Have you recently visited the eye doctor only to find out that you need prescription glasses for the first time in your life? Whether it came as a surprise or not, the next step is of course to get yourself a pair of glasses as soon as possible. As a first-time shopper, you may find it a bit overwhelming as you start the shopping experience looking at the many options, styles, colours, and price points that exist. How do you narrow it down to just one pair?

Weíve gone ahead and put together this handy guide that you can refer to that will help first-time glasses wearers find the best frames for their personal style, face shape, and even skin tone. So, letís jump right in.

What is Your Face Shape

The first question youíre going to want to ask yourself is what your face shape is. This simple answer will be a major deciding factor when it comes to the frames. Frames that look good on a round face shape wonít be ideal for those with more of a square shaped face, and so forth. If youíre having trouble figuring out what your face shape is, there are plenty of handy guides online that you can use to determine the results. Common face shape categories include square, round, heart shaped, or oval. Once you figure out your face shape, check out this blog on https://www.nib.com.au/the-checkup/healthy-living/how-to-choose-glasses-for-your-face-shape" rel="nofollow - Choosing glasses for your face shape .

What is Your Skin Tone?

Next, youíll want to figure out your skin tone, also referred to as your undertone. You will either be warm, cool, or neutral. The reason this is important is that it will help you find the best colour of frames that will flatter your skin tone. By choosing a colour that works with your skin tone, youíll be creating that natural flow and the glasses wonít look out of place against your skin.

Determining your skin tone can also help you to figure out what colours flatter you best when it comes to clothing, accessories, and makeup. Again, you can refer to guides online to help you figure out what tone best represents you.

Give Thought to Your Personal Style

Now that youíve narrowed down what your face shape is, and your skin tone, itís time to think about what your personal style is. Do you tend to dress in a rather casual manner, are you a bit on the creative/artsy side of things? Maybe you are very prim, proper and professional? The answer, again, will help direct you when it comes to your options.

Glasses that Suit You and Complement You

By following these simple tips, youíll be able to find the perfect pair of glasses that not only suits your face shape and skin tone, but also matches up with your unique style and personality. This will make you all the more comfortable as you get used to wearing glasses.
