Choosing the Right Frames for Your Lifestyle

When shopping for new glasses, we always recommend choosing frames that will suit your unique lifestyle. After all, there are a variety of materials to choose from when it comes to your eyeglass frames. From durable yet lightweight titanium to practical plastic, you'll want to think about the material type that's best for your needs. For example, if you work in a rugged environment or lead a very active lifestyle, then a more durable frame material may be your best bet. For occasional wear, plastic frames or a similar material may suit you just fine.

One of our experienced and friendly opticians would be happy to assist you in reviewing your frame options, discussing the benefits and potential drawbacks of each, and answering any questions you may have to help you make an informed decision.

Choosing Frames to Flatter Your Face Shape

Another important consideration to keep in mind when shopping for eyeglass frames with our optometrist in Boston is your face shape. Each person's face shape is unique, but most people's face shape will fall into one of a few categories:

  • Round/oval
  • Square/diamond
  • Heart-shaped

Generally, it is recommended that you select a frame style that complements your face shape. For example, if you have a round face, then choosing frames with sharper angles will be your best bet. On the other hand, those with angled square or diamond-shaped faces will be better suited in a pair of rounded or oval frames to help soften out those features.

If you have a heart-shaped face, you're in luck! You'll look great in most frame styles, so long as the size is proportionate to your face.

If you're not sure what face shape you have or where to start when it comes to selecting frames that will complement your face shape, don't worry. That's exactly what our optical team is here for! We'd be happy to make some recommendations and help answer any questions that will help you make a better decision regarding your next frame style.
