Spectacle and Eyeglass Frames
You might not get to choose the prescription of your lenses; however, you can choose your frames. If you are located in the Logan Central, Springwood, Daisy Hill, or nearby area and looking for new frames feel free to visit us; we have a wide variety of spectacle frames available.
Choosing the right frames
There are a few technical aspects to selecting frames. For example, certain frames may allow more light to enter the lens. A trained optician can assist you with making sure you get the best type of frames. Technicalities aside, choosing the right frames for you has a lot to do with your personal preference.
The 7 most common facial shapes are oval, heart (aka inverted triangle), long (aka oblong), round, square, diamond, and pear (aka triangular).
Typically people with oval faces can get away with most any frame. Many of our patients with rectangle faces are happiest with large, square frames with decorative edges. Some people with square faces enjoy round or oval glasses to reduce angular appearance.
Hair colour, eye colour, and skin tone are always a factor when selecting the frame colour of your new glasses.
Some of our patients like eyeglass frames that match their skin tone. This is usually the most important or first factor used in selecting spectacle frames, and complexions fall into a 'cool' or 'warm' undertone.
There are a wide variety of eye colours. People usually want a frame colour that will complement their eye colour.
Hair colour is also an important factor. Hair colours are also considered warm or cool. As a brief example, people with brown hair and dark undertones may like black, blue, or pink frames, and people with brown hair and light undertones may select red, cream white, green or purple frames.
