Do you have trouble choosing the right lenses, eyeglasses and frames to fit your vision needs and lifestyle in a style that complements the shape of your face? Our optometrist helps people just like you get the perfect lenses, frames and glasses in at Visionary Eye Care.

How to Get the Right Lenses

First, schedule a comprehensive eye exam fwith our optometrist. During this examination, your Tampa optometrist will look for eye problems that can affect the health of your eyes and your vision. If your vision needs correction, our optometrist will prescribe lenses for eyeglasses or contact lenses.

How to Choose the Right Eyeglass Frame

It is necessary to determine the shape of your face and choose eyeglasses frames that compliment that shape. Generally, faces are round, square, oval, diamond, or heart-shaped.

Opt for square or rectangular frames if you have a round or oval face, and narrow oval frames if your face is square.

Next, determine your skin tone. Complexions tend to be either ‘cool’ or ‘warm.’ Cool complexions have blue or pink undertones. Warm complexions have a ‘peaches and cream’ or yellow hue.

Also, consider the color of your hair and eyes – they also contain warm and cool tones. Violet blue eyes and very dark brown eyes are cool, for example, while pale blue-grey eyes and light brown eyes are warm. Cool hair colors include platinum, blue-black, white while warm hair colors include golden blond, carrot red and brown-gold.

Finally, choose frames that compliment the warm or cool tones of your skin, hair and eyes. If you have mostly warm colors, go for frames that are camel, gold, copper, off-white, coral, fire engine red, or warm blue in color. If your skin, hair and eyes are mostly cool, choose frames that are black, silver, plum, magenta, jade, or blue.

Lifestyle Considerations When Choosing Eyeglass Frames

It is important to assess your lifestyle; choose glasses that fit your personality. Opt for classic shapes for your frames, such as ovals and rectangles, in traditional colors of black, brown, silver or gray to look more sophisticated. Choose bright colors in geometric designs for a creative look.

Consider a second, or even third, pair of glasses to fit every aspect of your busy lifestyle. Purchase sports eye wear with prescription lenses if you are very active. Also, consider buying a pair of prescription sunglasses so you can see while outside in the sun.
