Specsavers, Liverpool can help you find the right glasses for you. Dr Nigel Best, Clinical Spokesman for Specsavers, advises on glasses that will fit any face shape and a range of lens options.
Why are the right glasses important?
“The first thing that people see when they meet you is your face – your smile, your teeth, your hair, your eyes, and maybe your glasses. Everyone has something to say about themselves. With so many different styles to choose from, glasses can drastically change your appearance. But the right eyeglass fitting isn’t just about the image of the individual. A good fit isn’t just about comfort, it’s about accurate formulation and clean vision.”
What can I do to ensure a secure fit?
Specsavers Liverpool uses state-of-the-art image processing software that runs on a tablet and uses a camera to record your exact dosage range. It’s a quick and easy process, and because it’s unique to each customer’s size, you’ll get a perfectly fitted pair of glasses. What’s more, the virtual frame styler software allows you to see yourself in your glasses from any angle, allowing you to see yourself as others see you. These things, along with our qualified frame stylists, will make sure that your glasses not only fit you perfectly, but look good on you as well.
How do I face my new glasses?
The point is that the size of the frame is proportional to the size of the face. For example, if you have a small face, don’t choose a large frame. In most cases, the width of the frame should not be wider than the full width of the face at the temples.
How high should the top of the frame be?
Usually, with the exception of sunglasses, it’s best if they cover the eyebrows or are a little below – never above or they may look as if they have two sets of eyebrows Make sure the bottom edge of the frame isn’t about the cheek.
Let us help you with our professional staff and state-of-the-art technology. The frame styler scans your face to adjust the shape of your glasses to the shape of your head and then adjusts the results to the latest fashion trends.
How do I match my face type to my new glasses?
Again, the skills of our specialist frame stylists are here to help you. For example, oval or round glasses tend to soften the features of a person with a square, angular face. On the other hand, glasses with square, angular frames accentuate angular features and are generally not recommended unless you are aiming for a purposely sharp style, like Clark Kent in Superman.
What if you have an oval face?
Oval faces are usually twice as long as wide faces, meaning they can be worn in more or less any style – round, angular, bold – but if it makes your face look longer, it’s best to avoid a very narrow frame. The exception is to wear a frame that is slightly wider than the widest part of your face.
What about a triangular face?
It is the widest in the jaw, narrowing upwards towards the forehead. We recommend a frame that adds width to the narrow part of the face and really draws the eye. For more information on how to make your glasses fit your face, please visit our website.
Not sure what your face looks like? What can you do?
Take a good look at yourself in the mirror and know the typical face shapes, such as oval, square, and heart shapes. You can also ask your friends and relatives to do it for you. When a friend or partner chooses a pair of glasses, he or she often accompanies the customer.
Again, of course, we are happy to help you with our professional staff and state-of-the-art technology. Styler frames adjust the shape of the glasses to the shape of the head, scanning the face and matching the results to the latest fashion trends, developing 36 initial recommended images and refining them so that you can view the image in a different frame without removing the glasses.
Do you mean a professional assembly team? What is it that gives them the status of “specialist”?
We are very proud of our medication optics and optical assistants. Our dispensing opticians are highly qualified professionals who have received at least three years of academic and practical training to qualify.
What are they actually doing?
We issue and fit eyeglasses and other optical aids for children and adults based on prescriptions written by optometrists and ophthalmologists. They take measurements of the frame and face to ensure the correct fit and alignment. He also advises on lens types, frames and styling.
Many of our opticians and optical assistants have completed specialist training in frame styling – the Frame Perfect course was created in cooperation with the London School of Styling.
What about the lens arrangement?
At Specsavers Liverpool, we offer a wide range of lenses. Which type is best for you depends on many factors, including your lifestyle, work, your preferences and visual needs.
A monofocal lens covers the entire lens on one prescription, and most people under 40 choose this lens because it only requires one prescription. Therefore, if you only need glasses for one type of vision, you can ask your optician to prescribe them for you. Specsavers glasses come with a free anti-wrinkle treatment for standard monofocal lenses.
What about a bifocal lens?
A perspective lens is a convenient option for those who need clear focus at two different distances. Bifocal lenses achieve this by combining two different formulas into one lens. For example, an office worker may need indirect vision to see a computer screen at close range and a close-up view to see a document.
What is the difference between a bifocal and a zoom lens?
Bifocal lenses are similar to bifocal lenses, but instead of two different prescription areas, there is a gradient between the prescription areas so that you can clearly see many distances. At Specsavers Liverpool, we also offer various lens accessories and treatments. For those with high recommendations, there are lenses with extravagant + light that improve the appearance and comfort, the reactions darkened by sunlight and lenses in shades suitable for applications such as sunlight and driving.
