How to Choose Glasses That Suit You Best

A big part of the population has less than perfect vision, and for many of us who wear glasses on a daily basis, they can be one the most important accessories we wear. So it’s important to choose glasses that suit you best, meaning they provide you with clear vision, are very comfortable, and flatter you just the way you’d like!

First, it’s critical that you keep an updated prescription and always wear glasses that provide you with the clearest vision. Make sure you visit your optometrist once per year to ensure your eye health is good and your vision is properly corrected.

It’s then time to take into consideration what look you’d like to achieve with your glasses while also keeping you comfortable. Comfort is vital to choosing a style that suits you best because you need to be able to wear your glasses without getting headaches or feeling like a weight is on your face.

Finally, think about how you’d like to look with your glasses. Hakim Optical is here to help you choose frames that suit you and your style best! Consider the following and know that we have many more styles waiting for you!

For the Creative Lifestyle:choose glasses

Try modern trends, like the newest designs to hit the market, or a mix of materials, like plastic and metal in a single frames. You can also try to experiment with colours and mix retro style with modern materials too, and vice versa.



For the Business Professional:choose glasses

Try to stick to conservative and understated, yet sleek, frame styles. To project your professional appearance, you can try on frames that come in simple colours like black, silver, tortoiseshell and gunmetal.




For Students:choose glasses

Take the opportunity to explore your personal style all the way! Try vintage frames and other classic styles. Or try the newest, futuristic look you can find. You’re discovering yourself and what you’d like from life, so try to discover what you’re looking for in your favourite pair of glasses, too!



You should also take note that the size of the frame should be in scale with the size of your face. You don’t want to be stuck wearing glasses that are too big and overwhelm you!

And finally when you choose glasses, the shape of the frame can compare nicely with the shape of your face, like:

  • Oval Face Shape: bold, thick, structured frames
  • Round Face Shape: balanced square frames
  • Square Face Shape: rounded, softer frames
  • Diamond Face Shape: wider-topped frames with sharper angles
