Book Appointment

With a mind boggling variety of eye wear available on the marketing, selecting one can be a frustratingly daunting undertaking. While some people immediately make a decision once they spot the right one, some take hours before they finally decide. What is it about eyeglasses that make people want to think for hours? The answer lies in the way you look. Yes, nowadays, eyeglasses not only help correct your vision and help you see well, but they are also a popular accessory. There are some people who do not even have eyesight issues yet they wear eyeglasses simply because they look good wearing them.

The market for eyeglasses therefore has to adapt to the increasing demand for variety. Now you can find eyeglasses in different shapes and sizes along with a range of colours to choose from. Before you pick the one for yourself, remember to the following tips that will help you make a sound decision:

1.     Does it Suit the Shape of your face?

You already know what shape your face is, the only thing you need to do is determine what kind of eyeglasses will go well with the shape of your face. For example, if you have a round face, going for round eyeglasses will not help your situation. Instead you should go with rectangular shapes with a thick frame design.

2.     Does the Colour Match your Skin Tone?

As much as the shape of your face matters, your skin tone is just as important when it comes to considering glasses for yourself. The trick is to select a colour that is the closest to your skin tone. If you have a warm skin tone, you should try out frames that have brown, honey or olive green shades. They will bring out the glow in your face and make you look splendid. If you have a lighter skin tone, you should try black, silver or purple shades.

3.     Do the Glasses Match your Lifestyle?

As weird as they may sound, people actually intend on buying glasses that somehow match their lifestyles. For example, a coach for a football team will buy glasses that have a clip on and are easily worn as they do not have enough time. Gamers tend to buy glasses that have stylish frames and a neon effect to them. Office goers have glasses that are business and official like. There are lots of varieties when it comes to eyeglasses and you should definitely consider buying the type that best suit your needs at home or outside.

4.     Do the Glasses Express your Personality?

Glasses also have the power to define you as a person. By looking at the type of glasses a person is wearing, you can tell a little bit about their personality. A fun-loving person will buy glasses that showcase a vibrant side and a serious person will do the opposite. Do not confuse this as a way of judging a person, but consider it as a first impression. The type of glasses you wear will give the other person a good first impression of who you are.
