Choosing Your Frames
At The Optical Center, our skilled staff is always here to help you find the right glasses or other eye wear so that you make the impression you want. Whether you’re choosing your first pair of glasses, or you’re cultivating a new aesthetic, your optometrist is ready, willing, and able to help you find your next, flattering pair of glasses, from basic frame options to lens design options.
A qualified professional in our optical center can help you determine the best design for your face. Ideally, glasses should highlight a positive physical attribute, such as the color of your eyes. Frame size should be in scale with the size of your face, and the shape of the lenses should contrast your facial shape. Your natural coloring — including hair, eye, and skin tone — can also have an impact on the best style for your face. For example, those with cool undertones often look great with black, brown, gray, magenta, or blue frames, while those with warm undertones might prefer gold, copper, orange, coral, red, or off-white eyeglasses.
With over 3,000 frames on display, we’re certain we can help you find the right pair.
Caring for Your Eyeglasses
To keep your new eyeglasses scratch- and smudge-free, clean them with plain water, and then dry them with a soft cloth. Never use anything scratchy such as a paper towel or a napkin. Air-drying is the best option, if time allows.
Handling and storage are other important aspects of care. To avoid bending the arms, always grasp the frame at the bridge. Always place specs in a case when you aren’t wearing them.
