How To Pick The Right Frames For Your Face Shape

Are you wondering how to find the right pair of eyeglasses for your face shape? At our Calgary eye clinic, we have a wide range of high quality eyewear, including designer eyeglasses, to suit all your unique needs.

When it comes to finding the perfect pair of eyeglasses, a lot depends on your individual face shape. At our Calgary eye clinics, we encourage our patients to try our wide variety of designer and other eyeglasses, but narrowing down your choices in advance can help save you a lot of time and stress.

When choosing eyeglasses, here are 3 main points you should consider:

  • Your eyeglasses should reflect your best feature
  • The shape of your eyeglass frame should always contrast your face shape
  • The size of your frame should be in scale with your face size

How To Find The Perfect Pair of Eyeglasses For Your Face Shape

Have you ever wondered why some eyeglasses look so attractive on display, but not as great when you try them on? Your face shape plays a significant role in whether a certain style of frame will look good on you, and understanding the basics can help you find the perfect pair.

At our Calgary eye clinics, we carry a wide range of designer and other eyeglasses to suit all face shapes, skin tones, and personal styles. Our highly experienced team is passionate about finding you a pair of eyeglasses that perfectly suits your needs.

Here are some tips on how to find the right eyeglasses for your face shape:

1. Oval Face Shape

If you have an oval shaped face, this means that your face has slightly wider cheekbones and gently narrows at the forehead and jaw. Due to the balanced proportions, an oval face shape is the most versatile to fit.

What to Consider: To maintain the natural balance of your face, look for eyeglasses that are as wide as (or slightly wider than) the broadest part of your face. Glasses that are walnut shaped which are neither too deep nor narrow work best.

2. Square Face Shape

Square faces are slightly wider than they are tall, with a strong and sculpted jaw. A square shape face usually has a broad forehead and strong jaw, with the width and length of the face being roughly equal.

What to Consider: If you want your square face to look softer and longer, consider trying on frames that are wider than they are long, narrow style frames, and narrow ovals.

3. Round Face Shape

If you have a round face, that means that your face has curved lines and the width and length of your face are roughly in the same proportion, with no sharp angles. People with a round shape face usually have a curved chin and plump cheeks.

What to consider: The best type of eyeglasses for people with round faces are those that are rectangular, as they can help sharpen softer features. Opt for frames that have bold or angular lines and which have a bottom frame that hits just above your cheekbones.

4. Heart Face Shape

Heart shaped faces are those that are wider at the forehead and which sweep down into a pointed chin. Some heart shaped faces can be long, while others may be rounded.

What to consider: Rounder frames will balance the wider forehead associated with this face shape. You may also consider using thin, light-coloured frames to compliment the unique shape of your face. For men with heart-shaped faces, rimless glasses could be the ideal choice.
