Falling into a new look routine booking eye exams for the family and finding new frames. There you are in FYidoctors, prescription in-hand, standing in front of a wide selection of frames. Where does anyone in the family begin? The answer is in the mirror: their face shape can narrow down your search! If you’re still unsure, our experienced FYi team members are always there to help you understand your face shape and choose the best eyewear for you.
We assembled a guide to decoding face shapes and frames (diamond face shapes, heart shape face, oval square shape etc). It is crucial to remember that this is a starting point for your selection, and should not overrule style, personality or comfort. A crucial thing is to wear your eyewear as much as possible so you can benefit from clear vision – and this is one way (not the only way!) to encourage wear. Here’s how to choose the right glasses frame according to your face shape.
