Choosing The Right Glasses

Eyeglasses have become a real fashion statement. When it comes to choosing the right glasses, there are a few things to keep in mind. Our optometrists at Michigan Eyecare Institute are your one-stop shop to explore our wide variety of eyeglass frames. If you live in or around Southfield, Livonia, or Dearborn and are considering new glasses, contact our eye doctors at Michigan Eyecare Institute to schedule an eye exam to ensure you get the prescription you need.

Face Shape

One of the most important factors when choosing the right glasses is the shape of your face. Faces come in seven different shapes:

  • Oblong
  • Round
  • Square
  • Diamond
  • Oval
  • Triangle
  • Heart

The glasses that flatter an oval face may be wrong for a square face and vice-versa. The first step is to identify the shape of your face and then determine the glasses that are most flattering to that shape.

Styles of Glasses

Prescription eyeglasses come in a variety of styles. Consider your lifestyle carefully when choosing the style of frame and the material. If you have an active lifestyle, fragile glasses are not for you. If you are a fashionista, trendy is the way to go. Retro is always in style and who can resist a pair of aviator glasses?

Choosing the Right Color

Matching your skin tone is as important as choosing the right style for your face shape. Skin tones come in warm and cool tones and require different colored eyeglass frames to be flattering. If you are a warm tone, avoid contrasting colors like black, white, or pastels. Stick to colors like tortoiseshell or light browns. If you are a cool tone, you want bolder colors like silver, black or purple.
