Optical Services at Eye and Contact Lens Center
Eyeglasses or sunglasses are some of your most worn and practical accessories. They provide critical vision correction, sun protection and treat various optometric issues. When choosing your glasses at Eye and Contact Lens Center in Kirkland, WA, we will guide you through selecting the frames that best compliment your features while ensuring the lenses you need to see the world around you.
Choosing the Best Pair for Your Face Shape
The eyeglasses or sunglasses you pick should be as unique as you are. Our expert team will help you determine your face shape and advise which styles best suit you. As a general guideline, here are some things to consider when selecting your next set of frames.
The characteristics of a square face are equal parts length and width of the face. Your frames should make your face look longer. Consider curved or oval-shaped frames, which soften your face's angles.
Generally, an oblong face is longer than it is wide, and you should look for frames that shorten the face and create a break in its length. Round frames with solid vertical lines or low-triangle shapes best complement this face shape.
An oval face has balanced proportions, with a forehead wider than the chin and high cheekbones. To enhance your face's natural proportions, choose frames as wide or wider than the broadest part of your face, and diamond or rectangular shapes are particularly flattering.
A round face has an equal length and width. Therefore, prioritize frames that add length to your face, such as angular or narrow ones. Typically, round frames on this face shape exaggerate its curves and roundness.
High, dramatic cheekbones with a narrow eye line and jawline are typical characteristics of a diamond-shaped face. It is the rarest of all shapes and best suited to oval frames, highlighting the eyes and cheekbones. Choose frames with detailing and distinctive brow lines, such as rimless or cat-eye shaped.
