Face Shape Guide for Glasses


When it comes to finding the perfect fitting glasses, a lot depends on your individual face shape. Different frame styles can either play up or play down your unique facial contours, so learning what works best for you is key. Whether your face is round, square, heart, oval or triangle, this face shape guide for glasses highlights what you should and shouldn’t focus on when it comes to shopping for the perfect glasses. If you’re unsure of your actual face shape, this guide also illustrates the main differences between the more common shapes.

    It’s somewhat subjective as to what are the “perfect” glasses for each face.

    None of this explains why, several years ago, everyone, male and female, was wearing those scrunched up “Tina Fey” glasses, which looked good on no one, including Tina Fey. In fact, they were the only choice available at many stores. I thought that was the worst fashion fad since enormous shoulder pads on women. I couldn’t wait for it to pass.

      Hi TheFred,

      Fashions definitely come and go with time. Only a decade ago, big chunky plastic frames seemed unusual and now they’re the norm — and they’ll surely be seen as outdated and unusual soon enough again.

      Shapes are always a good guideline, but style, fashion, and taste always have a role to play as well.

      Thank you for sharing your comment!

    Congrats! If there were 100 eyewear companies lined up to choose from, I would do without glasses rather than choose you because of the rude, obtrusive way your ad keeps poppping up on my FB page. I don’t even wear eyeglasses and your ad continually, bombards me over and over daily. I would advise friends against dealing with you for the same reasons but probably don’t haveto as they get hit with the same pop=up. I type this to you as I cannot find a way to “unsubscribe” from your garbage

      Hi Larry,

      Thank you for sharing your concerns. We understand and respect the frustration regarding the cookie-based ads that follow customers from site to site.
