How to Choose the Right Eyeglasses for You

Your eyeglasses are one of the first things people notice about you when you meet them. When choosing new frames, you have the opportunity to influence people before you even say a word. Make sure your eyeglasses are making the right statement with these tips from our optometry team at Advanced Eyecare Specialists in Falmouth.

Eyeglasses

Color Options

Eyeglasses come in various colors and materials. If you want to share your bright personality, consider choosing red frames. If you like a pop of color but want to be a bit more subtle, blue and green are great options, especially in darker shades like navy and emerald. For a professional setting, you can always opt for a classic black frame or choose from a neutral metal frame.

Style & Shape

The shape of the lens opening, as well as the plastic or metal material surrounding it, can vary greatly. Larger, square-shaped frames give an academic look. Smaller, more rectangular frames will blend in better with your natural features. You can also opt for rimless frames that are barely noticeable on your face. Circular and oval frames are also available.

Also, pay attention to the nosepiece when choosing your eyeglasses. Do you prefer to have an adjustable nose pad attached to the frame with a small piece of metal? Or do you like to have the nosepiece built-in with the rest of the frame?

Your Lifestyle

How you live your life can affect which type of eyeglasses you select. For those who sit at a computer and look at screens all day, you'll want to make sure to have blue light filtering lenses to protect your eyes from strain. Athletes and active children need to have sturdy glasses to handle their daily activities. If you spend a lot of time outdoors, you may be interested in transition lenses or prescription sunglasses.

Doctor's Recommendation

Depending on your prescription, our eye doctor in Falmouth will be able to make a recommendation if you're having trouble deciding. For example, if you have a strong prescription that requires thicker lenses, you may want to choose frames made of plastic with smaller lenses. This way, you can minimize the weight of the frames from a heavy piece of glass, and they'll be more sturdy than thin metal frames.
