A Guide to Our Designer Eyewear

A guide to choosing glasses

Your Face Shape

The shape of the frame in relation to your face shape can have a large impact on your overall look. Find your face shape to see complementary frame shapes — or, go rogue and pick your favorite eyeglasses design and pattern!

  • Round Face: A round face has full cheeks and a wide forehead making angular frames, like rectangular and square shapes, really pop. Choose narrow frames to complement your round full features.
  • Diamond Face: Since diamond faces have a narrow eyeline and jawline with high cheekbones, avoid narrow frames. Instead, choose semi-rimless frames or frames that feature your browline.
  • Heart Face: With a heart shape, the forehead and cheek narrow down to a small chin. With this shape, oval or cat-eye frames work well to balance out your entire look.
  • Oblong Face: An oblong face shape is longer than it is wide with straight cheek lines. Choose square frames or wide aviators to complement your face shape.

Lifestyle & Personality

Do you spend a lot of time outside? Or are you a sedentary person? Take your lifestyle and personality into consideration. If you play sports or are extremely active, then make sure you find a pair of frames that can keep up! Then we can help you decide if you need an anti-reflective coating, sturdy frames, or even a wraparound band.

If you have a bright or bold personality, use stylish or designed frames to further expand that personality!


Do you have a certain designer you love or trust? If the designer is important to you, then find a shape or style from that favorite brand! At Visions Optique, we have brands from a variety of designers, like:

  • Kate Spade
  • Ray Ban
  • Gucci
  • Puma
  • Oakley
  • And more!

Give a call or stop by our eyewear shop to see if we have styles from your favorite designer!

The Cost

In a previous post, we asked what is your vision worth to you? We know that the cost of new prescription eyeglasses can become quite expensive. But when you look at eyewear as an investment that will last you for years or longer, a pair of designer frames actually costs less per month than many other expenses, like a daily coffee or your streaming plans.

But that doesn’t mean you shouldn't come with a budget for your new frames. Consider the cost you want to spend on your prescription eyewear and then find a designer that fits that budget! Our team at Visions Optique can help you find the perfect eyewear that’s within your budget!
