Find a Comfortable Fit
Women tend to be more interested in the way their eyeglasses look, while men seem to be more concerned about comfort and fit. But uncomfortable frames are no fun for anyone. Here are some ways to get the best fit:
- Frames should be wide enough for your face so that the sides aren’t pressing against your temples. The outer edge of the frame should line up with your cheek bones or the widest part of your face. The curve at the end of the earpieces should rest comfortably behind your ears.
- The nose bridge is very important and should perfectly fit your nose. If it sits on the top of your nose and flares out at the sides, the weight of the glasses will make them very uncomfortable. The nose pads also need to fit solidly or the glasses can quickly lose their grip.
- When you first get your new eyeglasses, move your head up and down and bend forward to be sure they will stay where they belong. With properly adjusted nose pads and temples, your glasses should stay comfortably in place.
Elmquist Eye Group carries the current styles to fit your fashion and lifestyle needs, including eyewear from Dolce & Gabbana, Coach, Ray Ban, Oakley, Marc Jacobs, Liz Claiborne, Nautica, Silhouette, Charmant, Saks Fifth Avenue, and more.
Try Before You Buy
When your eye exam reveals that you need prescription lenses, the choices are endless. Once you’ve made a selection, the state-of-the-art Visioffice® measuring system will allow you to see yourself in the new glasses before you buy.
It allows your optician to take a single measurement to record your eye rotation center for each eye, as well as your natural head posture, eye position, visual behavior and frame measurements – all factors that are unique to each patient and can impact lens performance.
The information is then used to create individualized lenses just for you. Try on different frames and take photos at different angles to see how you look. You’ll also be able to select different lens materials and desired add-ons, such as anti-reflective coating to help eliminate glare.
