Having perfect eyesight is something we take for granted. It isn't until it starts to fade that we realise how integral it is to our quality of life. As a result many of us have not considered prescription glasses prior to needing them. Suddenly we are faced with an overwhelming number of prescription frames in which to choose from. The eyes are a key feature in providing others with insight into our personality. When it comes to framing this feature, we are given the able to to reflect our identity through the size, shape and colour of our prescription glasses. But how do you know what suits best? EzyChoice Prescription Eyewear understands the difficulties faced when choosing prescription glasses and are here to offer a few considerations to make your decision easier. When choosing your prescription glasses consider matching colours to your eye colour and skin tone; the size of the frames and whether they suit your face shape; the style and how it compliments your lifestyle, occupation and activities. Choosing a Prescription Frame Colour Consider reflecting your best feature - choose a frame that enhances your eye colour. Blue frames will make your blue eyes stand out; tortoiseshell frames are perfect for brown eyes, as are darker rims. Red frames will compliment a bright eye colour - blue or hazel. Solid black is often an endearing choice for all shades of eyes, and is often complimented with a bright colour on the reverse. Choose a colour that you feel comfortable wearing. There are frames to suit all personalities from bright, bold and outgoing to simple, reserved and subtle designs. With so many to choose from, you are sure to find something that reflects your unique identity. Face shape + Frame shape Choosing the shape can be the hardest decision when finding the right prescription frame There are roughly seven face shapes - square, oval, oblong, round, triangle, diamond and heart shape. Although it is an entirely personal decision that you should ideally feel comfortable with, there are some guidelines as to what frames compliment certain face shapes, and which frames should be avoided. If you are unsure, make sure you bring a friend a long, and consult your optician who has experience in fitting frames to faces. Square: oval or round frames, or butterfly shaped glasses will suits an angular face with a strong jaw line. Avoid geometric and square shaped glasses that will likely accentuate harsh angles of the face. Oval: with a balanced face shape choose a balanced frame. Most prescription frame will work with the face shape; squarer frames will define a softer, rounder face shape. Oblong: Taller, broad glasses with an accentuated top rim will compliment an oblong face, smaller, short frames will only lengthen a long face. Round: Angular, rectangle glasses are perfect for a full cheeked, rounded chin face shape. Draw attention to the top of the face and add length with your glasses. Round, large frames will only shorten your face. Triangle: The semi-rimless frame is perfect for your face shape. While narrow frames are out of proportion, top heavy styles balance your wider jaw structure. Diamond: This angular face shape is best suited to oval frames, rimless or cat-eye styles that define the cheek bone area. Narrow frames draw attention to a narrow eye line. Heart: narrow, round frames soften the forehead while bottom heavy frames add width to the lower face.
