Just like every eye, every face has its own unique features. People have diverse tastes and prefer different styles. Do you want spectacles that highlight your own personality or a pair of glasses that changes your look completely? When you choose a pair of glasses, you will have to take these aspects into account. To minimise the confusion, it may be helpful to consider your options before you go to the optometrist. There is one general principle you might want to remember: Create visual contrasts. The shape of your frame should actually be in contrast to the shape of your face to create a balance. This brings the overall appearance into harmony.
It is not always easy to select the optimum spectacle frame to compliment the shape of your own face. People with oval faces are at a huge advantage – they have the ideal face for glasses.
