Here are ways that you can select the absolute right pair of reading glasses for your need:
1. Frame Shape and Size:
For a smaller prescription, narrow lenses work well but for higher prescription go for lenses that are wider to allow the entire prescription to fit in well.
2. Face Type:
Is your face round, diamond or oval? The frame you pick must compliment your personality.
Here is a quick go to guide:
Round: Square or Rectangle wider than your face
Square: Oval or round glasses
Oval: Geometrical with a strong bridge
Heart: Round or Aviators
Make sure you pick the colour of the frame as per your skin tone:
Warm Tone: If your skin reflects of yellow, bronze or brown then pastels may not be your best bet, neither will black or white. Instead pick tortoise shell, brown, gold or beige.
Cool Tone: If your skin reflects pink or blue undertones pick colors that don’t subdue your complexion and pick dark tortoise shell, olive green, mauve, purple or pink.
