How To Find The Right Frame For Your Eyeglasses

When finding the right pair of eyeglasses, it’s important to take the time to choose the perfect frame. However, because there are so many styles and materials available, the process can become quite overwhelming.

The good news? Your optometrist can work with you to find a frame that perfectly suits your budget, lifestyle, and most importantly, face shape.

If you are looking for a new pair of eyeglasses, here’s some information to help you find the right frame:


Choosing the Style of Your Frame

Today, there is a huge range of frame styles to choose from, and whatever your specific tastes and lifestyle, you can find something to suit you.

  1. Full-Rim Frames. Full rim frames are heavy and robust, and work well for most prescriptions. If you’re looking to make a bold statement with your eyeglasses, you might want to consider a full rim frame.
  2. Rimless. Do you have sensitive skin, wear your eyeglasses for a long time, or want a more subtle look? Rimless frames are extremely lightweight and offer patients’ a minimalist appearance.
  3. Sem-Rimless Frames. If rimless frames are too subtle for you, then you may want to consider semi-rimless frames. They provide more definition and color options.
  1. Half-Eye Frames. Do you need a second pair of glasses for reading or other hobbies? Your optometrist may suggest buying a half-eye frame for these activities as they allow for unrestricted distance vision.


Choosing Your Frame Material

The second step in finding the right frame, is choosing the type of material that is best for you. Your options include:

  1. Titanium and Stainless Steel. These materials are extremely strong and reliable, but also lightweight. This makes them perfect for patients with sensitive skin and who are hypoallergenic.
  1. Plastic. Plastic frames are growing in popularity, not only because they provide greater comfort for wearers, but they also come in a huge range of bold styles and colors.
  2. Monel Metal. This is a lightweight and corrosion resistant material and it also comes in the widest variety of color and style options.
  3. Carbon Fibre. Are you extremely active? Are you looking for eyeglasses of the highest quality, that were created using the latest technology? Carbon-fibre is a cutting edge textile that is also one of the most flexible, durable, and lightweight materials on the market.
