Other factors for choosing eyeglasses

Besides the shape of your face, other factors are also to be kept in mind while choosing an eyewear for yourself. These include:

  • Your frame should sit well on your nose. Any type of discomfort on your nose will lead to rashes or marks. So make sure the eyewear fits well on the nose bridge.
  • Your eyewear should be of proper size in contrast to your face. The side arms should rest well on your ears. Any eyewear with tight-fitting will discourage you from wearing your eyeglasses for long hours.
  • Your eyeglasses should highlight your facial structure and look good on you.
  • The color of the eyeglass should be according to your persona.
