Sometimes, trying on eyeglasses displayed on the shelf of an eye care services center may not give you the results you want. For one, the frames might not suit the shape of your face.
This article takes a look at some known face shapes and the corresponding eyeglass frames for each:
The features of an oval-shaped face include a rounded hairline and narrow chin. An oval face is considered the most ideal because it’s well-proportioned. Eyeglass frames that are as wide or wider than the broadest part of the face are the most suitable. Eyeglasses that are walnut-shaped are good choices.
Also known as the base-up triangle shape, its features include a wide top third and a narrow bottom third. Eyeglass frames with a wider bottom are the most suitable because they reduce the width of the top part of the face. Those with thin, light-colored frames are good choices as well.
Features of such a face shape include a prominent jawline to go along with a broad forehead, as well as a near-equal face width and length on all sides. Narrow styles of eyeglass frames, as well as those with more width than depth, can help soften the face shape’s intense outline.
This face shape has similar widths on the forehead, cheekbones and jawline, creating a prominent chin. Eyeglasses for people with this face shape should be those that will give the face a close resemblance to the ideal oval shape. Frames that are tall from top to bottom with decorative temples are helpful.
