How to choose your reading glasses?
Choosing reading glasses may seem like a simple task, but there are actually several things to consider to ensure you make the best choice. Horizane Health has listed some things to consider to help you choose reading glasses.
Make sure that the lenses are at the right diopter. To do this, we advise you to do a reading test directly on our website or to visit an ophthalmologist. For the durability of the lens, we recommend that you choose anti-scratch lenses.
The frame is an important element to consider because it must be comfortable and adapted to your face. There are many different styles and materials, such as metal, plastic, wood or titanium. Choose a frame that fits the shape of your face. It should be lightweight to avoid discomfort.
There are many styles of reading glasses, from the classic to the trendy. It's important to choose glasses that match your personal style and that you like. Here are some tips on how to choose the right model for you:
- Oval face shape: a face shape considered "universal", most eyewear styles are suitable for an oval face.
- Round face shape: Square and angular glasses will add contrast and structure to a round face. Avoid wide frames that will accentuate the roundness of the face.
- Square face shape: Soft, rounded glasses will soften the strong angles of a square face. Avoid square frames that will accentuate the square face shape.
- Heart-shaped face shape: Half-moon-shaped glasses will add width to the lower part of the heart-shaped face, while thin, narrow frames will suit the narrow upper part of the face.
- Diamond face shape: cat-eye glasses with soft rims will suit a diamond-shaped face, while wide, angular frames will add width to the cheeks.
However, there may be exceptions, which is why it is always a good idea to get advice from an optician to choose the pair of glasses that best suits your face shape and personal taste.
Think about the use of your reading glasses. If you use them mainly for reading, a classic frame will be sufficient. However, if you use them for activities such as DIY, we recommend a frame with magnetic temples so you don't lose them.
Don't buy your glasses just anywhere! We recommend that you buy your glasses in a pharmacy, from an optician or on a specialized website.
Choosing your magnifying glasses requires some thought to ensure you make the best choice for your needs. Choose a frame that is comfortable and adapted to your face shape and a style that you like.
