How to Find the Right Eyeglasses for You

If you need to wear glasses, it can be hard to find your perfect pair. There are a lot of choices when it comes to eyewear, but there are ways that you can narrow down those choices and find a pair that is right for you. If you need eyeglasses in the Kirkland or Renton area, visit our team at Eye and Contact Lens Center, so we can help you find the frames that are perfect for you. Here are some important things to remember when choosing your next pair of eyeglasses.

Choosing the Color

If you are like most people, you have a couple of favorite colors and may gravitate toward frames with those colors. However, that shouldn't be how you choose the color of your frames. Instead, look at how the color goes with your hair and skin. Hold up the frames to both so that you can make sure that the color compliments your natural tones. The colors should look good with your hair and face and not clash with either.

Choosing the Shape

The shape is a significant indicator of whether or not a pair of frames is right for you. In general, the goal of choosing a shape is to make your face look more ovular. If you have a face with a shape other than oval, it can be perceived differently when you have a certain eyeglass frame shape. For instance, if your face is round, getting rectangular or oval frames can help your face to look more ovular. On the other hand, if you have a square face, rectangular or round glasses may make it look more like an oval. Also, pay attention to how narrow or wide the frames are. The size can help to balance certain features. For instance, if you have a wide jaw, a wide frame can help balance that feature for a more harmonious look.
