Overall eye and vision health is a concern to the aging population. Over half of the population over age of 80 has cataract formations. More serious diseases like macular degeneration, glaucoma and other eye problems can rob people of their sight as time progresses. Before reaching this stage, it is prudent to take steps to maintain eye health. Exercise, eating right, and sleep are crucial to eye care. Exercise helps with the blood flow to capillaries of the eye and sleep provides the eye’s photoreceptors with needed rest. Eating right will provide the necessary vitamins and nutrients proven to be beneficial for overall eye health.
The majority of us know how important it is to our overall health and well being to have regular eye tests, no matter how old or young we are. What the majority of us don’t know though is how to choose the right eye glasses for our faces.
The secret to choosing eye glasses that suit is all down to defining your face shape and then selecting the glasses for that shape. Here is a guide to help you.
Oblong face shape – this face shape is longer than it is wide with a long straight cheek line and longish nose. If you have this face shape you should opt for aviator framed glasses that will make your face appear shorter and wider.
Diamond face shape – this face is narrow at the eye line and jawline with broad high cheek bones. The best glasses for this shaped face are top heavy frames such as semi-rimless. These draw attention to the eye area creating more width and balance to your face.
Square – this face shape has a broad deep forehead with wide jaw line and square chin. Oval or round frame glasses will suit this shape face best as they soften the jaw line.
Heart – this face shape has a broad forehead with wide cheek bones that narrow to a small chin. Rectangular or oval glasses suit this face shape as they emphasize it.
Triangle – this face shape has a broad forehead and wide cheek bones that narrow to a small chin. Frames that are wider at the bottom and lighter in color will suit this face shape. Try trimless frame styles for example.
Oval – this face shape is well balanced being softly rounded with a forehead that is slightly wider than the jaw line. This face curves softly and cheek bones are high. This lucky face shape should suit any style glasses they care to choose.
Round – this face shape is fairly short with a wide forehead, full cheeks and a rounded chin. A rectangular frame will make this face slimmer and longer.
Now you have all the face shapes and glasses to suit- all you need to do is look in the mirror and decide which face shape you have. Done that? Well get yourself across to Eye Wear Unlimited and choose your perfect pair.
