Different Glasses for Different Face Shapes

Wearing glasses by far is the most popular way to correct refraction problems, but people who find wearing glasses difficult and disorienting opt to have Lasik surgery from a well-known and trusted laser eye surgery centre, such as Optical Express. Lasik surgery is quick, painless and corrects the vision nearly instantaneously. However, many people are still not aware of the advantages of Lasik surgery that’s why wearing glasses remains popular.

Glasses can be regarded as topmost personal accessory. Now that many companies introduce stylish and innovative glasses, it becomes a fashion statement. When looking for glasses, people consider not just the style but also the design that will complement their face shape.

How to get the face shape? If you do not know your face shape, pull your hair back then outline your face with a soft eyebrow pencil or lip liner.  What shape do you see; oval, heart, round, square or oblong? What do you think is the design and style of glasses that will look good on you?

Below are the different glasses for different face shapes that can serve as guide when looking for perfect glasses.

face shapes

Oval
A person with oval-shaped face is lucky as oval shape is considered ideal. Because of its almost perfect alignment, just about any style of eyeglasses will be flattering.

Heart (wide forehead and narrow chin)
Aviators and dark framed is not recommended as it will enhance the width of the forehead.  Softly curved wraparounds with twisted side detail would be perfect because it won’t draw attention to the forehead.

Round
Dark-colored rectangular styles with straight or angular lines will contrast the round-shaped face by making the face look slim. Avoid round frames with designs and/or embellishments because it will make the face look wider.

Square (wide forehead and jaw lines with strong angles)
Round frames, circular lenses, narrow oval or frames with more width than depth will soften the face’s angularity.

Oblong (long face with long lines along the cheek)
Wider square frame is a good counterpoint to oblong-shaped face. This will make the face appear shorter.
