At NOVA Vision Center, we offer a wide range of eyeglasses that come in different styles, colors and designs. With so many options, it can be difficult to make a decision. In today’s post, your reliable eye doctor discusses four things to consider before choosing a pair of eyeglasses.
1. The Shape of Your Face
Look for eyeglasses that help balance your prominent facial features. If you have a square-shaped face, for example, you may want to try round frames. This style will complement your facial features.
2. Your Current Visual Acuity and Health
Eyeglasses primarily serve to correct vision errors, helping you see better. This is why a comprehensive eye exam is a must before we write you a prescription. This ensures an accurate assessment of your current visual acuity, which we will use as a guide to determine what type and power of lenses to prescribe.
3. Your Eye, Hair and Skin Color
Your eyes, hair and skin tones are also important factors to consider. To highlight your eyes’ natural color, pick a frame that’s in the same hue. For a striking appearance, choose specs in contrast to your hair color. People with cool skin undertones often look great in jewel-colored frames, while individuals with warm complexions may find neutral-colored specs a good choice.
4. Your Lifestyle and Personality
More than a vision correction option, think of your eyeglasses as an extension of yourself. They are a great way to express your unique personality. Show off your creativity by donning specs with bold colors and distinct embellishments. If you are an athlete or lead an active lifestyle, we can help you choose eyeglasses made of polycarbonate or with anti-scratch coatings for additional visual protection.
