- Frame shape
The eyeglasses of your choice should complement your face and highlight your favorite facial attributes. Before you buy eyeglasses online, you should first be aware of your face shape. You can know if your face is oval, round, square, diamond, or heart shape by simply looking in the mirror.
- Frame size
While you consider eyeglasses frame sizes for fashion, it’s best to determine the correct measurements for your face. Big frames can make your face smaller while small frames can make your face bigger. Too loose, your eyeglasses might slip off, while too narrow might cause improper blood flow.
If you have an old pair of eyeglasses that suit you well, you can check the measurements engraved at the temples.
- Frame materials
Eyeglasses frames are made of plastic, acetate, metal, and titanium. Well-known brands such as Persol and Tom Ford will provide you with premium materials, which will result in a long-lasting pair of eyeglasses.
- Frame colors
Once you’ve decided on the frame’s shape, size, and materials, you can proceed to choose the best color for you. Most of the time, the design that you love is available in a wide range of colors.
- Enter Your Prescription and Choose Lenses, and Coatings
Now that you have decided on the frames, you can submit your optical prescription.
Your optometrists may require you to have single-vision or multi-vision lenses. However, you can still decide the lens materials and how thick or thin your lenses should be. Check our lens index chart to find out which one is most suitable for your vision correction needs.
The coatings are based on your lifestyle: If you know you live an active lifestyle that could cause a higher risk of lens damage, you can have the anti-scratch coating for added strength. If you own a car and you use it every day, an anti-reflective coating will surely help. UV protection coating is also essential.
