Glasses, more than ever, say a lot about your personality, style, and fashion. Selecting the right frames can be confusing and daunting, especially for first time patients. Our staff has a great deal of experience helping patients find the best frames for them – taking into account budget, medical needs, lifestyle, and appearance. At Legacy Vision, we are here to help you find the perfect look, while also correcting your vision.
There is no replacement for professional help finding the right frames for your face, but the guide below can give you an idea of what to look for.
Square Face: A square face features a prominent jaw line, wide forehead, and angular features like the chin and cheekbones. The length and width of a square face are roughly the same.
Frames: Look for frames that make the face appear longer. Minimal or thinner frames with soft, round lines will look best. Oval and circular frames work well, as do neutral colors.
Round Face: A round face has similar width and length, like a square face, but has much softer angles in the cheeks and chin. Cheeks are typically full and the chin is rounded.
Frames: Select frames that elongate the face. Typically, this means rectangular frames. Frames with nosepads will help raise the glasses above the cheeks, and high temples may help slim the face as well. Round frames should generally be avoided.
Oval Face: The oval face is the most common, characterized by overall balance. The chin is slightly narrower then the forehead and cheekbones are typically high.
Frames: Most frames work for an oval face, so that provides the freedom to find a style you enjoy. Bold shapes and colors can add personal style to your frames. The goal is to maintain the natural balance of the face. Frames should be broader than the widest part of the face. The eyes should not be too close to the top or bottom of the glasses.
Heart Shaped Face: A heart face has a wide forehead, narrow chin, and high cheekbones. The jaw line may be narrow as well.
Frames: A difficult face to frame, look for frames that are wider than the forehead. Frames that are wider on the bottom, and have details on the lower half, often work well. Light colors can look best and be sure to consider rimless frames as well. Some people prefer rounder frames, so be sure to consider all of your options.
Many people prefer to wear contacts instead of eyeglasses. Luckily, as advances are made in the optometry field, more and more people can wear contacts to improve their vision.
EYE & VISION EXAM
Routine eye examinations are important for several reasons. First, we want to do a thorough examination to ensure your eyes are healthy. We also want to look for any problems to catch them before you even have any symptoms.
LASIK EYE SURGERY
LASIK stands for laser in-situ keratomileusis and is a popular surgery to correct vision problems. LASIK can help people who are nearsighted or farsighted as well those who have astigmatism.
SPORTS & SAFETY
Athletes need good vision to be able to succeed in their sport. They also need to have healthy eyes to ensure victory. There are times when an athlete’s vision can be improved without wearing glasses. We use therapy to strengthen areas your eyes that may have become weakened. We also use therapy to improve your reaction and timing so that your eyes will be stronger than most people’s.
Sports vision training involves high-level eye tracking, depth perception, and hand-eye coordination. Many athletes practice these exercises to keep their eyes in peak condition.
Since there are many different exercises and everyone has different needs, we have to perform some testing first. We need to determine how your eyes will function beyond the realm of normal activity before we customize a program to strengthen your vision based on your level of activity.
We all know how important our eyes are. Everyone deserves to see clearly, no matter what he or she is doing. Protecting your eyes is a priority! For this reason, we are proud to offer sports eyewear. They are available for patients who are highly athletic. These frames give patients extra eye protection whenever they are training or competing.
Prescription safety glasses are also available for patients who need them at work. With prescription safety glasses, you won’t have to put huge safety glasses over your regular glasses. Instead, you will just be able to wear your safety glasses, which will allow you to see clearly.
If you have any questions about our sports and safety eyewear, don’t hesitate to contact us today at 972-208-5757.
