When you have decided what type of frame you want for your prescription glasses, you can choose the shape of the frame. There are many frame shapes available in the market. Let’s have a close look at some of the frame shapes.
Rectangular glasses have rectangular frames and lenses. The rectangular shape of the frames gives a slender and angular look. These are a better choice if you have an oval, round or heart face shape.
Oval frames are a little round and give a modest look to your face. They are timeless pieces to create a slender and fashionable look. If you have an angular face shape like a square or heart-shaped, oval frames will be a good option for you to choose. However, if you have a round or pear-shaped face, avoid wearing oval-framed glasses.
Round frames are used in round glasses with circular lenses. These frames are mostly used in glasses when you want to get a classic and retro look. Round frames better suit wire-frames or full-rimmed frames.
If you want to incorporate round frames into your prescribed glasses, get oversized frames and lenses to get a vigilant look. People with square, diamond, and heart face shapes choose these round frames for their eyeglasses so that their angular structures get less highlight.
So, these are some of the types of frames that you can choose for your sunglasses. These different rim types suit different occasions and individuals’ sense of styling. Whether you have single-vision, bifocal or progressive lenses in your prescription glasses, you can choose any of the frames as per your preference and style.
