Keep reading to learn more about choosing the right eyeglasses for your face and lifestyle.
How to choose the perfect frame for you
Our optical team is trained to look at a variety of factors when helping you find the perfect frame for your needs. We start off by looking at the prescription that has been written for you. If you have a large amount of nearsightedness or farsightedness, certain frame shapes and materials are better suited for you. For example, if you have a high amount of myopia, we may recommend a smaller round plastic frame. This will improve cosmetic appearance, clarity and comfort.
How to Choose the Right Eyeglasses for Your Lifestyle
Just like clothing, there are certain types of eyeglasses that are better suited for certain lifestyles. Consider how often you'll be wearing your glasses and what activities you'll be doing while wearing them when choosing the right pair:
Active: If you lead an active lifestyle, look for frames that are lightweight and durable such as an Oakley frame or wraparound sunglasses.
Casual: If you lead a casual lifestyle, look for frames that can be worn with any outfit. You may want to consider whether you are more comfortable in a metal frame with nose pads or a plastic frame without nose pads.
How to choose the right eyeglasses for your occupation
Depending on what your occupational needs are, the doctor may recommend lenses for computer or multifocal use. If you require a progressive or a bifocal lens, our optical team may recommend a frame that is deeper vertically, rather than very small. This will allow you to make the most use of your lens technology.
Why you should have an annual eye exam before investing in designer frames
You may be eager to purchase a new pair of glasses with an older prescription. Our team will always recommend having an annual eye exam first - not only to check your eye health, but also, to make sure that you're getting the right prescription for your needs. Sometimes, it is necessary to trial frame a special prescription if you are looking to order glasses for computer or intermediate distances. An optometrist on our team can help you determine the best power for your individualized needs. Our licensed opticians will then recommend the best frame based on these results.
