Finding the right pair of glasses for medical or just lifestyle purposes can be a very daunting task.

It could even take the whole day sometimes to decide finally on the type of frame or the color to go for. Mind you these pair of glasses could be around you for a long while and it can become an identifying factor for your personality.

According to experts, the most important aspect of your glasses is not the lens but your frames because it holds the whole glasses together. These guidelines will help you chart your way into purchasing not only quality glasses and sunglasses but ones that are healthy for your eyes.

Know your shape

When choosing a pair of glasses the first thing to do is to figure out the shape of your face. Human faces are either round, oval, heart, or square. You need a mirror to determine the shape. This is done by tracing the outline of your face on the mirror. Usually the frame shape should contrast with your face shape and the frame size should be in scale with your face size.

Know your eye color

A great pair of glasses is one that highlights your best features. For example a grey frame should match your grey eyes. Experts say everyone looks best in his or her own color base.

In our parts of the world most people have either black, brown and sometimes grey coloring therefore your eyewear be it medicated or lifestyle oriented should complement your personal coloring.

Know the trendy looks for the season

Glasses are considered a part of fashion and clothing hence constant update in eye frame trends every season. Staying updated on the big fashion houses and the glasses they churn out could help you in so many ways because they’re quality and popular. You can get a magazine or your optician to help you with the frames that are dominating this season.

Pick a glass that also fits your lifestyle

You should also consider your lifestyle when you go to pick your eyewear. If you work in certain environments opt for plastic frames instead of steel.

Instead of choosing a frame color that will go with everything you wear choose a color that will flatter you and help make a personal style statement.

For example contrasting color schemes can make you look avant-garde and modern. A blue frame with a green jacket will turn heads all over the place or a black frame with a brown tote bag.
