If you have been struggling to see, you have likely thought about making an appointment with an optometrist to have your vision checked. At the first signs of vision difficulty, contact Clinton Eye Associates to meet with our practitioner. If eyeglasses are recommended, selecting the perfect pair is necessary to achieve the perfect presentation to others. Here are some tips to help you pick out the perfect set of eyeglasses.

Our Inventory 

Our facility is stocked with several brands, colors, and styles of eyeglass frames to select from. After your eye exam is conducted, take the time to browse the selection available. We have mirrors provided so you can try on each frame and see what it looks like before you make a choice. If you are looking for a particular type of eyeglasses frame, alert our staff, and we will do our best to help you locate it.

Bring Along Someone To Help

It is a good idea to have a friend or family member available to help you with the selection of eyeglasses frames. They can let you know which frames suit your features positively. If you are unable to decide between more than one frame style, consider purchasing additional frames so you can change your appearance depending on your mood at any given time. If you do not have someone to take to your appointment, our staff will be on hand to provide you with feedback about different frames and their appearance.

Know The Shape Of Your Face For The Best Look

The shape of your face helps to determine which frames will look best. If your face is round, an angular or squared set of frames will look best. Alternately, if your face is oval or rectangular, round frames will look pleasing. Frames with a cat-eye style are attractive to those with heart-shaped faces. If you are unsure about your face shape, trace your face in a photograph onto a piece of paper for a better idea.

Be Aware Of Your Daily Activities

The activities you engage in regularly make a difference in the type of eyeglasses you should select. For example, if you are involved in sporting activities, you may want to opt for a set of sports glasses for gameplay. We have glasses available to protect your eyes on the job as well. You can also opt for eyeglasses with transitional lenses if you wish to protect your eyes from ultraviolet light.
