent and attractive frames.

Your Face Shape and Your Frames

There are seven main face shapes. These are:

  • Oval
  • Square
  • Round
  • Oblong
  • Heart-Shaped
  • Diamond
  • Base-Down Triangle

The type of frames you should get depends heavily on the shape of your face. Your face shape not only influences the best shape of frames for you but sometimes even their color. Our experts can help you determine your face shape if you aren't sure about it, and will assist you in selecting the best frames for you based on it.

As an example, if you have a square face, you will probably want frames that will soften the hard edges. You can do this by selecting rounded frames with more vertical than horizontal lines in their design. Of course, some people may prefer to highlight the sharp angles of a square face, in which case more angular lenses would be preferable.

An oval face does best with frames that are as wide or wider than the longest part of the face, and that follow your unique brow line. Diamond and rectangle lenses work really well with this type of face.  An oblong face is meant for frames that shorten the appearance of the face. The best frames will have depth and a low bridge, as well as strong vertical lines on them.

A heart shaped face will do best with light colored lenses or rimless lenses. The base-down triangle face, diamond face, and round face all have their own unique frames that suit them best. Let us show you the wonder of the world of frames. You will see the difference when you try on frames that are best for your face shape and compare them to those that work against your natural good features.
