Tips for choosing glasses

If you wear them every day, just for reading, or if you need a backup when you're out of contact lenses, glasses don't have to be a fashion downer. With hundreds of stylish designer frames to choose from, we can update your look and bring out your personality. Let us help you highlight your features and show your confidence. Whether you like the classic silhouette style, the retro cat-eyed frame, or the new bold colors and patterns celebrities have recently been seen sporting, we have them here for you. Work with our optical boutique and find your new look today!

How to find glasses that work for your face shape:

You would be considered an oval shape if your face is longer then it is wide. Those with oval faces can wear a variety of different shapes and styles. The key is to keep the frames as wide as the broadest part of your face. Try a cat eye or rectangular shape, and some added sparkle to bring attention to your eyes.

A square face is as long as it is wide. People who have square faces tend to have broad cheekbones and a prominent jawline. To flatter this shape, look for a frame with round edges or a rimless style. This will balance out your sharp features.

Round faces are generally fuller; they tend to have soft features and measure about the same in length and width. To accent your cheek bones and enhance your face shape choose frames with sharper angles and bold edges. Bring out your personality with the colors and patterns.

Heart shaped or inverted triangle best describes those with a wider forehead and a sharper chin. This is the least common face shape and tends to be the most difficult to shop for. Focus on glasses with oval frames, or a short but wide pair to bring balance to your look.

Have fun finding your perfect frames! With our certified optician and our frame stylist we will have you looking and seeing your best.

Contact Lenses

Technology in the contact lens industry is constantly changing. There are more choices than ever ranging from daily, weekly, or monthly disposables with astigmatism and multifocal lens options. We also offer rigid gas permeable lenses for those needing specialized prescriptions. Our optical department carries the most trusted brands at competitive prices. Standard shipping for your contacts is always free whether you buy a one month, six month, or year supply! If your prescription is up to date in our files, simply place your order over the phone with one of our opticians. Not sure if your prescription is up to date or it just doesn’t feel quite right?
