When you choose a pair of blue light glasses you expect this essential accessory to reflect your personality and your lifestyle.
Hence the importance of taking the time to choose your glasses carefully, taking into account your visual correction, your face shape, your lifestyle and your personality.
Here are some useful tips to help you choose your computer glasses.
Each face has a frame that suits best.
It is important to choose a frame that accentuates your strong features, demonstrate your personality and hides any imperfections.
What anti blue light glasses suit your face best?
For a square or rectangular face
The frames that will suit you best are the large oval models with rounded contours that soften your features. In this case its best to go with thin frames, which will visually lengthen your face. Avoid angular, rectangular or square glasses and small frames.
When choosing computer glasses it is important to get the balance right between the face shape and frame dimensions. For example, avoid heavy frames on a light silhouette, frames with rounded, square, oval or "butterfly" angles. The angular glasses with wide contours give round faces a little “intellectual” look. Metal or brightly colored frames will draw attention to your eyes, nose and mouth.
For a round face
You have the choice between accentuating this shape with thin and round frames, or on the contrary attenuating it with frames with rounded, square, oval or "butterfly" angles. The angular glasses with wide contours give round faces a little "intellectual" look. Metal or brightly colored frames will draw attention to your eyes, nose and mouth.
Watch out for colours that change your complexion, even with very thin frames. Pink, mauve or burgundy shades give good looks, unlike yellow, green, anise or orange. The light shades distributed softly and illuminate the face, while the earthy shades give a serious, even austere, side.
80% of the population have an oval or elongated face
As a result, most colours will suit with the exception, however, of frames that protrude laterally from the face and cause an imbalance in the proportions.
For a triangular or hexagonal face
To reduce the thinness of the chin and the width of the forehead, choose thin glasses that will highlight the vertical features of the face. Rimless glasses will suit you in particular, as well as the slightly curved frames on the upper edge and more oval on the lower edge. Conversely, very round or angular glasses are particularly not recommended.
YES to the extended blue light blocking glasses glasses that re-balance the narrowness of the chin,
YES to all the original forms, butterfly, rhombus,
NO to thick or too rounded frames.
Some basic rules
Eyebrow design plays an important role in facial expression, so glasses should follow the eyebrow line. The frame must partially hide them without them appearing through the lenses.
The frames must in no case touch the face, even during a laugh!
So there are two things to watch out for:
> The width of the nose and the nose bridge.
It is this that will also determine the height of the frame on the face.
> The power of the glasses will determine their thickness. Comfort and aesthetics will flow directly from this.
