TIPS TO FIND THE BEST-FITTING FRAMES

Depending on your face shape and hairstyle, you can choose the frames that complement your personality. But how? So, here’s a quick guide to find that perfect pair of eyeglasses and sunglasses.

For narrow face shape: Choose wider frames like walnut shaped that are neither too deep or too narrow.

For round face: Prefer contrasting and angular shapes like rectangular frames to help elongate the face.

For square face: Try oval and rectangular styles to soften a strong jaw line and lengthen the face.

For diamond face: Choose rimless, oval or cat-eye shaped frames to soften the cheekbones and highlight the eyes.

If your face doesn’t fit exactly into any of these categories – an easy way to select your frames is to analyse whether your face silhouette is more about angles or curves. Because, face shapes can be hybrid. And then, you need to opt for glasses in a contrasting shape.

IT'S NOT ONLY ABOUT STYLE

DISCOVER THE MOST FUNCTIONAL OPTIONS WHEN IT COMES TO SUNGLASSES

Tips to add some more substance to your style:

  • Not all sunglasses offer protection from harmful UV rays. If you thought it is the tint which acts as a shield, then it is not. So, do not forget to check the UV protection label while buying sunglasses.
  • Polarization is the greatest innovation in sunglasses that cuts light reflections and enable your eyes to see clearly and comfortably. The visual difference is amazing compared to ordinary sunglasses. Polarized sunglasses are ideal to be worn in conditions or environment involving very bright sunlight or strong glare reflected off from surface of the water or snow.
  • If you want to wear sunglasses for sports activities, analyse the shape of the frame and the lens material. Choose the best impact resistance and a protective wrap around frame that will give greater coverage to your eyes.
  • Besides style, color of the lenses is also vital. And every color has its own importance. Like grey lenses give a very neutral perception of colors, while brown lenses enhance color contrasts. Grey-green lenses provide more natural vision and likewise, there are other tints that come with a value proposition.

THINGS APPEAR BLUR AT A CLOSE DISTANCE?

If this happens, here is an easy solution:

  • Test by yourself, your close distance vision and order the lens power you need.
  • Readers do not need special adjustment.
  • You can buy multiple pairs and styles and keep them at different places- near the bed, at your desk, in the kitchen.

THE RIGHT VISION INDOORS AND OUTDOORS

DO YOU KNOW ABOUT ADAPTIVE LENSES?

How many times in a day our eyes need to adjust to continuous light changes? How many times we are dazzled because we can’t/ don’t change our eyeglasses for sunglasses? Conveniently

  • Variable tint lenses are the solution. They help you see conveniently in any light. They automatically darken when exposed to an outdoor environment where there is sunlight. While they remain clear indoors just like your regular prescription glasses.
  • It is a convenient and comfortable solution which reduces eyestrain caused by constant light changes happening from indoor to outdoor and vice-versa.
  • We find Transitions® are the best. They come in various tints and look good in most frames.
