Choosing The Right Glasses

For those who wear glasses, choosing just the right pair can take some time. It is important to choose your eyeglasses based on how they look, feel, and function. Trying on several pairs of eyeglasses will help you find the ones that work best with your facial features and coloring. At Shippee Family Eye Care, P.C., we can help. Serving St. Johnsbury and Montpelier, VT and Lancaster and Littleton, NH, our optometrist will help you find the right eyeglasses.

A Harmonious Face

The way your face looks should factor into the glasses that you choose. The shape of your face is a good place to start. The overall goal for the shape of your frames is for them to make your face look more like an oval. If your face is round, rectangular or square frames can make your face look more ovular. If your face is square-shaped, round or oval glasses can make it look more ovular. It's also helpful to use your frames to balance your features. If you have a prominent feature, your frames can be used for balance for a more harmonious look. For instance, having a large, prominent jaw can be balanced by wider frames.

The Best Color

Another important factor in choosing your frames is getting the right color. Choosing the right color isn't as easy as simply choosing a favorite color. The frames should look good with your own coloring, including the color of your face and your hair. It shouldn't clash with either and should look harmonious with both. Tortoise-shell frames are highly popular, because they look good with a wide range of complexions.
