last twenty years have witnessed significant advances in eyewear technology,
elevating what used to be a mark of social awkwardness into a must-have
accessory. You can buy prescription lenses or, if you have 20/20 vision but
want to inject a little pizzazz into your life, simply start sporting a
stylish frame. Whatever your particular situation, make sure you keep in mind
a few key guidelines when purchasing eyewear.
Above all other considerations, make sure your eyewear frames are comfortable.
Even if you are wearing them for short jaunts, if the frames are too tight or
the nose fittings inflexible or badly adjusted, you will find yourself quite

nose fittings, so that the frames feel as if they are alighting gently on the
nose and not pressing down upon it, badly aligned fittings will leave
tell-tale red marks and depressions in your skin. If the frames feel as if
they are pressing on your head, you will eventually develop a quite crushing
headache. On the flip side, oversize frames will make your ears ache from the
slippage and unequal weight distribution.

style of frame, try to pick one that accentuates the positive aspects of your
face. Round faces will benefit from slightly rounded glasses; extremely
angular faces will do well to have a sleek frame.
Many prescription lenses now come with a “photo-gray” option, which
essentially means that the lens is sensitive to sunlight. When exposed to
sunlight, the lens will darken, enabling you to save on having to buy separate
sunglasses and while still protecting your eyes from ultra-violent rays.
Also, because you will most likely be wearing your frames on a daily basis,
don’t be afraid to shop around. In any given city, there are dozens of
excellent eyewear shops that feature trained, helpful staff who can often as

and styles. Choosing just the right eyewear will keep you in focus and in
