What to Look for When Buying Eyeglasses

We all feel bummed when that one pair of fashionable eyeglasses does not work for us. "It's too big!" or "No, the colour doesn't match that of my eyes." Or "I don't like the frame." With so many different shapes and sizes, it can be a little disappointing. In order to avoid this, there are some important factors to consider while looking for glasses, so let's go over these together!

1. Frame Size & Fit

Now that online shopping is the new thing, we see pictures of glasses and accessories on every platform. We scroll through eyeglasses of different sizes and shapes to find the ones that we want. Let's not forget that people have preferences. However, not all frames work. It is helpful to understand the information regarding the glasses size and fit. In other words, lens width (two digits), bridge width (two numbers) and temple length (three digits). The digits, found in the temple, reveal the size of the glasses. They are mentioned in this particular order.

What is the number one rule? Keep glasses from slipping off your face which is why you need to make sure to choose the perfect frame for your small face. If the frame is too broad, your glasses will fall when you look down. Also, we strongly advise you to pick a pair that has the best width for your face. So, everything comes down to balance. The glasses should look good and make you feel good.

2. Face Shape

Many people mistakenly buy eyeglasses that are too big or too small because it looks cooler. But, this shouldn't be the case. You will frequently be wearing your eyeglasses, so all elements must fall into place. Your face shape plays a huge role. It determines what eyewear will make your facial features look better. Are you not sure of your face shape? Taking a look at our face shape glasses guide can help you determine your shape and make shopping for eyeglasses a lot easier.

Different types of face shapes

3. Skin Tone

The third factor is rarely taken into consideration. On the contrary, it is as equally important as the others. Not all eyeglasses with colour frames can match your skin tone. If you are warm-toned, try shopping for glasses with neutral frames. It will look great on you. Yet, if you have a cool complexion, pick frames that are jewel-hued.

4. Lens Types and Materials

The eyeglass lens is customized to fit your eye sight perfectly. Before anything else, your visuals are the most vital thing to consider. Therefore, you must get yourself examined first by a professional. As a result, you agree on the best lens and materials. There are numerous types of optical lenses such as single vision, bifocal and lens materials like glass and polycarbonate. Each lens has its own characteristics. We recommend you discuss your options with your eye specialist.

5. Hair Colour and Length

Believe it or not, your hair colour can actually affect your overall physical appearance when you wear your eyeglasses. Not only that, your hair length will highlight your face shape. As we previously mentioned, your face shape is one of the things to consider when purchasing any type of eyewear.

6. Eye Colour

Are your eyes blue or brown? It is preferable to coordinate between your eyeglasses' frame and the colour of your eyes. If you want your eyes to stand out, go for a more muted colour glasses frame. For instance, if your eyes are green, you can buy thin transparent frames. Also, your frames' thickness and colour will naturally show what particular eyeglasses will suit you most.

7. Lifestyle

The fact that you will be wearing your eyeglasses most of the time, the chosen pair will need to match your personality and lifestyle. Are you a positive person? Buy some bright glasses! If you're more of an outdoor person, go for small acetate glasses to withstand any activity you might endure. It is known that eyewear can make a fashionable statement. So express yourself and let loose! There are many odd, geometrical and quirky concepts of glasses for small faces such as the cat eyes, hexagon, 18th-century spectacles etc.
