Special Purpose Glasses
Whether you want optimum vision and comfort for computer use, work, hobbies, sports, yardwork, or driving, special purpose glasses will usually meet your needs more so than your everyday glasses.
Choosing Your Lenses & Frames
Here are some helpful tips to consider when choosing the best lenses and frames for you:
Is your face round, oval, square, diamond or heart-shaped?
The shape of your face will help you determine which frames enhance your look.
The key to finding the right frames is to remember that opposites attract. Select eyeglasses that contrast from your facial contours and bring symmetry and balance to your prominent features.
Look for a strong bridge. The frames should be wider than the broadest part of the face and geometric in shape. Avoid eyeglasses that are overly large and cover up more than half of your face. It will throw off the natural balance and symmetry of the oval face.
Look for frames that are square or rectangular, and wider than your face. This will make your face appear slimmer and longer, adding balance to your round features. Avoid rimless frames, round frames and small frames. They will accentuate the roundness, making your round face look even rounder.
Our Lens & Frame Brands
In addition to numerous budget options, Mainely Eyes carries high quality eyeglass lenses from Varilux, Transitions, and Crizal. We also stock the latest eyeglass frames from the most popular brands, including:
Costa Del Mar
Hart Schaffner Marx
Look for eyeglasses that soften the angularity and sit high on the bridge of the nose. Oval or round eyeglasses will balance and add a thinner appearance to the angles of a square face. Avoid angular and boxy eyeglass frames. They will sharpen and draw attention to your angular features, making a square face appear bulky.
Look for eyeglasses with low-set temples and bottom heavy frame lines will add width to the narrower part of your face. Round or square eyeglasses with curved edges will help draw attention away from a broad, high forehead. Avoid any style or color of frames that draws attention to the forehead, including frames with decorative temples or embellished tops.
Play up a narrow forehead and chin with eyeglass frames that sweep up or are wider than the cheekbones, such as cat eye glasses and oval frames. These frames will accentuate your cheekbones and delicate features. Avoid boxy and narrow frames. They will accentuate the width of your cheeks, drawing attention to your narrow features rather than enhancing them.
Consider Colors That Match Your Skin Tone
Just as the shape of your face helps determine which frames look best, so does your skin tone. More important than hair color and more decisive than eye color, skin tone sets the tone for high fashion frames. Select a shade closest to your skin tone:
- Warm Skin Tone
If you have a yellow, bronze or golden cast to your skin, you have a warm complexion. Stay away from contrasting colors such as pastels. White and black frames are not flattering either. Instead, the best frame colors for you are light tortoise, browns shades, gold or honey, beige, and olive green.
- Cool Skin Tone
If your skin has pink or blue undertones, you have a cool complexion. Avoid colors that wash you out and instead reach for frames that are silver, black, dark tortoise, pink, purple, blue, mauve and gray.
What’s Your Lifestyle?
There are eyeglass frames for every way of life! Think about the activities you will do while wearing your eyeglasses. If you’re active, Eyeconic offers Flexon frames which can twist and bend without breaking. Need gaming glasses? Gamers can choose from a wide selection of stylish frames that enhance the gaming experience. When impressing the big wigs at the office, you can accessorize your business savvy with sensible style. At Mainely Eyes you’ll find frames with a functionality that matches your lifestyle.
Fit Frames to Your Personality?
The frames you wear can say a lot about your personality. You can have a pair of glasses that showcase your fun loving side on the weekends and a pair that emphasizes your get down to business tone during the week. Adorn your face with your favorite color (as long as it doesn’t clash with your skin tone) or detailed embellishments and flare. Choose either one style of frames to express your personality or have a small collection of frames on hand to easily alter your appearance to suit your mood.
