Shopping for glasses is no longer the straightforward matter that it once was. Where once you simply stepped out of the optometrist’s office and selected a pair of frames from the options that your doctor had on hand, now you can choose from a multitude of styles, colors, trends, designers, and merchants. It’s as if we glasses wearers have suddenly discovered the ability to buy in color—or at least in fashion. With all this choice available, you might feel that buying the right pair of glasses is an impossibly large task. Fortunately for you, you’d be wrong. All it takes to find a pair that will make you feel your best whenever they’re worn is a little time and patience.
Your first consideration when shopping for your glasses should always be your vision. Never choose to ignore the care and protection of your eyes in the name of fashion or feeling good because you will ultimately pay for it. Further, there’s really no need. There is absolutely no reason why you can’t find an attractive, high fashion pair of sunglasses in your price range.
Once you’ve nailed down the level of frame durability and uv protection that you need, consider what would look best with your features. If you have deep blue eyes, for example, then you may want to choose a pair of coordinating frames. They’ll make those baby blues even deeper and more arresting. If you’ve always worn the same style, then consider trying something new and wildly different—swapping round frames for cat’s eyes, for example. If you can, take pictures of yourself in the frames you try on. That will allow you to take some time at home and decide not only which pair looks best on you, but which pair you can live with for the next year or so.
