When selecting a new pair of eyeglasses, picking out the perfect set of frames is important. The right set of frames can provide comfort, safety, appearance, and overall help improve your vision. 

As you select a pair of frames consider these factors: face shape, color, and lifestyle. 

Our faces vary person to person, so not every set of frames will help enhance our look. It’s important to understand the type of face you have, whether you have a round face, diamond, square, or oval. The key to finding the right set of frames is to remember that opposites attract. Your frames should bring contrast and symmetry to your prominent features and complement your appearance. 

Selecting the best color for your frames also depends on your face, or more specifically your skin tone. If you have a warm skin tone (yellow, brown, or golden cast to your skin) stay away from pastel colored frames. Instead look at browns, golden colors, olive green, and others. 

If you have a cool skin tone (pink or blue undertones), avoid colors that wash you out. Silver, black, blue, purple, or other colors will complement your features. 

Consider your lifestyle too. If you are an active person, look for Flexon frames in order to protect against bends or if they fall. If you are a professional, then stick with business appropriate frame styles. 

Lastly, consider the types of lenses that are available and what will fit your needs. If you need or purchase polycarbonate lenses, high-index plastic, or standard plastic lenses, they may not fit in certain frames.

And make sure you have the right set of lenses is the most important component of your eyeglasses!
