Man wearing sunglasses

Optic Topic by Steven A. Queenan at Regional Eye Optical – Week of July 22, 2019

A good place for a man to begin his search for eyeglass frames is consideration of his facial shape. To make a round face look thinner, it is best to steer clear of round lenses in favor of more rectangular shapes. Men with oval-shaped faces should avoid oversized frames; they can expect to look good in just about any other kind of frame, either round or rectangular.

A heart-shaped face is best served by simple, thin frames that are preferably rectangular; bulky frames are not advised. As far as square faces are concerned, dark-colored full-rim frames are preferable, either round or rectangular.

Men with oval faces are in the best position to experiment with bright and trendy eyeglass-frame colors if it suits their personality.

If your goal is to minimize the effect of your glasses entirely and select the most unobtrusive frames possible, you’re still going to need to think about what kinds of shapes blend in with your face and features and what kinds stand out. REGIONAL EYE OPTICAL keeps its showroom stocked with the latest and greatest trends in eyewear. You’ll find our opticians eager to help you in selecting the frame and lenses that are best suited to your face and your budget.
