Find the Perfect Frames with a Glasses Consultant


Understand Your Needs

Understanding your needs is an essential step when shopping for the perfect frames. A glasses consultant can help you narrow down the wide variety of available frames by asking questions about your lifestyle and style preferences. They can also provide advice and expertise on frame shapes, sizes and colors to ensure you find a perfect pair of frames.

Understanding your needs is the first step to finding the perfect frames for you.

Identify your face shape

Identifying your face shape is the first step to finding the perfect glasses frames. Our glasses consultants have extensive knowledge of face shapes and their associated glasses styles, enabling them to suggest the perfect pair for you. The most common face shapes are round, square, oval, heart, and diamond.

  • Round – If you have a round face shape, try angular frames with sharper edges that will provide contrast to rounded features and help soften your look. Look for a style that breaks up the fullness of your round cheeks and chin.
  • Square – If you have a square face shape, keep in mind that symmetry is essential! Try soften angles while maintaining balance with frames on an oval or rounded shape. Round or semi-round lenses will achieve this nicely!
  • Oval – If your forehead is slightly wider than your chin and your jawline maintains smooth curves especially at softer angles like smiles – congratulations–you’re an oval-face holder! Stick with frames that are equal or slightly larger for balanced proportions around the cheekbones may complement your facial features nicely.
  • Heart – Choose styles with low temples (the part of the frame which extends down over the ears), wide frames on top that draw attention downward away from the forehead towards those luscious cheekbones. Try something angular in shapes like upswept cat-eye or aviator combinations for a timeless classic look!
  • Diamond – Frames that are relatively wider than they are tall help bring attention to those beautiful cheekbones again! Balance is key–select frames which anchor at both temples helping to elongate as well as break up facial features attractively; think square brows (but not TOO sharp) or oversized cat eye designs with good balance throughout–they would be ideal for those gorgeous larger than life diamonds out there!

Consider your lifestyle

When choosing eyeglasses, it is important to think about the lifestyle that you lead and the activities in which you participate. Do you work indoors, or do you spend most of your days outdoors? Are you physically active while wearing glasses? All of these factors should be considered as they can impact the quality and durability of a frame.

Indoor vs Outdoor – If your days are mainly spent working indoors, comfort and style are likely important factors when selecting frames. You want frames that best complement your look and feel good. On the other hand, if you spend a lot of time outdoors, look for frames that are more durable and come with a protective coating such as a scratch-resistant lens treatment.

Physical Activity – Activities such as running, tennis or golf all require frames that can keep up with movement, typically titanium or flexible plastic. Selecting frames made from material like metal will provide sturdier support for active lifestyles. If eyeglasses are not for sport purposes but rather for everyday wear, select eyeglass lenses with anti-reflective coating or special tints to make them easier to wear outside in bright sunlight.

Gender – Gender plays an important role in both form factor and practicality when selecting eyeglasses. If someone wears their glasses for reading often or needs prescription sunglasses then progressive lenses may be needed regardless of gender. Men generally prefer bigger frame styles while women select smaller ones – this also applies to frame colors; men often choose bold colors while women opt for more subtle hues. However, this may vary depending on where you live and personal preference so consider what style suits you better before making a selection!

Determine your budget

When it comes to finding the perfect frames for your eyewear, it can be helpful to have a guide available. A glasses consultant can help you understand what types of frames would suit your style, personality and budget.

An important step in finding the perfect pairs of glasses is determining your budget. It is essential to consider how much money you are willing to spend per pair and if you are able to accommodate multiple pairs in order to cater towards various occasions or activities. There are many different types of frames available and depending on the specific materials or features desired, your budget may need to be adjusted.

In addition, researching what type of frame will fit specific lens types such as single vision, bi-focal and progressive lenses may be necessary when deciding on a price point for glasses. For more information on how these lens types vary in the overall cost of a pair of eyeglasses, a glasses consultant should be consulted in order to guarantee that you have all the information you need before making a decision.

Choose the Right Frames

Finding the perfect frames for your glasses is a real challenge. With all the different styles, shapes, and sizes available, it can be hard to decide which option will look best on you. That’s where a glasses consultant comes in.

A glasses consultant is a professional who specially trained to help you choose the perfect frames that suit your face and style.

Let’s look at why you should choose a glasses consultant to help with your next glasses purchase:

Consider the materials

Frames are made from various materials including metal, plastic, nylon and titanium. Each material has its advantages, depending on the shape of your face and personalized style. Metal frame glasses are very lightweight but they may pinch the nose throughout wear, while plastic frames are thicker and more durable but will weigh more. Some people may prefer one type of material over the other.

If you plan on wearing your glasses every day then you should consider longevity when selecting a frame material. Nylon frames tend to last longer than metal or plastic because they are extremely flexible, thus less susceptible to breakage over time.

When trying on frames in the store it’s best to do all activities that require you to use your glasses – such as reading and driving – to see how comfortable they feel before making a purchase. If possible, hold each pair up so that you can check for reflections from the lenses which can cause glare issues when looking at computer screens or outside in bright light. Ultimately, no matter which material you choose for your glasses, it is important that your frames not only look good but also fit comfortably for long periods of time when used for their intended purpose.

Find the right size

The right pair of glasses can bring out your unique style and transform your look. But one of the most important factors to finding the best fit is knowing your size. Finding the proper frames for you isn’t as simple as picking the ones you like, as glasses that are too large or small can make a huge difference in how they look on you. Instead of guessing, working with an experienced optician is your best bet – they will carefully measure your facial features and find frames that are just the right size for your face shape and size.

Size measurements involve a few key metrics:

  • Total width
  • Lens width
  • Bridge size
  • Temple length
  • Frame height

These measurements correspond directly to how a pair of frames will balance on your face and fit around different sized heads, so getting it right is key to finding a perfect fit. By ensuring sizes are properly taken into account at the start of our frame selection process, opticians can turn an overwhelming selection process into one that’s far more streamlined.

Look for the right color and style

When looking for frames, there are a few main factors to consider. From the color and shape of the frame to the fit and material, it’s important to make sure that your glasses are the perfect fit for you.

When it comes to color and style, there are many options available. Choose frames that complement your face shape and personal style. There are metal frames, plastic frames, acetate frames and more – each with their own unique look and feel. If you have an angular face shape it’s recommended you opt for metal or thin plastic frames with sharper edges that can help soften sharp features; while those with softer features should opt for rounder acetate or plastic glasses with a bolder look. Try out different styles to see what looks best on you before settling on one pair!

When selecting lenses, consider lens height as well as width; ideally your glasses should cover the majority of your eyes in order to block out peripheral light that can bother some people when looking at screens or reading. Make sure that the arms of your glasses offer enough flexibility as well – if they don’t quite fit, find adjustable arms or temples that make minor adjustments easier so your glasses can remain in place all day long.

Take time to experiment with different types of materials in order to find ones whose quality will last long-term – some materials may be lighter weight than others but may not hold up over multiple uses without breaking down faster than desired so choose wisely! With so many frames available on the market these days, consulting with a glasses specialist can go a long way towards helping you select the right pair for you – be sure to browse through all options before making decision!

Get Professional Advice

Everyone should have a trusted glasses consultant who can provide invaluable advice when it comes to finding the perfect frames and lenses. They can give tailored advice that will help you find the perfect glasses to suit your needs.

With a qualified consultant, you can find professional advice that will help you make the right decision to meet your individual needs.

Ask your optician for advice

If you’re unsure of which type of frames and lenses are best for your needs, it’s a good idea to consult your optician. A skilled optician can advise you on the latest technology and trends in eyeglasses frames, as well as help you choose the best option among a wide selection of available frames.

When it comes to choosing eyeglasses, there are many factors to consider such as size, fit, style and color. Your optician can help guide you through each step, ensuring that you get the most appropriate pair for your face shape, eye size and prescription. Your optician is also familiar with all the different types of glasses lenses available and can provide advice on which lens type is most suitable for you.

In addition to helping select the aesthetic features of your glasses, such as shape and color, an optician can also provide helpful guidance about specific features that will best suit your needs. For example, if you require multifocal lenses or need transitions lenses that darken in sunlight or polarized lenses that reduce glare then an experienced professional should be able to advise what’s best for you.

It’s important to keep in mind that while eyeglasses have become increasingly fashionable they should still serve a primary purpose: providing clear vision with maximum protection against UV radiation and other potential hazards like dust particles or computer glare. With this in mind it becomes even more instrumental to rely on professional advice when making key decisions about frames and lenses.

Talk to a glasses consultant

One of the best ways to make sure you’re getting the right frame for your face is by going to a glasses consultant. These experts can help you find frames that flatter your look and fit your lifestyle.

At eye care centers, opticians are trained to measure the shape of your face, as well as determine what style of frames will look best on you and provide advice on features like lens tint, frame width and material. Working with an optician provides greater assurance that your new frames will be both stylish and comfortable.

Since face shape plays an important part in selecting glasses, an optician can make recommendations based on the individual qualities of your facial measurements. These professionals can also recommend lenses or coatings that best match the prescription strength of your eyesight needs, so you get optimal clarity for all vision tasks.

In addition to helping you figure out which design elements look good on you, a glasses consultant will be able to let you know about any promotions or discounts available when multiple pairs are purchased at once. Many eyewear retailers offer attractive deals for buying more than one pair at a time – so don’t miss out on this opportunity by neglecting to ask your glasses consultant about it!

Get a second opinion

Getting a second opinion is the best way to make sure you select a good pair of frames that suits your needs. A trained eyeglass consultant can recommend frames based on their experience, but also factor in the shape of your face, facial features, complexion and lifestyle. Eyewear specialists understand what looks good on you and will be able to guide you toward finding the perfect frames.

A knowledgeable glasses consultant can also provide information about which lenses would be best for you, such as single vision lenses or progressive lens that may better suit your vision and/or work demands. Progressive reading glasses are an excellent choice for digital device users or those who have difficulty focusing on small or near objects.

Lastly, don’t overlook eye health considerations when looking for new frames. Educated glasses consultants understand that certain frames may support chronic conditions like dry eye syndrome or computer vision syndrome (the digital eyestrain caused by too much time spent looking at a computer screen). If you suffer from any chronic conditions related to eyesight, consulting with an experienced optician can help prepare you for any special lenses and frame considerations – as well as ensuring that your prescription is properly filled in order to achieve optimal visual comfort.

Make the Final Decision

Choosing the right pair of glasses is an important decision, and one that requires careful consideration. Consulting with a glasses consultant can help you make the best choice. A glasses consultant is expertly trained and can provide you with information and advice to ensure you select the glasses that are right for you.

Let’s look at how a glasses consultant can help you make the final decision when it comes to picking out frames:

Try on different frames

Trying on different frames is one of the most important steps of the glasses buying process. An experienced eyewear consultant will stay with you throughout this process, not only helping you to choose frames that suit your facial shape and features but also giving you honest advice about which styles will look best on you. Even if a pair of eyeglasses looks great on the shelf, there is no guarantee it will look just as good when you try it on.

The shape of your face should be taken into account when selecting glasses frames. Facial features such as forehead, temple length and width, eye size and position need to be considered. If you have a wide forehead, for example, then smaller frames would balance out the look. A narrow face can pull off greater variety with larger frames or round rims doing well to add emphasis to the eyes and cheekbones. An experienced consultant can help identify which frame shapes would work best for your face and advise which styles complement or contrast with certain facial features.

Glasses come in various sizes so that they can fit each person perfectly without being too loose or too tight. This ensures ideal functionality and keeps glasses in place – especially during physical activity or leisurely pursuits like playing sports or going for a stroll outside. Measurements such as frame width, temple length, bridge width and lens height should all be taken into consideration when selecting glasses frames depending on your preferences in terms of both aesthetic style and comfort level. Consulting an expert optician can help make sure those measurements are correct so that the finished product looks great and fits comfortably – ultimately making it easier for you to make that final decision!

Ask for adjustments

Once you have found frames that suit your face, personal style, and budget, try them on once more to double-check the fit. Ask the glasses consultant for frame adjustments if necessary. Your glasses should not be shifting on your nose or sliding down your face when you look up or down. The lenses should be centered in front of each eye; this will largely depend on the bridge size of your frames.

The glasses consultant may be able to adjust the temple arms, which should lightly rest against either side of your head as they travel behind your ears without putting too much pressure. It’s also important to make sure that there are no gaps between your temple arm and where it meets with the frame – otherwise glasses may slip off easily! Additionally, make sure that the shape of the frames complements and accentuates rather than hides or almost completely covers any facial features like eyes and eyebrows. You can even ask for different colored or patterned temple arms for added flair if desired!

Make sure the frames fit comfortably

When trying on glasses, make sure the frames fit on your face comfortably. The frame of the glasses should not sit too low or too high, nor should it feel tight. An experienced glasses consultant can measure your face to ensure the correct frame size for a perfect fit for most face shapes and sizes.

In addition to a comfortable fit, make sure that the frame color complements your facial features, eye color and hair color. A glass consultant can help determine which colors look best with your unique features to ensure you’re confident in your selection. The shape of the lenses should also be taken into consideration – square and round frames are both classic styles, but different styles may flatter certain facial shapes more than others.

When making the final decision, be sure to go with what feels most comfortable to you and will complement your unique style while still working with all of the necessary elements – comfort, color and shape – all of which are key factors in deciding which eyeglasses frames you end up choosing.
