  • How To Determine the Best Frame for You
    1. What is your Face Shape?   See Face Shape Guide: How to Choose the Best Glasses for Your Face Shape
    2. What is your Face Size?
    3. What is your Skin Tone or Coloring?
    4. What is your Lifestyle?
    5. Do the Frames Fit Your Personality?

    Design, material and treatments are the three components that make up a pair of prescription lenses. It is important to select the right combination of these elements for your particular visual needs and to always consult your eye care professional.

    When choosing a frame, the shape and size of the frame should enhance the color of your eyes, complement your skin tone and play up the best features of your face shape.  Most people need more than one pair of glasses, such as one for everyday wear, computer eyeglasses, reading glasses and another for outdoor activities. Having different style frames for different activities and moods makes wearing glasses fun.

    With all the choices available, the experience can be daunting without the right guidance. Our experienced specialists are here to help you. (Ask for Doug Wohl)

  • Why Frame Fit is Important

    The style of the glasses you choose will help you look your best.  But, the fit of your glasses is just as important. This is why it is so important to try on frames before buying. Ordering online could be an expensive mistake.

    • Glasses that do not fit properly can look out of place and detract from your appearance.
    • Glasses with a poor fit can be uncomfortable. they can press uncomfortably against your ears, slide down your nose, and fall off or pinch the bridge of your nose. I have seen so many people wearing distance glasses at the tip of their nose.
    • When your glasses are uncomfortable, you are not going to wear them as often as you should. And if you are not wearing your glasses as prescribed, you are putting your vision at risk, and possibly your safety and the safety of those around you.
    • If your glasses do not fit as they should, they may not be correcting your vision properly. This is particularly important with bifocals or progressive lenses
  • Face Size Determines Frame Measurements

    For the most accurate frame measurement, we welcome you to try on frames at Wohl Optics optical shop. In general, adults fall into three ranges of widths and eye sizes:

    • Small Face:  45mm - 49mm, or 50mm - 55mm for sunglasses
    • Medium Face: 50mm - 55mm, or 55mm - 60mm for sunglasses
    • Large Face:  56mm and up, or 60mm and larger for sunglasses
  • So Many Eyeglass Options

    What Type of Prescription Lenses Should You Choose for Your Frames?

    • Single Vision Lenses
    • Lined Bi-Focal Lenses
    • Trifocals
    • Progressive Lenses

    What Coatings on the Lenses do You Really Need and What is Marketing Fluff?

    • Anti-reflective
    • Mirror
    • Scratch Resistance
    • UV Protection
  • How to Determine Frame Quality

    The most reliable way to assess frame quality is to hold the frames in your hand and feel them.  Do they feel sturdy and solid?  Do the hinges open and close smoothly, with the same amount of tension throughout the bend?  We will give you our professional opinion to give you insight to quality, as well.  Just because a frame has a designer name, does not mean the quality is good, so keep your eyes open and ask questions. 

    Please remember we will special order any frames for you.  And, we take vision insurance and accept eye insurance from many companies, adding one more way for you to save money on your exams and eye wear.
