Face Shape

First and foremost, you'll want to choose frames that complement your face shape. There are a few different face shapes to consider: round, square, oval, heart-shaped, and diamond-shaped. Each shape looks best with certain frame styles. For example, round faces often look great with rectangular frames, while square faces can pull off round frames. We can help guide you and help you figure out which styles work best for your face shape.


Next, you'll want to pick your color wisely. Consider matching your frames to your hair and skin tone. You may want to go for brown, gold, or red frames if you have warm undertones. If you have cool undertones, try black, silver, or blue frames. Of course, you can also go for a pop of color if you're feeling bold!

Matching your frames with your eye color is another option to consider. For example, if you have blue eyes, try frames in blue or gray. If you have brown eyes, you could try brown, green, or gold frames.

Lens Shape

Lens shapes are also important to consider, especially regarding the size and shape of your eyes. You may opt for larger lenses to balance out your features if you have larger eyes. Similarly, smaller lenses might be a better choice if you have smaller eyes.

Lifestyle Choices

Let's discuss some features you want to look for in your glasses. If you spend a lot of time outdoors, consider polarized sunglasses to reduce glare. Mirrored sunglasses are another option to add extra style to your look. If you need progressive lenses, make sure you choose frames that are compatible with them.

Finally, think about your lifestyle needs. If you're always on the go, consider lightweight frames that won't weigh you down. If you like to make a statement with your glasses, designer frames or prescription glasses might be right up your alley.

Ultimately, choosing glasses that make you feel confident and comfortable is the most important thing. We at Medical Arts Optical are here to help you find the perfect frames!
