Frames for Glasses: Find Stylish Glass FramesWhen it comes to choosing eyeglass frames, it helps to consider the following:
Choosing the perfect pair of eyeglasses can be one of the more important decisions you will need to make. They are, after all, vital accessories and with so many options and things to consider, it can be rather daunting. The best place to start is with one of our eye care professionals, because they have been thoroughly trained in the art and science of custom fitting. When it comes to choosing the best frames, think of them as your personal stylist! They not only have a trained eye for the best look, they know which styles work best with your eyeglass prescription and the particular lenses you have chosen.
- Are these eyewear frames for everyday use or occasional use such as reading or driving? The chunky, oversized candy apple red glasses frames might look delicious for the occasional wear, but how will you feel about wearing them day-in and day out? Sometimes it’s best to purchase more than one style eyeglass frame, so that you can customize your look accordingly.
- Do you simply dislike the idea of glasses altogether, or feel that you just cannot find a frame that fits your style? You may want to consider lightweight lenses and a rimeless frame for your eyeglasses, or contact lenses for your vision correction needs. With increased technology in developing lighter, thinner lenses, and frame materials, as well as contact lenses with higher water content for increased comfort (even with stronger prescriptions or astigmatism) you have a very good chance of finding a solution that works for you.
- Are they comfortable? This may seem obvious, but sometimes we forget that we will be wearing our glasses longer than when we are trying them on. Does the bridge of the frame or adjustable nosepads rest comfortable or does it begin to pinch after time? Do the temple tips or earpieces sit comfortably after several minutes of wear? Can you comfortably bend without the frames slipping off? Keep in mind that your eyeglass professional can adjust your frame of choice for a better fit, but this can only go so far. It is important to have properly fitting glasses, so take the time to get it right.
