If you’re looking for prescription sunglasses to protect your vision, these are a few tips that can help.

Choosing the Right Sunglasses: Face Shape

Choosing the right pair of glasses or sunglasses starts by knowing your face shape. There are six main face shapes include:

  • Oblong: Oblong faces should choose deep, wide frames. Choosing proportionate frames with width adds the illusion of width to the face as well.
  • Oval: Any sunglasses work. Known as the ideal face shape, those with oval faces are the most proportionally balanced and can wear more shapes successfully.
  • Heart: Create balance by adding bulk at the bottom of a pair of sunglasses. Rectangular and square frames are great because they maintain the current width of the forehead. Similarly to oval face shapes, hearts can usually wear anything, but a balanced frame is best.
  • Square: For a square face, the goal is to soften the features. Choose round or oval frames to draw attention away from the jawline.
  • Diamond: Go top-heavy on a diamond face by choosing sunglasses with thicker frames on top and thin frames on the bottom. Semi-rimless frames are ideal for this face shape.
  • Round: For round faces, opt for square or boxy sunglasses. This adds structure to a face with few or no strong angles.

Getting the Right Prescription Frames

After an eye exam by our optometrist, she will encourage you to look at a variety of sunglasses with the option of obtaining prescription lenses. Choose from collections by Caroline Abram,  Dolce & Gabbana and other popular brands.
