If you have a refractive error, you will need to choose a form of eye wear to correct your vision. This typically includes contact lenses or eyeglasses. Many people like the way they look in eyeglasses, and they are happy with the vision correction. If you are considering using glasses for your vision, it can be hard to pick out just the right frames. At Legacy Optical in Hampton Bays, NY, we can help. Our team will help you find the right frames for your taste and lifestyle.
Choosing the Color of Your Frames
Many people want to start with the color of their frames, as this is one of the most noticeable parts of glasses. If you want to choose the color first, try several frames on, regardless of their shapes, to get a feel for the color. The color you choose should look good with your skin, but it needs to look good with your hair as well. Don't choose a color purely based on your favorite colors. It's important to try them and see whether they clash with your coloring.
Choosing the Shape
Another important aspect of your frames is the shape. The shape can make your face look more harmonious and balanced. The goal is to balance your face's features to make it look like an oval, which is the most neutral shape. If you already have an oval face, you can use virtually any shape because you don't need to change the way any feature looks. With other shapes, such as heart-shaped, square and round, you can choose a frame shape that will make your face look more like an oval.
If you have a round face, avoid round glasses, as they will only make your face look rounder. Getting square frames can make your face look a little more angular. If you have a heart-shaped face, you can choose narrow frames to try to balance the top and bottom of your face. If you have a square, prominent jaw, getting round glasses can help it to look less square. Wide frames will help to balance the wide jaw with the rest of the face.
