Choosing The Right Glasses

Everyone who wears glasses knows that their frames are a part of fashion as well as a way to correct vision. When you wear glasses, you're expressing your style as well as seeing clearly. If you need new glasses, or you'd like to try some different ones, the optometry professionals at Shippee Eye Care are ready to assist you. We have locations in Lancaster, St. Johnsbury, and Montpelier, and will help you select the perfect glasses to meet both your medical needs and your personal style preferences.

Choosing Your Color

Glasses are worn right on the skin and next to the hair, which makes it necessary for the colors to go well with both. They don't have to match either color completely, but they should be complimentary. If you can't decide on one color, try a tortoiseshell pair that has several shades. There are also frameless glasses and clear frames that can both go with just about any color of the skin and hair.

Balancing Your Features

When you are choosing your glasses, make sure that the shape of them complements your specific features. For instance, if you have a wide jaw, a wide pair of frames can balance that feature and create a look of better facial harmony. If your face is very square, some rounded frames can help to add roundness to your face shape. If your face is round, use squared lenses so that your face won't look too round. If your face is wide across the forehead, choose smaller frames so that you don't make it look wider.
