Choosing the Right Eye Wear

Glasses say so much about your personality and personal style. At Omni Eye Care Center, we are happy to work with you in selecting frames that complement your features. Our trained eye wear specialists work closely with you to select the best eye wear to fit your budget as well as your cosmetic, lifestyle, and vision needs. While working with our experienced staff enables you to select the appropriate frames, we invite you to learn more about which eye wear styles complement various face shape.

Select Your Frames

Square Face

A square face is often characterized by a strong jaw line, a broad forehead, and a wide chin and cheekbones. The width and length of the face are close to being equal. Eye wear should be selected to make the face look longer and to soften the square angles of the face. Choose eye wear that is slightly curved (like an oval shape) and that has more horizontal than vertical real estate.

Oval Face

The oval face is identifiable by its balanced proportions. The forehead is slightly wider than the chin and cheekbones are high. Eye wear should complement the natural proportions of the oval. Choose eye wear that is wide or wider than the broadest part of the face and that follow your brow line. Often, diamond or rectangular shapes work best for oval shapes.

Oblong Face

Although fairly similar to an oval shape, an oblong face is longer than it is wide. The ideal eye wear will shorten the face by creating a break in the length of the face. Choose eye wear that has depth and a low bridge to shorten the nose. Try eye wear that is round, deep, have low-triangle shapes, or that has strong vertical lines.

Round Face

A round or full face is characterized by having the same width and length. For round faces, eye wear that adds length to the face often work best. Eye wear that lengthens the face is typically angular, narrow and wider than it is deep. It is best to avoid round style eye wear as it will exaggerate the roundness and curves of the face.

Heart Shaped Face (or Base-up Triangle)

A heart shaped face looks like a heart or a triangle with the point facing down. The forehead is very wide and cheekbones are high while the face narrows towards the chin. Counterbalance the narrow chin by choosing eye wear that is wider at the bottom. Generally, light colored and rimless eye wear works best, although aviator, butterfly and low-triangle styles also work well.

Base-down Triangle Face

A base-down triangle face has a narrower forehead with full cheeks and a broad chin. To offset a broad chin, select frames that widen at the top. Great selections include eye wear that has heavy color accents and detail on the top. Cat-eye shapes also work well to add width and emphasize the narrow upper part of the face.

Diamond Face

A diamond shaped face is often characterized by high, dramatic cheekbones with a narrow eye line and jaw line. This shape is the rarest of all the shapes. Oval eye wear that is soft in style typically work best to highlight the eyes and cheekbones. Select eye wear that has detailing, distinctive brow lines, is rimless or a cat-eye shape for best results.

This is a general guide and is only intended for reference. Our experienced and trained staff will assist you in selecting eye wear that works best for your lifestyle.

Testimonial

Love Dr. Taroyan he's been my ophthalmologist for several years and has taken great care of my eyes. He even suggested a surgery for my eyes that changed my life. It was a surgery that usually people much older than me get, but due the level of my poor vision he identified me as an eligible candidate and I am beyond words happy with the results. I trust him and his staff implicitly.
