A great pair of glasses can make a huge difference. Not only can a great pair of glasses look good, but they can feel good, help you see better than you ever have, and can make you forget that you’re even wearing them. Faces come in all sizes, and glasses should sit in the right position and be the right proportion to the rest of your face in order to avoid distracting from your appearance or obstructing the rest of your face. Eyewears evolved in different decades and were always part of fashion statement.

1900s-1930s : Round and Cat Eye Shape

This period was marked by lorgnette and pince-nez style glasses. Worn by men and women alike, lorgnette glasses did not rest on the wearer’s face, but rather were spectacles held up to the face with a handle. These were lauded by women because they did not fully cover the face, and they were used more as an accessory than a practical, vision-enhancing tool.

1930s-1950s

The biggest trend in eyewear in the 1940s was surely the “browline.” Introduced in 1947 and combining both metal and plastic, the top section of the frame is made in plastic, giving them their distinctive, signature faux eyebrow look. The browline was so popular after the second World War that it made up 50 percent of all eyeglass sales moving right into the 1950s.

1960s-1980s

As can be expected given the political and social climate of the 1960s, the decade’s eyewear was equally wild and varied. John Lennon, a trendsetter in more ways than one, popularized the round teashades–a style rumored to hide the effects of drug use and were considered a symbol for liberal ideologies.

Oval Face Shape

An oval is considered the holy grail of face shapes. Those lucky enough to have a face that is noticeably longer than it is wide and with a rounded jaw should try not to look too smug when we say you can wear pretty much any frame available.

Square

A face with a strong jawline and broad forehead will look good with rounded sunglasses that contrast with the face shape. Shop for sunglasses that have rounded bottom edges with top edges that are fairly straight across, like classic wayfarer sunglasses.

Heart

Heart-shaped faces usually look nice with frames that are wider on the bottom or have some kind of detail on the lower half of the frames. Be sure that the frames are slightly wider than the forehead for a proper fit

Triangle

A face with a narrow chin and wide forehead will look best with sunglasses that are heavier toward the bottom edge, like aviator sunglasses. You can find pair of aviator sunglasses in metal frames as well as plastic, so you have many to choose from.

How to remove spectacles? What is LASIK? How is it done?

LASIK or laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis is procedure commonly used for removal of spectacle number (Glasses) of the patient. The surgery is done on the cornea which is the outermost clear part of the eye. A flap is created as a part of the process followed by laser delivery on the cornea to remove the glass number. The flap is positioned back at the end of the procedure.

Why Glasses leave impressions and marks on Face, Nose and Under Eyes – Why?

  • Heavy glasses form impressions on the bridge of the nose. With long term usage, the marks deepen.
  • Continued usage will cause pigmentation.
  • Tight eyewear also causes marks.
