Choosing the Right Frames

Glasses say so much about your personality and personal style. At EZ Optical, we are happy to work with you in selecting frames that complement your features. Our team of professionals work closely with you to select the proper frames to fit your budget as well as your cosmetic, lifestyle, and vision needs. While working with our experienced staff enables you to select the appropriate frames, we invite you to learn more about which frame styles complement various face shapes.

Select Your Frames

Square

A square face is often characterized by a strong jaw line, a broad forehead, and a wide chin and cheekbones. The width and length of the face are close to being equal. Frames should be selected to make the face look longer and to soften the square angles of the face. Choose frames that are slightly curved (like an oval shape) and that have more horizontal than vertical real estate.

Oval

The oval face is identifiable by its balanced proportions. The forehead is slightly wider than the chin and cheekbones are high. Frames should complement the natural proportions of the oval. Choose frames that are wide or wider than the broadest part of the face and that follow your brow line. Often, diamond or rectangular shapes work best for oval shapes.

Oblong

Although fairly similar to an oval shape, an oblong face is longer than it is wide. The ideal frames will shorten the face by creating a break in the length of the face. Choose frames that have depth and a low bridge to shorten the nose. Try frames that are round, deep, have low-triangle shapes, or that have strong vertical lines.

Round

A round or full face is characterized by having the same width and length. For round faces, frames that add length to the face often work best. Frames that lengthen the face are typically angular, narrow and are wider than they are deep. It is best to avoid round style frames as these will exaggerate the roundness and curves of the face.

Heart

A heart shaped face looks like a heart or a triangle with the point facing down. The forehead is very wide and cheekbones are high while the face narrows towards the chin. Counterbalance the narrow chin by choosing frames that are wider at the bottom. Generally, light colored and rimless frames work best, although aviator, butterfly and low-triangle styles also work well.

Triangle

A base-down triangle face has a narrower forehead with full cheeks and a broad chin. To offset a broad chin, select frames that widen at the top. Great selections include frames that have heavy color accents and detail on the top part of the frames. Cat-eye shapes also work well to add width and emphasize the narrow upper part of the face.

Diamond

A diamond shaped face is often characterized by high, dramatic cheekbones with a narrow eye line and jaw line. This shape is the rarest of all the shapes. Oval frames that are soft in style typically work best to highlight the eyes and cheekbones. Select frames that have detailing, distinctive brow lines, are rimless or a cat-eye shape for best results.

Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

  • Best experience ever! Don't let the small shop fool you... They have an array of designer brands as well as traditional styles to select from. Mustafa is professional,patient and accommodating. I absolutely love my new glasses. I could not be happier.

  • I first heard about EZ Optical from my best friend she gets all her designer glasses from Mustafa. When I got to his store he took the time to get to know me and showed me several frames that brought out my facial features and made me look trendy. I trust his judgement. He also took the time to show me how to remove my glasses so that they dont get loose. He even replaced my nosepads so I would be more comfortable in my new frames.

  • Mustafa assisted me patiently as I tried on more than ten pairs of glasses. He understood my taste and was able to filter out what I would like and what I wouldn't. I didn't buy the same day but he didn't pressure me into purchasing anything and was not annoyed that I may have possibly wasted his time. I did come back because I really appreciated the service and ended up purchasing a pair that I get SO many compliments on! He also educated me on how my insurance would handle my out of network cl

  • Been getting my eyewear at EZ Optical for many years now and I keep coming back for great, fast and affordable service...

  • EZ Optical has the most friendliest staff, they are great with prescriptions and hardly ever have a long wait. Their collections on frames are great; I always get compliments on every frame/glasses I purchase from here. Totally recommend this place!

  • EZ Optical is one of the best places to come to and they offer you the best customer service. We've been coming here for so many years and we can't find ourselves going anywhere else. Mustafa Bhai and his dad are so funny and so cool to be around. They are always nice and when we come to EZ Optical, we feel so comfortable and as if we are home. I don't see why anyone wouldn't want to come here. They are seriously the best.
