What types of eyeglass frames are right for my face shape?

The optical team can help you choose frames that look best on your face shape. When selecting your new frames, consider your skin tone, eye color, and other prominent facial features. Ultimately, your choice for new frames should be comfortable to wear and reflect your personality. 

It’s best to come in and try on different frames to get an idea of the ones you like. Here are a few general guidelines to keep in mind when you do:

If you have a round face, choose frames that are more angular and narrow to help lengthen your face and make it appear thinner. Conversely, if you have a narrow, oblong face, it helps to choose frames that have more depth than width to create an overall balance.
