Picking the Right Frames
Whether you have prescription eyeglasses or sunglasses the part of your glasses that are going to make the biggest impact to the rest of the world is your frames. At Eye Doctors of Arizona, we have a wide variety of frames to choose from, and whether you visit us in our downtown Phoenix, AZ location, our North Phoenix location or our Biltmore location, we aim to make sure that you leave with the best frames for you.
The First Step to Great Glasses
The first step to having a great pair of glasses is to see your eye doctor. At Eye Doctors of Arizona, you'll find an optometrist committed to providing you with the right lenses and the right frames for your face, as well as three ophthalmologists that can address various medical challenges your eyes may be facing.
Balancing Style, Budget and Convention
Once the Doctor of Optometry determines your prescription, it is time to pick the right frames. According to your face shape, there are different shapes of frames that can accentuate your face to help you look and feel great.
Factoring Face Shape
Convention says that round faces look best in square or rectangle shaped frames. Oval faces should have a frame with a strong bridge that has a strong geometric feel. Square faces look good in oval or round eyeglasses. Cat eye glasses are a nice look for a diamond face. bottom heavy frames are nice for heart-shaped faces with broad foreheads.
When it comes to the color of your frames, skin tone is a good guide. Warm skin tones do best with warm colors, such as tortoise colors, brown and green, while cooler skin with pink undertones looks good in silver, black, pink and purple.
The material of frames is also important. Athletes need frames that are more pliable and resist breakage when they are active. There are also frames designed for people who spend a lot of the time in front of a computer screen. These will reduce the amount of eye strain put onto your eyes from the blue light of the monitor.
The style factor is important for many people. Some focus on affordability, while others look to big-name designers to help their glasses represent who they are. At Eye Doctors of Arizona, we carry many popular brands including
- Hugo Boss
- Jimmy Choo
- Michael Kors
- Vera Wang and
- Vogue to name a few
