Choosing Glasses and Sunglasses

Choosing Glasses and Sunglasses

Eyeglasses do not have to be worn strictly for vision correction or for protection. They can also be worn as a fashion statement or accessory. Teens often choose fashion eyewear to match the seasons, their clothes, or even their mood that day. Plano lenses are one option. These lenses do not contain a prescription as they do not have any vision-correcting power, but it is recommended that they should include an anti-reflective treatment. Eyewear, whether for fashion or vision correction, should complement the wearer’s features by:

  • matching the frame color to eye color
  • ensuring that the frame shape contrasts with the face shape
  • choosing a frame size that is scaled to the face size.
