A “How to Guide” on Choosing the Perfect Eyeglasses

Long gone are the days of “omg I have to wear glasses”.  Thankfully eyewear is so on trend, and wearing it instantly makes you cooler.  Whether you have to wear them because you can’t see two feet in front of your face or you have picture perfect vision; these trendy accessories come in all shapes, sizes and colors. At Insight Complete Eye Care in Dallas, we understand eyewear and we want yours to make a statement.

Face Shape

When choosing eyeglasses, carefully study the shape of your face. Is it narrow or wide? Is the general shape rounded, square or rectangular, heart-shaped or triangular?  Understanding face shape is crucial to getting a well-tailored pair of spectacles that compliments your features. To keep it simple, generally the shape of your eyeglasses should contrast the shape of your face.  To give you an idea, angular face shapes look best with more rounded shaped frames which tend to soften features. Triangular faces have wider jawlines that angle to a narrower forehead [think Reese Witherspoon] and benefit from a cat-eye style to balance features

Color

Did we mention color?! Do you remember ROGIBIV from grade school well imagine that on steroids?  This is the fun part as almost anything goes. As unique as you are, so is your color palette when it comes to eyewear collections. A few things to consider when choosing eyeglasses would be hair color, eye color and complexion.  Warmer skin tones tend to do well with earth tone shades of beige, brown, gold, orange, red, and green. Dark frames especially black tend to make light eyes stand out across a room-talk about a “wow-factor”. Tortoiseshell frames are a great neutral while complimenting warm and cool complexions.  Go big, go bright, And BE BOLD. Glasses are a part of who you are and directly reflect your unique personality.
