Swan Family Optometry Discusses Choosing the Right Glasses

Choosing the Right Glasses

Your eyeglasses are a part of your daily life and your “look.” You want eyeglasses that improve your vision, and also to express your personality and style. At Swam Family Optometry in Fair Oaks, CA, we offer a wide variety of frames to suit your personality and style.

Face Shape

If you have a square face, you can soften the edges with a more rounded eyeglass frame. A thin face shape should not be overwhelmed with large frames. A large, rounded face should be balanced with a more angular frame that suits the facial proportions. Don’t be afraid to try a variety of styles, such as aviator, cat eye, oval or square shapes to see what works best.


Skin tone, hair color, and eye color are other considerations that will help you achieve the best appearance with your glasses. If you have golden tones in your skin, a light tortoise, copper or warm blue frame will flatter. If you have pink or blue tones in your skin, stick with black, silver, magenta or darker tortoise frames.


You may want a classic type of frame for a traditional look. However, you can also choose a trendy style that suits a more adventurous mood. A retro “cat eye” frame can show your fun-loving spirit.

Lifestyle Needs

If you are active and engage in vigorous activities for work or play, you may prefer a plastic frame, rather than a metal frame that may become bent during these actions. You may need transitional lenses that darken automatically in bright sunlight. You may prefer polarized lenses to see more clearly outdoors.
