Getting the right pair of specs is no mean feat, given the plethora of different styles and silhouettes out there. Keeping your peepers supported with top quality lenses that hold the perfect prescription for you is vital for long term, consistent eye care whatever the season, as well as being an accessory for your look, whatever your personal style. First things first though, working out your face shape to determine what frame will work for you is vital when choosing a pair of glasses, so check out our guide on determining your face shapes and picking the perfect pair of glasses, whatever your lifestyle.
The first step is to decide what your face shape is - so is it round, oblong, oval, diamond, triangle, square, or heart-shaped. Take a photo of yourself directly facing the camera and use a piece of tracing paper to outline the edge of your face to work out your face shape. No camera? Then look in the mirror and with an erasable pen (or even some lipstick), trace the outline of your face on the mirror - whatever you do, just make sure you can wipe it off afterwards!
And yes, we know that this sounds a bit odd but it works! We promise!
Now you have your face shape sorted, check out our definitive guide for each face shape (click the links above) to see what will work best for you.
