There are many things to consider when matching you with your next perfect frames or sunglasses.

Don't worry if you need a little help from us! But here's a few things we will consider together to make sure that your new eyewear suits you...

What Glasses Will Suit Me?

Here are some of the most common kinds of face shapes to help you assess the frames that best fit your features:

Oval Faces: These have a slightly wider forehead than jaw, are well balanced and softly rounded.

Try: Just about any frame, but especially angular or rounded aviators and modern small, geometric styles.

Avoid: Large, old-fashioned styles.

Round Faces: Short and fairly wide with full cheeks and a round chin.

Try: Slimming styles. Elongated shapes work well as long as they are not too shallow. Square and up-swept styles can help to highlight the upper face.

Avoid: Small and round or very large shapes which make the face look even rounder.

Heart Shaped Faces with a small, neat chin and mouth, tapering up and out to a broader forehead.

Try: Delicate, rounded or squarish styles.

Avoid: Heart shaped styles.

Square Faces For strong and angular or short and wide faces.

Try: Round or oval styles that soften the jaw line.

Avoid: Shapes that emphasise squareness.

Long Faces with high cheekbones, deep forehead and a strong chiselled jaw line.

Try: Wider frames that counter the faces narrowness. Frames with a strong ‘top line’ or rounded ‘owl’ styles can work well.

Avoid: Small, square styles.

Other things to consider include: eye colour, complexion, hair colour, individual style as well as your prescription and lifestyle. These can all impact which frames will work best for you.
