Choose the Best Eyewear Style for Your Face Shape

Choose the Best Eyewear Style for Your Face ShapeIt’s a great time to be wearing glasses. With frames now available in a creative variety of shapes, colors and materials, shopping for a new pair can make you feel like a kid in an eye candy store.

There are general guidelines that can help you hone in on eye wear shapes that will suit and fit your face well while complementing your image and lifestyle needs. First, determine your face shape by pulling back your hair and using a mirror to match up with one of the shapes in the image.

If you have angular features such as prominent cheekbones and jawline, get curvaceous with rounder frame shapes.

Frame color can really give your eyes a lift.

If you have a higher prescription, keep the frame small so that your eyes don’t get magnified comically.

Your eyes should always be centered in the frame—often, this is a matter of fitting but if your nose tends to be flatter on the top, you might need frames with more height to lose that librarian look.

Don’t let this confine you to exploring all the great eyewear designs out there.

The best way to know if you’re comfortable with a frame is to keep trying them on—what may not look good on the shelf will have a very different feel once you inhabit it.

Why Do My Eyes Twitch?

eyes TwitchWhy do my eyes twitch? We’ve all had this happen at one point or another.  Maybe you stayed up late studying or perhaps you stared at your computer for hours on end.

Eye twitching is also known as an eye muscle spasm or involuntary eyelid twitching.  The technical terms for eye twitching include Blepharospasm or Myokmia in case you like knowing fun facts like that! Blepharospasm is defined as any uncontrolled eyelid twitching caused by muscle contractions around the eyes.  

Eye twitching can occur under the eye or in the upper eyelid and it can affect the right or left eye.  Eye twitching causes include Benign Essential Blepharospasm (which isn’t harmful), dry eyes, Tourette’s syndrome and strained eyes. Eye twitching should not be confused with drooping eyes which requires serious medical attention as soon as possible.

Keep your eyes hydrated and healthy can definitely help ward off eye twitching.  Eye twitching is also a genetic trait that can run in families or it can be caused by certain types of medication.
Taking good care of your eyes is extremely important, so if you’re experiencing an eye twitch that lasts more than seven days, results in your eye being permanently shut, moves into your entire face, causes redness or swelling and/or changes into a drooping eyelid, contact your Optometrist right away.  Please feel free to contact our in-house 20/20 Eyeglass Superstore Optometrist who will be more than happy to see you as soon as possible. –
