Choosing eyeglass frames in Sacramento isn't always an easy task, and a single pair doesn't always fit every situation. There are many things you need to consider when picking out frames in Sacramento including.

Your Own Budget

Eyeglasses in Sacramento can be a hit to your budget, especially if you have a complex prescription.

When you wear your eyeglasses in Sacramento, you still want to feel comfortable with how you look. At Arena Eye Care Inc., we have a wide selection of both affordable and designer frames and can direct you toward what has been most popular in your price range.

Your Own Style and Activity Level

If you consider yourself eccentric you might want a wilder looking or colorful frame, and if you are more conservative, you might want something that blends into your face a little more. It is even possible you might want two pairs in order to show different sides of yourself. At Arena Eye Care Inc. you can take your time trying on different pairs of eyeglass frames in Sacramento in order to capture the look you want. When searching for style, you can look for frames based on style rather than price, because it will help you discover the exact look you are going for.

When choosing frames, you'll also want to consider how active you or your children are. If you play a lot of sports, or just hand kids reaching for your glasses, choosing something durable and flexible may be an important component of what you choose.

Your Face Shape

The shape of your face makes a big difference of what eyeglass frames in Sacramento will look best. Those with square faces look best in oval frames, and oval faces look good in more rectangular shaped glasses. Narrow frames are often recommended for round faces. Your face might also be a base up or base down triangle, which can influence your choice in a different way. It can be hard for some people to identify the shape of their own face, and at Arena Eye Care Inc., our staff is prepared to offer any guidance we can to help assure that you are happy with your purchase.

Square Face

A square face is often characterized by a strong jawline, a broad forehead, and a wide chin and cheekbones. The width and length of the face are close to being equal. Frames should be selected to make the face look longer and to soften the square angles of the face. Choose frames that are slightly curved (like an oval shape) and that have more horizontal than a vertical real estate.

Oval Face

The oval face is identifiable by its balanced proportions. The forehead is slightly wider than the chin and cheekbones are high. Frames should complement the natural proportions of the oval. Choose frames that are wide or wider than the broadest part of the face and that follow your brow line. Often, diamond or rectangular shapes work best for oval shapes.

Oblong Face

Although fairly similar to an oval shape, an oblong face is longer than it is wide. The ideal frames will shorten the face by creating a break in the length of the face. Choose frames that have depth and a low bridge to shorten the nose. Try frames that are round, deep, have low-triangle shapes, or that have strong vertical lines.

Round Face

A round or full face is characterized by having the same width and length. For round faces, frames that add length to the face often work best. Frames that lengthen the face are typically angular, narrow and are wider than they are deep. It is best to avoid round style frames as these will exaggerate the roundness and curves of the face.

Heart Shaped Face (or Base-up Triangle)

A heart-shaped face looks like a heart or a triangle with the point facing down. The forehead is very wide and cheekbones are high while the face narrows towards the chin. Counterbalance the narrow chin by choosing frames that are wider at the bottom. Generally, light colored and rimless frames work best, although aviator, butterfly and low-triangle styles also work well.

Base-down Triangle Face

A base-down triangle face has a narrower forehead with full cheeks and a broad chin. To offset a broad chin, select frames that widen at the top. Great selections include frames that have heavy color accents and detail on the top part of the frames. Cat-eye shapes also work well to add width and emphasize the narrow upper part of the face.

Diamond Face

A diamond-shaped face is often characterized by high, dramatic cheekbones with a narrow eye line and jawline. This shape is the rarest of all the shapes. Oval frames that are soft in style typically work best to highlight the eyes and cheekbones. Select frames that have detailing, distinctive brow lines, are rimless or a cat-eye shape for best results.

This is a general guide and is only intended for reference. Our experienced and trained staff will assist you in selecting frames what work best for your lifestyle.
