Fashion styles seen on the catwalk but not on the streets.
The shape of your face is an important consideration when choosing spectacle frames, as each shape, whether it be round, square, oval or irregular, suits certain frame shapes and styles. A knowledge of frame shapes can help to minimalise the appearance of some unwanted facial characteristics such as a plump face or long nose.
High cheekbones can be emphasized by slightly upswept frame styles
Noses can appear shorter with frames having a lower or coloured bridge and
Heart shaped faces appear better in shallow oval frames.
Someone with close set eyes should choose a frame with a clear bridge and an extended decorative outer (temporal) area.
A round face requires the opposite to that above to minimize facial width.
A patient with a square face, a wide chin and angular jaw, will need a frame that makes the face appear shorter such as a frame that is wider than the face.
FRAME COLOUR AND MATERIALS
The spectacle frame colour is also important. Gold has a generally warm appearance although silver sometimes tones in with silvery hair. With the greater variety of colouring available today, frames in grey, black or gun-metal colour, will often look better on people with black or grey hair.
For pale complexions, lightweight metal frames and those with a hint of colour are usually preferred. Dark complexions look better with gold, silver or clear spectacle frames.
If you have an allergy to some frame materials such as nickel or cellulose acetate choose titanium, stainless steel or special inert plastics materials such as Optyl or SPX.
