How to Choose Eyeglass Frames

HowPick the perfect eyewear for your face and personality
If eyes are the windows to the soul, the frames around them should also reflect the wearer. So find a shop with great-looking frames and a good optician to help you pick one that suits your prescription, your personality, and your features. "Ask around, just as you would for a dentist," says Larry Leight, founder of the Los Angeles?based Oliver Peoples eyewear line. For a strong prescription, small frames "keep light in and don't detract from the work of the lenses," says Alain Mikli, owner of the Alain Mikli eyewear company, in Paris. Leight says a frame should generally be no wider than your head, with the center of the lens slightly below eye level. He also notes that an experienced optician can help clients find frames that make, say, a long nose look shorter (try a low-set bridge) or a round face appear thinner (go for angular or square shapes). Picking between two finalists, Mikli opts for fun: "Since glasses can be an obligation," he says, "try to get as much enjoyment from them as possible."
