How to Find The Perfect Pair of Eyeglasses

Are you looking for the perfect pair of eyeglasses? Here’s how to work alongside your Calgary optometrist to find the best frame for your lifestyle and needs.

Visiting your optometrist regularly is important because such professionals are dedicated to helping you see better through a wide range of high-quality corrective eyewear options, including contact lenses and eyeglasses.

While contact lenses are becoming more popular, eyeglasses do remain a favourite for patients, because they provide excellent benefits. 

Some of these benefits include the fact that they:

  • provide sharp visual acuity
  • protect your eyes from wind, dust, and other particles
  • are stable, comfortable, and efficient
  • are cost-effective

How To Find The Right Eyeglasses Frame

Choosing the right frame for your eyeglasses is of utmost importance, but because there are so many different styles and materials available, it can become quite confusing to choose the perfect one.

While it’s important to work with your optometrist to find a frame that suits your face shape, budget, and lifestyle, here is a brief guide to eyeglasses frames to help you make the right choice:

Frame Styles

Depending on your specific tastes and lifestyle, there is a myriad of different frame styles to choose from.

These include:

  • Full-Rim Frames: These frames are quite heavy and robust, and they work well for most prescriptions. They’re ideal for patients who are looking to make a statement with their eyeglasses.

  • Rimless Frame: Rimless frames are extremely lightweight and suitable for people who wear their eyeglasses for a long time, or for those who have sensitive skin. They also have a minimalist appearance.

  • Semi-Rimless Frames: These have very similar features to rimless frames, but they offer patients subtle definition and more colour options than the rimless option.

  • Half-Eye Frames: Half-eye frames are often recommended if patients require a second pair of eyeglasses for activities such as reading or other hobbies where high detail is required, as they allow the wearer unrestricted distance vision.


Frame Materials

Once you have chosen the type of frame you want, you must also decide on the kind of material that is best for you.

Here are your options:

  • Titanium and Stainless Steel - These materials are extremely strong, lightweight, and reliable. In addition, they are perfect for sensitive skin since they are hypoallergenic and corrosion-resistant.

  • Plastic - The bridge fittings of plastic frames spread the weight of eyeglasses evenly, providing greater comfort for wearers, making it ideal if you wear your glasses all the time. In addition, they come in a huge range of styles and colours.

  • Monel Metal - Monel metal is a lightweight and corrosion-resistant alloy, that is one of the most popular materials for creating frames. They also come in the widest variety of colour and style options.

  • Carbon Fibre - Carbon fibre is a cutting-edge textile, and it is the most flexible, durable, and lightweight material on the market. It’s perfect for patients with very active lifestyles and for those who want the latest technology and highest quality.
