Tips If You Wear Spectacles

Your eyes are a very important part of your first impression. The style of your specs speaks volumes about you. Spectacles are generally not inexpensive so here are a few tips to help get the purchase right.

  • If you have not changed your specs in the last four or five years you must. Fashion in eyewear changes and you need to evolve with it.
  • Always opt for non-reflective glass. It will ensure that others can make eye contact with you and not just be looking at reflections. The non-reflective coating cannot be added at a later point – it must be done when buying.
  • The colour of the frame should complement your natural colouring. If cooler opt for more silver, grey frames. If warmer the gold and browns will work well.
  • Frame shape should complement face shape.
  • You should aim for your eye to be in the middle of spectacle both vertically and horizontally.
  • Your specs should be in scale with you. If you are larger a small spectacle with look a lost on you and vice versa.
  • Frames should never touch the cheeks.
  • Try and avoid looking surprised with double eye brows. Follow your natural brow line as much as possible. A maximum of 1 cm below brow line can work if eye area is large enough.
  • Eye brows should never be visible through the lenses.
  • Specs should be the right width for your face. The sides should not be visible from the front.
  • Very widely separated eyes (more than one eye width between eyes) should have specs with a lower darker bridge. If close set eyes (less than one eye width between eyes), wear a clear bridge.

A short nose should have a higher bridge that is clear. If the nose is long, wear a lower, darker bridge to shorten the nose.
