Though contacts are more popular than glasses these days, most people have a back up set of glasses for days when they don’t want to put contacts in, or when they think they need a break. Some with allergies have problems wearing contacts all of the time, and some medications can mess with how the eyes focus and can make wearing corrective contact lenses hard to do. Many that wear contacts also like to have a set of glasses frames that they can put on later in the day when their eyes dry out and they need to take the lenses out.
No matter why you may want to have glasses, it is a good idea to be sure they fit well. That is something you will worry about after you have picked out your glasses frames. Most types can be changed to fit, so don’t worry about that right away. Instead, you should think about how each of the glasses frames you see would look on your face. You may see a pair that you think would be very cool, but they may not look very good on your face. If that happens, you are never going to want to wear them.
You may even find out that some of the glasses frames that you want to pass up are actually the ones that are going to look the best on your face. Once you see how good they look, they are going to become your favorites. You should try on the glasses frames that you like the most first, of course, but really look at how they shape your appearance. You may really like them, but you need to love how they look on your face.
Try each of the types that you see when searching through your choices. Never get any glasses frames without trying them on and really studying how you look. You may get lucky, but in most cases, you will end up taking them back for a different set of frames. The problem is that everyone has a different shape of face, and eyes are all different as well. Some frames compliment round faces, but make someone with a longer face look funny. Study the look of your glasses frames from all angles and try them on twice or three times if you need to. That will help insure you have chosen the best glasses for your face.
