Choosing a new pair of eyeglasses can be fun but also challenging. You want your specs to complement your facial features while also reflecting your personal style. Vienna Eyecare Center offers a large selection of frames in various colors and styles to address your needs and match your preferences. Here are four factors to consider when selecting a new pair of glasses:
1. Your Visual Health
We will perform a comprehensive eye exam first before writing you a prescription for your new glasses This allows us to measure your vision error, which serves as our guide when suggesting a lens type or material. If you have an astigmatism, for example, we may recommend using toric lenses for your improved visual acuity.
2. Your Facial Structure
Your eyeglass frames should complement the shape of your face. As a general rule, opposites attract when it comes to faces and eyeglass shapes. Square or rectangular frames, for instance, typically add balance to more rounded faces, while people with strong jaws might find that round or oval frames look best.
3. Your Skin, Eye, and Hair Color
The color of your skin, eyes, and hair matters as well when selecting your eyeglasses. If your complexion has cool undertones, you may want to try on jewel-colored frames. Earth and neutral colors, on the other hand, look great on people with a warm complexion. If you want to highlight the natural color of your eyes, pick a frame that’s the same color.
4. Your Lifestyle and Character
Your glasses are a great way to express your personal style and fashion sense. We recommend choosing specs that suit your personality. Flaunt your artistic side by donning frames in bold, vivid colors with fine details and embellishments. Your glasses should also comply with your lifestyle, so if you partake in sports, for example, you should consider our sports eyewear options, which offer superior durability for lasting performance.
In addition to eyeglasses, we also offer high-quality contact lenses as an equally effective vision correction option. For more reliable tips on picking the perfect eyeglasses, call us at (703) 688-7003 or fill out our form.
