Select Your Frames


A square face is often characterized by a strong jaw line, a broad forehead, and a wide chin and cheekbones. The width and length of the face are close to being equal. Frames should be selected to make the face look longer and to soften the square angles of the face. Choose frames that are slightly curved (like an oval shape) and that have more horizontal than vertical real estate.


The oval face is identifiable by its balanced proportions. The forehead is slightly wider than the chin and cheekbones are high. Frames should complement the natural proportions of the oval. Choose frames that are wide or wider than the broadest part of the face and that follow your brow line. Often, diamond or rectangular shapes work best for oval shapes.


Although fairly similar to an oval shape, an oblong face is longer than it is wide. The ideal frames will shorten the face by creating a break in the length of the face. Choose frames that have depth and a low bridge to shorten the nose. Try frames that are round, deep, have low-triangle shapes, or that have strong vertical lines.


A round or full face is characterized by having the same width and length. For round faces, frames that add length to the face often work best. Frames that lengthen the face are typically angular, narrow and are wider than they are deep. It is best to avoid round style frames as these will exaggerate the roundness and curves of the face.


A heart shaped face looks like a heart or a triangle with the point facing down. The forehead is very wide and cheekbones are high while the face narrows towards the chin. Counterbalance the narrow chin by choosing frames that are wider at the bottom. Generally, light colored and rimless frames work best, although aviator, butterfly and low-triangle styles also work well.


A base-down triangle face has a narrower forehead with full cheeks and a broad chin. To offset a broad chin, select frames that widen at the top. Great selections include frames that have heavy color accents and detail on the top part of the frames. Cat-eye shapes also work well to add width and emphasize the narrow upper part of the face.


A diamond shaped face is often characterized by high, dramatic cheekbones with a narrow eye line and jaw line. This shape is the rarest of all the shapes. Oval frames that are soft in style typically work best to highlight the eyes and cheekbones. Select frames that have detailing, distinctive brow lines, are rimless or a cat-eye shape for best results.

Schedule Regular Eye Exams for the Best Long-Term Vision and Eye Health

The National Eye Institute and the American Academy of Ophthalmology both recommend adults receive eye screenings every other year until age 65, at which point they should switch to annual exams. Children should have yearly exams until they are in school, and then they should have at least bi-annual exams after that. You should schedule an eye exam sooner if you have any concerning symptoms. These include:

•             blurry vision

•             difficulty focusing

•             double vision

•             eye pain

•             frequent squinting to see print or objects clearly

•             headaches

•             problems with night vision

•             red or watery eyes

You can choose a new pair of glasses right in our office if it turns out that you or your child need them.

Eye Conditions You Should Get Checked Out

Computer vision syndrome is rampant in our modern age due to people spending more than eight hours a day in front of a computer for work. Common symptoms associated with computer vision syndrome include headaches, eye strain, and fatigue. We will evaluate your symptoms and let you know what you can do to relieve them.

Cataracts are an extremely common eye condition in older adults. Cataracts produce cloudy vision due to the proteins in your eyes breaking down. Things will look blurry, less colorful, or hazy when this happens. We offer multiple solutions to this problem.

Glaucoma is a serious eye disorder that can rob you of your sight if not diagnosed and treated early. Severe eye pressure is one of the leading signs of glaucoma, so do not hesitate to come and see us if you experience it.
