  • How Our Optometrists Can Help You Find the Perfect Pair of Eyeglasses

Are you looking for a new pair of eyeglasses? Our Calgary optometrists have the expertise and knowledge needed to help you find the right pair to suit your face shape and lifestyle.


A properly fitting pair of eyeglasses is not only a great fashion statement, but it’s also critical to ensuring you can see comfortably. In some cases, spectacles that don’t fit properly can make viewing through your lenses difficult. 

Our Calgary eye doctors have the knowledge and expertise needed to help you find the frame that will provide you with the best look and vision. This is done by considering: 

  • Your face shape
  • What part of the lens you’ll be looking through (important for bifocals)
  • The position of the frame on your face
  • How your prescription lenses will look and feel in the frame

Top Factors Involved When Choosing a Pair Of Eyeglasses 

When you need a pair of eyeglasses, it’s important to take the time to find a pair that is right for you. Luckily, you don’t have to do it alone! Our team of friendly and highly knowledgeable Calgary optometrists can help make sure that you follow the right steps to make this important decision. 

Here are some of the factors to consider when choosing eyeglasses: 

1. Your Current Visual Acuity

Eyeglasses primarily serve to correct any vision errors you may have, helping you to see better. This is why it’s so critical to have an eye exam before you select your frames. This ensures an accurate assessment of your current visual acuity, which your optometrists will then use to determine what type and power of lenses to prescribe. 

2. The Shape of Your Face 

Your optometrist will help you find eyeglasses that balance your prominent facial features. For example, if you have a square-shaped face, your eye doctor may suggest selecting round frames, as these will complement your facial features.

3. Your Lifestyle and Personality 

In addition to correcting your vision, your eyeglasses can act as a statement of your personality. If you are creative and outgoing, you can choose spectacles that have bold colours and distinct shapes. 

If you are an athlete, or live an active lifestyle, we can help you choose eyeglasses made of a more sturdy material, or even help determine whether contact lenses could be a better fit for you and your lifestyle.

4. Your Skin Colour

The colour of your skin is one of the most important factors to be considered when you are buying eyeglasses. It’s vital to choose a frame colour that will compliment your skin colour, not flatten it. Here is a basic guide to get you started: 

  • Warm coloured skin tones. These are complimented by colours such as brown, gold, pink, red, yellow, and green. 
  • Cool coloured skin tones. Cool coloured skin tones tend to go well with cool shades such as purple, blue, and grey. 

Your hair and eye colour are important factors too! When choosing eyeglasses, you should also consider your hair and skin tones. To highlight your eyes’ natural colour, make sure to pick a frame that is in the same hue. For a striking appearance, you may want to choose frames that contrast your hair colour.
