Frame Selection & Assistance

At some point, you will need to decide on a frame for your eyeglasses. This can be a stressful task because so many options are available on the market. To help make your decision easier, our friendly staff offers personalised assistance with frame selection.

The importance of style and function for frames.

There are many factors to consider when choosing the right spectacle frames. The most important factors are style and function.

Spectacle frames should compliment your facial features and personal style. The wrong spectacle frames can result in an unattractive, awkward look. But the right spectacle frames can enhance your appearance and make you look more stylish and confident.

The function is also an essential factor to consider when choosing spectacle frames. The wrong spectacle frames can cause eye strain, headaches, and neck pain. So it's important to choose frames that are the right size and shape for your face and that have the correct lens prescription for your eyesight.

If you need help choosing the right spectacle frames, our experienced opticians at Wayne Smith Optometrists can assist you. We have a wide selection of fashionable frame styles to choose from, and we'll help you find the perfect pair of frames that look great on you and provide the vision correction you need.

How do we help you choose the right spectacle frames?

Our role is to help guide you through choosing the right spectacle frames. We will consider your lifestyle, prescription, face shape, and personal preferences to find the best possible option for you.

There are a few key things that we look at when helping you choose glasses frames. Of course, your prescription is one of the most important factors, as it will determine what type of lens you need. Face shape is also essential, as specific frame shapes can complement or accentuate certain features. And finally, your style preferences come into play – we will work with you to find frames that match your taste and personality.

What are the basic guidelines for choosing the perfect frame?

There are a few key things to remember when choosing a frame shape. First, think about the overall proportions of your face. If you have a round face, choose more angular frames to help balance out your features. Conversely, if you have a narrow or long face, opt for rounder frames to add some width.

Another important consideration is the size of the frames in relation to your face. You don't want them to be too small or too large - just right! Once again, this is something that ties back into proportion. If your face is on the smaller side, look for frames that aren't too wide or oversized. However, if you have a larger face, you can go for bolder and bigger frames without fear of them looking out of proportion.

Finally, take into account your personal style when choosing frames. Do you prefer a more classic look? Then stick with tried-and-true shapes like rectangular or oval frames. Feeling more experimental? Then go ahead and try out some trendier styles like cat-eye or geometric frames.

No matter your preference, there's sure to be a frame shape perfect for you.

How to choose a glasses frame that complements your skin tone?

When choosing a glasses frame, you should consider what will complement your skin tone. There are a few things to keep in mind when making this selection.

If you have a cool undertone, look for frames made of metal or plastic in colours like silver, black, and grey. Opt for metal frames in gold or tortoiseshell for those with a warm undertone, or go with rich wood tones. And if you have a neutral undertone, any colour goes!

When trying on glasses frames, hold them up to your face and take a look in the mirror. Pay attention to whether the frames make your face look washed out or complement your features. Also, think about whether the frame style is something you could see yourself wearing day in and day out. After all, you want to be comfortable in your glasses and stylish!
