Choosing the perfect pair of eyeglasses can either make or break your look. They’re prominently positioned on your face which means everyone you meet will see them. Pick a bad pair and you could be open for ribbing from your workmates. Pick a great pair and it’ll feel like they’ve always been a part of your body.
The easiest way to get help with choosing a pair of glasses is to seek the help of an optometrist’s office. A lot of people will get their prescription from the optometrist and then order glasses through another source like a discount retailer, but when you’re getting a new pair and really want a great fit there’s no comparison to the knowledge and personalization available at the office.
An eye doctor can help you determine whether or not you need bifocals and can recommend which type of lens will be appropriate for your needs. But for aesthetic considerations there’s usually an assistant or two that work in the office who help customers pick their perfect glasses. These assistants really know their stuff; they help people try on frames all day every day so they have a feel for what frames would complement your face.
You should consider your fashion sense and personality when choosing a pair of eyeglasses. A lot of people are drawn to bright, trendy frames right now because they look chic. Unfortunately these frames can fall out of fashion quickly. They also tend to be very limiting for your wardrobe; a bright red pair of glasses might look great, but do they actually go with most of your clothes? The best choice for your frames is a pair that flatters your face and fits your personality. Whether you want a pair that will make a statement or want them to practically disappear on your face, choosing your frames at an optometrist’s office will ensure that you get exactly what you want and need.
