ophthalmology services Marion, ILEyeglasses are an accessory that have the ability to make a great first impression. With all of the sizes, styles, and colors available, knowing what eyeglasses to choose can be overwhelming. When choosing your next pair of frames, here are three important questions to ask yourself during the process.

What type of personality do I have?

Whether you like it or not, the type of frames you wear can say loads about your personality. If you want to make a point about your carefree and fun side, opt for frames that have fun embellishments or come in your favorite color. If you don’t want to wear your fun frames to work, you can always buy a second and more professional style for the workweek.

What type of lifestyle do you lead?

These days there are eyeglasses for every type of lifestyle. From biking to gaming, rest assured that there is something out there that matches your everyday life perfectly.

What is your face shape?

The type of face shape you have is a key factor in choosing your next pair of eyeglasses. If you have a round face, go for frames that are rectangular or square. These shapes will make your face appear more balanced and slim. If you have an oval face, opt for frames with a strong bridge and geometric shape. If you have a square face, oval or round frames will fit your look perfectly. If you are one with a diamond face shape, oval frames and cat eyeglasses will work great for you. For those with a heart shaped face, round or square frames with curved edges will do the trick. The key to remember is that opposites attract: go for the frames that are the opposite of your face shape.
