Designer Frames To Fit Your Lifestyle

Last month we talked about facial features when it comes to eyewear frame selection, but other factors play a role in selecting the best fit. Frame shape and size may also be dictated by bi-focal or trifocal lines that could be needed. Although they may be a top choice, those little rectangle frames may not be an option for patients who need trifocal lenses. Our optical specialists will be able to guide you as to the best style and shape not only for your facial shape, skin tone, and lifestyle; but they keep in mind the type of eye correction that is needed.

Skin Tone and Eye Frame Colors

Just as the shape of your face helps determine which frames look best, so does your skin tone. More important than hair color and more decisive than eye color, skin tone sets the tone for high fashion frames.

Warm Skin Tone – If you have a yellow, bronze, or golden cast to your skin, you have a warm complexion. You might want to stay away from contrasting colors such as pastels. White and black frames are not flattering either. Instead, the best frame colors for you are a light tortoise, browns shades, gold or honey, beige, and olive green.

Cool Skin Tone – If your skin has pink or blue undertones, you have a cool complexion. Avoid colors that wash you out and instead reach for frames that are silver, black, dark tortoise, pink, purple, blue, mauve, and gray.


There are eyeglass frames for every way of life! Think about the activities you will do while wearing your eyeglasses. If you’re active, perhaps you want to choose frames that can twist and bend without breaking. Need computer or gaming glasses? Gamers can choose from a wide selection of stylish frames that enhance the gaming experience.

The frames you wear can say a lot about your personality. You can have a pair of glasses that showcase your fun-loving side on the weekends and a pair that emphasizes your get down to business tone during the week.
