How to Choose the Right Optical Eyeglasses
When you go to an optometrist and get a new prescription for eyeglasses, the next step is to choose the right frames. This choice can be daunting, especially if you have never done it. There are so many styles and brands of optical eyeglasses available that it can be hard to know where to start.
At Modern Eyes Optometry, we believe everyone deserves glasses that reflect their style. So here are a few things to remember when choosing the perfect pair of optical eyeglasses.
There are three main categories of skin tones warm, cool, and neutral. A person with a warm skin tone typically has a yellow or peachy undertone to their skin. Someone with a cool skin tone usually has a pink or blue undertone. And for those with a neutral skin tone, their skin is neither pink nor yellow. The general guideline is that people with warm skin tones choose frames with earthy hues, such as brown and gold. Cool skin tones appear best in brackets with black, white, and silver hues. And those with a neutral skin tone can pull off any color.
There are four main face structures: oval, round, square, and heart. People with oval faces should wear frames wider than they are tall. Those with a round face should opt for structures more elevated than they are wide. People with a square face can wear either type of frame but should avoid ones that are too small or too large. Finally, those with heart-shaped faces should look for wider frames at the bottom than at the top. Your eye doctor can help you choose the perfect pair after your eye exam.
Are you an active person who likes to be outdoors? If you prefer a more relaxed lifestyle, choose a pair of durable frames that withstand a lot of wear and tear. Those who prefer a more relaxed lifestyle have the luxury of choosing any type of frame. Your eye doctor will also provide advice on this.
Last, you need to consider your budget when choosing optical eyeglasses. Different brands and styles of frames are available, but the price range can be pretty extensive. Therefore, finding a pair of frames that you like and fit your budget is essential.
