Helpful Tips For Choosing The Right Eyeglasses For Your Face Shape 

At our clinic (now with 2 convenient locations!), our optical dispensary offers a huge selection of prescription eyeglasses and sunglasses. We've got plenty of designer frames to make it easy for you to find a pair that fits your budget, style, and face shape.

Not sure what face shape you have? Here are a few of the most common face shapes: 

  • Oval: overall balance with high cheekbones and a slightly narrow chin compared to the forehead
  • Round: the widest and longest points of the face are essentially equal
  • Square: this face shape is all about strong lines, including a wide and well-defined jaw and strong angles in the cheeks and forehead
  • Heart: broad forehead and narrow chin

It's helpful to know what shape your face is when selecting your new eyeglasses because certain frame shapes and sizes look better on different people. Here are a few tips:

  • If you have an oval-shaped face, almost any frame size and style will look good on you. Rectangular or round frames will work, as will light or dark colored frames. Avoid oversized frames that throw off the natural balance of your face.
  • If you have a round face, try wearing square or rectangular glasses that offset the fullness of your cheeks; frames that are wider than they are tall will help elongate your appearance. Avoid small and/or circular shaped glasses.
  • If you have a square face, balance the sharp angles and lines with circular glasses, either round or oval. Your strong features can handle dark and/or thick frames--just avoid thin or light-colored frames that are square or rectangular. 
  • Lastly, if you have a heart-shaped face, balance your upper width by choosing oval or round glasses that aren't too decorative or top-heavy in design. A light and thinner frame looks great with your smaller chin. 

Of course, the type of frames you choose also depends on your personal style and budget. From sporty to chic to ultra-sleek and modern, Sites Vision Clinic has the perfect pair of frames for you. Designer eyewear we carry includes Giorgio Armani, Jimmy Choo, and Marc by Marc Jacobs.
