Find Your Frame
According to the Vision Council of America (VCA) Envision Yourself program, there are 3 aspects to consider when choosing frames:
The shape of the frame should contrast the shape of your face
The size of the frame should be in scale with the size of your face
The eyewear should repeat your personal best feature, for example, a blue frame to bring out the colour of a blue-eyed individual
Inverted Triangle (Base Up Triangle) – minimize the upper portion of your face by selecting frames no wider than your forehead and angling outward at the bottom corners. Rimless styles will also work well
Square – try narrow (no wider than the widest part of your face) frames with softly curved styles (for example ovals) to soften the strong jaw-line and forehead. Frames should be wider than they are deep though
Oblong – this face shape is long and thin. Try frames with decorative feature to add more width. Shorten the face by choosing styles that extend beyond the widest part of the face and frames with more depth. Round, square or low-triangular shapes work well
If youʼre unsure which frame suites your face shape, come in to Dr. Mei-Ling Chanʼs optometric office in Barrie and we will be glad to help you!
