The Perfect Glasses to Suit Your Face

When choosing your new spectacles your facial shape is one of the most important parts about choosing frames that are going to compliment your appearance. If you are not already familiar with the shape of your face we have a guide on our website which will help you determine this in detail. By taking a few moments to discover your true face shape will have you looking optimal in no time.

Spectacles for Oval faces

People with an oval face have a softly rounded forehead and chin, with fairly balanced proportions. Lucky for you, almost all spectacles will suit you, so you are able to be as adventurous as you like. Styles that are a little wider than the widest part of your face often look particularly great on an oval face.

Key facial features:

– Softly rounded
– Evenly proportioned

Spectacles for Round Faces

If you have a round face its best to choose styles that will complement your softer features. You will find that a rounder frame rather than angular frame will be much more flattering.

Key facial features:

– Width & length similarly proportionate
– Fuller cheekbones
– Little to no angles

Spectacles for Square Faces 

If your face width and length are proportionate, and you’ve got a broad forehead and a strong jaw it is highly likely that you have a square face. To create a little more length in the face and to offset your strong facial features, opt for narrower styles frames that are still angular in shape to complement your face.

Key facial features:

– Broad deep forehead
– Square chin
– Wide jaw

Spectacles for Triangle Faces

If you have a triangular face it will be widest at the jaw, narrowing up towards your forehead. To flatter your features it looks great to add a little width to the narrower part of your face, so go for frames with strong brow lines or cat-eye shapes to really emphasise your eyes.

Key Facial Features:

– Narrow at the forehead
– Wider at the cheek and chin area

Spectacles for Heart Shaped Faces

If you have a heart-shaped face you will be widest at the forehead, gently narrowing down towards the chin with soft features.

To offset the natural wideness at the top half of your face, opt for spectacles that are a little wider than your forehead or have an exaggerated brow line like a cat-eye style.

Key facial features:

– Broad forehead
– High and defined cheekbones
– Small chin

Covid -19 FAQ's

Whilst transmission is via viral respiratory particles we know that viral particles can be found in the tears and this can cause viral conjunctivitis. It is probable that the affected individual will experience primary symptoms such as fever and cough.

The latest advice for contact lens wearers is that there is no evidence to date that contact lens wear should be avoided by healthy individuals, or that contact lens wearers are more at risk of contracting coronavirus then those wearing spectacles.
To help maintain healthy contact lens wear, all contact lenses wearers should follow correct lens wear and care instructions, including thoroughly washing and drying your hands before handling, applying and removing your contact lenses. Spectacles should be washed regularly using warm soapy water. In the absence of the diagnosis of COVID-2 and in the absence of symptoms of fever, cough, red eye or discharge and provided that scrupulous hygiene is practised then contact lens wear is permissible. Social distancing ( minimum of 2m) should be exercised. Spectacle wear would be the preferred mode of sight correction or daily wear contact lens wear.
