HOW TO CHOOSE THE APPROPRIATE FRAME
The characteristics of your face are a good guide when picking the perfect eyewear.
A face can be classified into four main categories :
- oval: people with oval-shaped faces have a wide and varied choose. There is not a limit as to what of glasses and in what shape you should buy. You can choose the style you love, but try and aim for frames slightly on the wide side. We suggest you to avoid narrow frames that draw attention to a narrow eye line
–round, people with a round face should try rectangular frame styles. Your face will appear slimmer and longer. The narrow style of rectangular frames will create balance with softer, rounder facial features. Choosing these frames styles there will be the illusion of a longer face rather than just a round one, and a more defined shape overall. You can choose rectangular shaped frames, frames with colour or decorations on the arms. We suggest you to avoid small or round shapes and oversized frames which will make your face look rounder.
- diamond: people with a diamond face should draw attention to the eyes, giving this area more width and balancing the face. To highlight the eyes and soften the cheekbones, consider rimless or semi-rimless, frames or oval and cat-eye shapes. You should choose cat-eye frames hat emphasize the cheek bones. We suggest you to avoid narrow frames that draw attention to narrow eye line
- square: people with a square-shaped face should to consider oval frames that are narrow in width, which will make a square face look longer and soften the angles. This frames style can soften the jaw line, place emphasis on the eyes and lengthen the nose. They look of balance with the rest of the face. You can choose a round and oval style frames with sides set at the top of the frame. We suggest you to avoid thin, angular and square styles, Low-set temples or colour accents on the bottom of the frames that draw emphasis to the chin.
-oblong: people with an oblong face longer should try the wider glasses . Since they are wide, they will make your long face appear shorter and wider, which is the ideal contrast you could give a face shape that is longer than it is wider. You can also try frames that have more depth than width, decorative or contrasting temples that add width to the face, or a low bridge to shorten the nose. You can choose aviator frames. We suggest you to avoid narrow, rectangular frame shapes, Short frames that accentuate face length.
- triangle: people with a triangular face should try frames that are wider at the bottom, very light colors and materials and rimless frame styles. You can choose frames that are wider on the bottom, with one colour and made of a light material. We suggest you to avoid frames that wide at the top, styles with a bold upper and light lower rim.
HOW TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR OWN GLASSES
Proper care and cleaning of the glasses not only ensures a better vision but also extends the life of the glasses.
Improper care may also result in damage to your frames. The following tips will ensure that your frames remain as attractive as the day you bought them:
If you have to clean your spectacle lenses quickly, please don't be tempted to use your shirt sleeve, scarf, etc. For cleaning your lenses when you are not at home, ZEISS lens wipes are the perfect solution – they take up practically no space and are immediately ready for use. And all without harmful additives.
If necessary, a simple microfibre cloth also will also fit the bill, but dry cloths are not always ideal, especially when it comes to removing greasy substances. It is better to first moisten the cloth with a cleaning spray and then clean the lens.
We suggest you to washing glasses every morning, paying special attention to the frames and earpieces, where hair product and makeup tend to rub off. Whatever you do, don't use the most handy form of water to clean your lenses. Soap, warm water and a dry cloth are all you need, once a day, to keep glasses optimally clean and functional.
