If you’re getting ready to buy glasses for men, be sure to look at the different options. Glasses can work wonderfully for both men and women, especially when they are matching pairs. However, there are certain things that men need to know about buying their own frames. The following are tips for men on how to choose a good pair of glasses.
Round-faced men can handle almost any pair of glasses frames; in fact, square-shaped and rectangular faces tend to suit most perfectly. They can benefit a little from stronger contrasts in glasses frames, such as square or rectangular, but rounded faces typically benefit from a weaker contrast, such as circular or oval. Men with smaller foreheads will tend to benefit more from strong contrasts, such as teardrop or diamond.
Men with larger foreheads may also want to avoid frames that have a lot of horizontal lines since they will overpower the face. Square and rectangular glasses frames tend to be the best choices for all-round faces eyeglasses. Since most men have a square face, they will benefit from a good balance of round frames with square frames or a rectangular frame with a rounded forehead.
When choosing eyeglasses frames for men, the shape of the lenses is an important factor. Most men have smaller eyes than women, so they need round lenses that are the same size as their lenses. Many times, a round lens will not fill the eye fully, leaving a shadow or a crescent. This effect is minimized if a man wears sunglasses with his eyeglasses. In addition, a man’s glasses may reduce glare if the frames are darker, lighter frames.
Many people opt for lightweight frames because they are easier to carry around. However, lightweight frames can also make eyewear prone to falling off. If a man wears his eyewear near his belly button, it is more likely to fall off than when wearing it over his shoulders. Titanium eyeglasses tend to be less prone to falling off than metal frames. The extra weight of titanium eyewear allows for easier carrying, which makes it a popular choice for men who do not wear a watch.
Men who have a narrower face should look for glasses frames that are wider at the bottom, to add width. Men with a narrow face should choose eyewear with a larger top part, to add width to the bottom part of the eyewear. These wide top rim glasses frames are also good for men who don’t want to give their eyes a block appearance. In addition, these types of eyewear provide a clean line between the top and bottom of the eyewear and help create the cleanest personal style.
Reading glasses are an excellent option for people who need reading glasses, but who would also prefer a style other than reading glasses. Ranging from black to dark brown, there are a number of different designs in reading glasses. Most of these designs feature black rimless eyeglass frames in either silver or black color. Some of these rimless eyeglasses even feature blue, gray, and brown rimless eyeglass frames. There are a number of different reading glasses styles that fit every individual’s personal style.
