Picking The Right Frames

Selecting a pair of frames can be overwhelming. Not only do you want them to look great, but you want your new glasses to be comfortable and practical for your lifestyle. At Warm Springs Optometric Group in Fremont, CA, we have a beautiful selection of stylish frames to help you look your best.


Consider the Shape of Your Face When Choosing Frames

When selecting a frame, your face shape is extremely important. There are several tips to follow when choosing frames for different face shapes.

  • Oblong - A longer face often looks good with frames that have decorative additions at the temple area.
  • Round - Narrow glasses that have angles are a good choice for those with round faces.
  • Heart - You'll want to choose frames that are wider at the bottom to help balance greater width at the top of your face.
  • Square - Narrow or oval shaped frames can flatter a square shaped face.
  • Oval - You'll want to select glasses that are at least as wide as the widest part of your face.

Consider Your Skin Tone

It's important to consider both your skin tone and hair color when choosing a pair of frames. Skin tones are normally either "warm" or "cool." Warm skin tones with olive or yellow undertones look good with gold, brown, and beige colored frames. Cool skin normally has pinkish undertones and goes well with purple, blue, gray, and black.

Consider Your Lifestyle

If you're physically active, you'll likely want a pair of strong, solid frames that won't damage easily. If you're choosing frames primarily for business and you want to promote a professional image, rimless or stainless-steel frames are good choices. For a creative or artistic look, vintage or retro styles are an excellent option.

Consider Your Prescription

Your lens prescription can make a difference when deciding on a pair of frames. If you require bifocals or trifocals, you'll need larger frames to support this type of lens prescription. An optometrist can advise you regarding the best type of frames for your specific prescription.

Consult With Your Experienced Opticians

You'll want the guidance of an experienced optician when choosing the best frames.

Choose the Right Frames for Your Face Shape

Eyeglasses, in addition to correcting your vision, are a great accessory that can complement your everyday style. If you are looking to update your look, or if you are choosing your first pair of glasses, it is important to get the right shape that will be both comfortable and flatterig. There are distinct face shapes, and some frames work better than others, depending on the shape of your face. If you have a round face, the frames that flatter your face shape will probably not look as nice on someone with a more angular bone structure. Face shape guidelines can also help you to narrow down the choices when making your selection.

A good rule of thumb to adhere to when choosing the most flattering shape for your face, whether yours is round, square, heart, or oval shaped. For instance, aviator shaped or oval frames are great for people with square-shaped faces, while rectangular and cat eye frames work great for those with heart-shaped faces.
