What do I need to consider when choosing eyeglasses?

You need to think about your facial shape, coloring, personal style, eyeglasses prescription when you choose your lenses. The team of opticians uses their years of expertise to help you make the best selection from a wide range of frames and lenses to suit every style and budget. 

The stronger your eyeglasses lens prescription, the thicker and heavier your lenses will be. Hi-index lenses, which are thinner and lighter can be helpful for parients with higher prescriptions. 

The opticians provide customized advice, but you should consider smaller, rounder frames to reduce and hide the thickness of your lenses. 

Also, if you need bifocal or progressive lenses, you will need a frame that’s tall enough to accommodate the different prescriptions and focal points. 

Additionally, some eyeglasses frame shapes suit certain face shapes better. If you have round features, you might prefer the look of rectangular or square frames. Alternatively, if you have a more angular or square facial shape, rounded lenses may be more flattering.
