You can use the tips in this article to help you find just the right pair of glasses whether they’re for you, your spouse, or one of your kids. Keep these tips in mind the next time you find yourself at your local optical store.
The Right Frame for the Right Shape Face
When shopping for a new pair of glasses, you’ll need to focus on the shape of the frames. This is the key to finding a pair of glasses that looks good. Here’s what to keep in mind:
Round face shape: If your family member has a round shaped face go with a pair of glasses with a square or rectangular frame.
Square face shape: If you’re shopping for a family member with a square shaped face go for a pair of glasses with a round or oval frame.
Oval face shape: If you need new eyeglasses for someone in your family than pick out a pair of glasses with wide frames.
Heart face shape: If you’re looking for a pair of glasses for a family member with a heart shaped face then get a pair of glasses with a wide frame.
A Pair and a Spare
When you buy a new pair of glasses for yourself or someone in your family you should always consider getting a spare pair of glasses. That’s because you don’t want to have to run out to your local optician every time someone loses or breaks their glasses. The spare pair can be a less expensive frame. After all, it’s just back up.
It Takes All Kinds
There are many different kinds of eyeglass lenses. Here’s a quick breakdown:
Progressive lenses – Used to correct nearsightedness and distance vision. These lenses are also known as bifocals with no lines.
Bifocal lenses – These lenses also correct nearsightedness and distance vision.
Single vision lenses – These kinds of lenses either correct nearsightedness or distance vision, but not both.
