How To Choose Glasses

How To Choose Glasses


There are three main points to keep in mind when choosing an eyeglass frame for your face shape:

  • Eye wear should enhance your personal best features.
  • The frame shape should contrast with your face shape.
  • The frame size should be in scale with your face shape.

Steps in choosing glasses

  • Get an eye exam: Don’t squint, but keep your eyes open and relax. If you can’t see something with your eyes relaxed and open, you can’t see it.
  • Choose the shape: People with an oval face should try rectangular glasses, and those with square faces should go for oval or circular glasses.
  • Consider your eyelash length: Long eyelashes can brush against the lenses, which is extremely uncomfortable.
  • Try on many different shapes, styles and colours.
  • Eye glass frame material: Choose the right frame material; it should  be lightweight, flexible, strong and hypoallergenic.

Eyeglass lenses

  • Anti-reflective coating to remove glare.
  • Aspheric lenses: They have better vision than ordinary lenses.
  • Bifocal and multifocal lenses: Choose right for your needs, depending on whether you sit at the computer, play golf, etc.
  • Eyeglass lens coating: ARC, scratch resistant coating, anti-fog, and UV lens treatment are options that enhance vision and appearance.
  • High definition lenses for sharper vision.
  • High index lenses: For thick prescription eyeglasses, try lenses in high index material.
  • Photo chromatic lenses: These are clear indoors and darken in sunlight (transition lenses).
  • Polycarbonate and trivex lenses: These are lighter and more impact resistant than regular plastic lenses. They are suitable for kids and sport persons.
  • Reading glasses: They are suitable for people above the age of 40.
