How to Pick Your Clear Frame Glasses

There are a few factors that go into how to pick your clear frame glasses. You want to make sure you choose the right frames for your face shape and style, the right type of glasses, and make sure they fit you correctly.

Here are some tips to help you pick your clear frame glasses!

Know What Kind of Glasses You Need

Knowing what kind of glasses you need will help you get the most out of your clear frame glasses. 

  • Do you need reading glasses? 

  • Do you hate squinting in the sun and worrying about eye protection? 

  • Do you want to find glasses that will help reduce blue light? 

Thanks to our wide selection of eyeglasses, there’s a pair of glasses for every need.

Reading Glasses

Some people worry about whether or not they need reading glasses, but chances are you’ll know. There are key signs that typically begin happening around the age of 40 and develop until 65. These signs mark a condition known as presbyopia, the clinical term for normal wear and tear on your vision.

The overuse of your eye muscles causes this condition with time. These muscles that help you focus can become tired, and your vision may seem blurry because of it. Presbyopia is especially noticed when trying to read or focus on small details. While these clinical terms can seem daunting, presbyopia usually isn’t dangerous and is easy to fix with reading glasses!

If you start holding newspapers, magazines, menus, and your phone far away just to make out the words, you might have presbyopia. You may also have trouble reading or focusing on details as your vision can seem blurry, and unable to focus.

If you relate to any of these symptoms, you may need reading glasses! There are a few ways to find out what strength reading glasses you need. The first way is to visit your eye doctor. Your doctor will be able to help you determine your glasses needs so you can find the perfect pair for you. If you’re unable to find an eye doctor, here are some online tools that can help.

Diopter Chart

A diopter chart is a way to measure what strength reading glasses you need by testing different size words and how well you can read them. Use this printable diopter chart and hold it 14 inches away from your face without any glasses on.

Start reading the chart where the words are the smallest and go down the list as they get bigger. If you can’t clearly see a sentence, move on to the next one. Stop when you get to words you can read clearly and look to the right of the words where a plus sign and a number will be. This is the strength you need.

Helpful Tip: If you’re between two lines, always choose the lowest glasses strength!

Trial and Error

Old-fashioned trial and error also work to help you find your reading glasses. Head to your local glasses store and try on a few different reading glasses powers. Or order a few neighboring powers online and return those that don't work. Whichever one helps you read the best is what you should choose.

Sunglasses

If you spend a lot of time outdoors hammocking, fishing, or watching outdoor sports events, it’s important to protect your eyes. Our sunglasses offer 100% UVA-UVB lens protection with scratch-resistant lenses, so they’ll offer protection for your eyes even in the roughest climates. From polarized lenses and reading sunglasses to driving sunglasses to help protect your eyes on the road, there’s sun protection for everyone.

Blue Light Glasses

If you spend a lot of time in front of the computer, on your phone, or gaming, blue light glasses may be for you. Overexposure to blue light can harm your sleep cycle and damage your health if your eyes are left unprotected. Blue light glasses may be able to help.

Our blue light glasses are made with patented lens technology to help block approximately 30% of potentially harmful blue light*. If you’re looking for a pair of blue light glasses, we’ve got tons of styles and frames to choose from. Check out your blue light options here.  

Know What Style Frames You Need

When choosing clear frame glasses, choosing the right style frames for your face shape is important. If you choose a frame that accentuates your facial features too much, you may end up looking too sharp or too soft.

The general rule of thumb is to find glasses with frames that balance out your face by being an opposite shape. For instance, if your face is sharper, opt for glasses with rounded, soft edges to create a natural balance. If your face is rounder, choose frames with angles and sharp edges to add dimension to your features and balance out your features. Here are some more in-depth examples of the kind of frames you need for your face shape. 

Glasses for Sharp Features

Face shapes with sharper features include square faces, triangular faces, and sometimes heart-shaped faces. Each face shape looks best when complemented by an opposing frame, one that softens out angles with rounded edges.

For instance, Square faces are typically wide all around, only narrowing at the chin. These glasses benefit from round or oval frames that are as wide as the jawline to draw attention away from the square edges.

Glasses for Soft Features

The same principle applies to soft facial features. If you have a rounder face, such as a circular, oval, or rounder heart-shaped face, choose glasses that complement this shape by being the opposite. Square glasses and geometric frames can add angles to your face, giving your features dimension and depth and balancing your face out for a more natural look.

How to Style Clear Frames

Here are some tips on how to style clear frame glasses.

Pick Slightly Oversized Frames

No matter what face shape you have and what style of clear frame glasses you choose, there’s a secret trick to making them stand out. Simply choose glasses frames that are slightly oversized. This draws more attention to your eyes and less attention toward your facial features, making a statement.

Wear Lighter Clothes

A lighter outfit will complement your clear frame glasses, helping them stand out. While your clear frame glasses will easily match no matter what you wear, wearing lighter colors helps them stay bold, while wearing darker colors may overpower them and draw the attention away from your eyes.

Wear Neutral Makeup

Lastly, it’s important to wear neutral makeup with your clear frame glasses. Wearing bolder makeup can draw attention away from your eyes and create an imbalanced look on your face. Instead, use lighter foundation and concealer, neutral color eyeshadow, and opt for natural brows to create a balanced, bold, beautiful look!

Clear frame glasses are some of our favorites in the latest glasses trends, and learning what kind of clear frames you need and how to rock them is easy with this helpful guide. Take a look for yourself! Check out our clear frame glasses here to find the perfect pair for you!
