Frame your Image

Frame is the part of eyeglasses connecting two eyepieces by a bridge. It is the combination of hinge, bridge and temple. In simple terms, frame is something that snuggles around the lenses. While choosing glasses, spend a little time on listing out the qualities you seek in spectacles. The list must include frame size, shape and material. It is about convenience in wearing them, and carrying out the regular work. So, one must be careful while opting for eyeglasses.

Full Rim: It is the one that completely encircles the lens.

Size and shape matters while choosing frames. It should suit your face. There are rectangular, square and round shapes. Full frame eyeglasses also reflect a highly sophisticated image.

Half Rim:  The frame that covers only the top of the glass is called half rim or half frame.

Rimless: As the name suggests, rimless are the ones with no frame/rim around the lens. Rimless, most often come in three pieces, with two temple tips and a nose part. It’s an art and involves skill in mounting glasses on them. They are not supported by a frame at all. Only a skillful technician can mount them firmly.


Choosing frames according to the face:








Balanced proportions, considered as the ideal face shape Any type of frame goes with this face shape If you have a small face, don’t go for large glasses


Proportional length and width. Long jaw line and broad forehead. Oval and round frames Angular frames doesn’t look good since adds more weirdness.


Equal length and width with soft curves Rectangular and geometric shapes create balance Small or short frames don’t go with round face since it doesn’t look fuller.


Broad jaw line with a long face. Chin appears to be square. Square frames to give width, so that the face looks balanced.  Rectangular frames make face look longer.


Broad forehead and small, narrow chin with wide cheek-bones. Butterfly and cat-eye style suits the best. Don’t try any frame that broadens the forehead more like top-heavy style.


Narrow forehead and chin with broad cheek-bones. Rimless and oval frames soften cheek-bone angles. Angular and geometric shapes


Wide cheek and chin with narrow eye-line and forehead. Cat-eye and semi-rimless. Narrow frames and low set temples that widens jaws.


Narrow forehead with wide cheek and chin. Cat-eye shapes and high detailing on top-side of the frames. Narrow or rectangle shapes



The frame should complete your face and match your lifestyle. Pick shades that suit your skin tone and hair colour.

Rimless, half rim and full rim have their own qualities and benefits. Picking the frame style depends on personal choice.
