Oval, Round, Cat's Eyes
Reduce the angles with soft, curvy styles that will give definition. Cat's eyes styles and classic ovals work well.
Widen and shorten the face with styles that do not extend beyond the widest part of the face. Round or square shapes will look great. Decorative or contrasting temples add width to the face.
Straight Top Line, Cat's Eyes
Soften the lower portion of the face by accenting the eye area. Cat's eyes style should angle out at the top corner, metal frames with rimless bottom also work well.
Any Frame Shape
Almost any style works well for an oval face, experiment with the latest looks, such as shields, square-shaped frames, higher temples.
Wider Frames, Rectangular, Angular
Frame shouldmake the face appear longer and thinner. Look for frames equal to or slightly wider than the broadest part of the face. Soft angular, rectangle or double brow styles work well.
Oval, Square, Rimless
Oval sunglasses will soften the contour of the face. Make sure the styles are no wider than the top of the cheekbones.
We will also help you to choose the right frame material for your prescription spectacles, whether you need them to be lightweight, flexible, super strong, and/or hypoallergenic.
Many of our frames utilise spring hinges which can be more durable if you are taking your glasses off regularly when you are not reading or working with a computer. The weight of the glasses will also influence your wearing comfort.
The next step is fashion and function. A mixture of both will usually be the best solution. We have a wide range of models and brands for you to choose from with a large variety of frame sizes to fit all ages from child to adult.
After choosing the right frame, it is equally important to select the most suitable lenses. Our practice will be pleased to offer you the latest in lens technology and our staff will advise you as to what will best suit both your prescription and your lifestyle.
