Pointers for Choosing the Right Frame for Your Eyewear

Working in front of the computer has become common for many people, and for good reason. For one, it allows you to interact with others instantaneously, which would have been impossible decades back. While this is a good change, we have also become more prone to eye problems. In fact, many wear corrective glasses and lenses these days to help them see well, and for some of them, looking good is still vital.

Let Shady Grove Eye and Vision Care provide you some tips on choosing the right eyeglass frame:

Consider the Shape of Your Face

Choose an eyeglass frame that will accentuate your best facial feature. It should also contrast with your face shape and its size should be in scale with the size of your face. If you have an oval face, go for frames that are as wide as the broadest part of your face. Go for frames that are wider at the bottom if you have a base-up triangle shaped face. You can also rely on a capable optometrist in Rockville, MD to help you choose the best eyeglass frame for your face.

Consider the Color of the Frame

Choose an eyeglass to match your overall skin tone. All complexion falls under either cool or warm colors. A cool skin tone has blue or pink undertones and a warm complexion has “peaches and cream” or a yellow shade. The second element you should consider would be the color of your eyes, and then your hair. Once you figure out your body’s color scheme, go for frames that will complement those features. For that, we offer eyeglass frames that come in a wide selection of colors that will blend with your hair, eye, and skin tone.

Consider your Lifestyle

Your lifestyle plays a big part in choosing the right frames for your eyeglasses in Alexandria, VA. Do you often engage in physical activities? Do you party a lot? We offer Flexon Titanium eyeglass frames that are ideal for an active lifestyle. They can withstand bending and twisting and will revert to their original shape. They are lightweight, hypoallergenic, and can resist corrosion. You can also go for our Silhouette® frame. They are lightweight as well and offer superior comfort. Their modest design makes it look like you are not wearing any glasses at all and will keep you looking stylish.
