If you wear eyeglasses, the time will come when you need to get a new pair. However, it can be challenging to find the right glasses for you with so many different pairs available. Luckily there are ways to narrow down your search by working with an optician who understands what frames will best work for your visual and aesthetic needs. At Christensen Eye Care, we are dedicated to helping patients in and around Dodge City have access to the eye care they need, including a wide range of eyewear options to choose from. Here are some important things to consider when choosing your next pair of glasses.


Frame Colors

Eyeglass frames today come in just about every color. It can be hard to narrow the choices down to just a few colors. To start, consider your own coloring. Your skin and hair colors are prominent, and the eyeglasses that you choose should go well with both of these colors. If your frames clash with your hair or skin, the frames will stand out in a bad way. That's why it's important that the frames go well with both of these colors so that you have a look that works well and makes you look your best. 

Frame Shapes

If you have ever looked closely at eyeglass frames, you will see that they are made up of various shapes. The frames of your eyeglasses can be round, oval, square, rectangular, triangular, and cat-eye in shape. Each of these shapes will have a slightly different impact on the way your face looks. Generally, the goal is to make your face look as close as possible to an oval. Consider the shape of your face, which can be a heart, square, rectangular, round, or oval shape. Consider how well each of the frame shapes will go with your face's shape. Which shape will make it look more oval? For instance, a person with a rectangular face shape should choose round frames to make their face look rounder and more like an oval. If your face is round, an oval or rectangular pair can lengthen the look of your face.
