Eye Glasses Q & A

What happens during an eyeglass exam?

An eyeglass exam is part of a comprehensive eye exam, during which Dr. Patel checks your visual acuity and eyes’ health. He’ll look into your eyes, searching for signs of glaucoma and diabetes, as well as run specific tests that measure the sharpness of your vision, determine your prescription strength, and examine how your eyes work in conjunction with one another.

All of this information helps him develop just the right prescription for lenses, which are then made in a laboratory and set into the frames you choose.

Why is it important to choose the right frames?

Glasses say a lot about your style. They’re one of the first things people notice about you. At Eye Care Solutions, the staff works with you in finding the right frames that match your taste and complement your face. Other considerations when choosing frames include:

  • Your budget
  • Lifestyle
  • Vision needs

What type of glasses work best for my face shape?

Your face is either round, square, diamond, oval, or heart-shaped. A different kind of frame looks best on each of these. For example, square or rectangular frames can make a round face appear slimmer and more extended. Geometric, wide frames compliment an oval face. Oval and round frames help reduce the angular look of a square face. Cat-eye shaped frames or oval frames help balance out a diamond face. If you have a heart-shaped face, go for round or square eyeglasses with curved edges to bring attention away from your forehead.

What color eyeglass frame should I choose?

The best color glasses complement your skin tone. If you have a warm complexion, avoid pastels and go for tortoise, browns, honey-colored, or olive frames. Those with a cool skin tone with pink or blue undertones do best with silver, black, purple, gray, and even pink frames.

How does my lifestyle affect my eyeglass frame selection?

Active people may select frames that are flexible and bend with your movement. Also, think about the image you want to present – is it artistic, professional, or nerdy? Frames can say a lot about who you are and how you spend your time. And, you don’t have to choose just one pair. You can have a set of frames that you wear to the office and one that highlights a more fun-loving side that you have on the weekends.
