Best Prescription Glasses for Your Face Shape

Besides notoriously cool sunnies, you can also grab stylish prescription glasses at QUAY. Just as you'd take time to track down the perfect pair of shades, look into which glasses frames best complement your face shape. After all, you'd be wearing your prescription glasses to keep your vision crystal clear for all occasions, whether you're driving to work or heading out on a holiday vacation.

What Shape Is My Face?

Identifying your face shape helps you amp up your specs appeal and know what to look for in the perfect pair of glasses. Check out our Virtual Try-On Tool to discover your face shape and get all the deets on the glasses styles that best suit your face below.  

  • Square: A square-shaped face is all about angular features. You can match one with round frames that soften it, although angular frames can also help enhance your features. 

  • Round: A round-shaped face is equally wide and long. Because it's a soft silhouette, glasses with straight lines and angles complement it well. 

  • Oval: Similar to a round-shaped face, an oval-shaped face is slightly longer than it is wide. Frames with lines and angles help balance its soft features. 

  • Triangle: A triangle-shaped face is narrow at the top and wide at the bottom. Any frame featuring bold colors and shapes in the upper part will complement this face shape — think cat eye, square, and oval glasses. 

  • Heart-shaped: A heart-shaped face essentially follows the outline of an inverted triangle, so the forehead is the widest part of the face, and the chin is the narrowest. Rounded and tapered glasses will draw attention to the eyes and cheekbones. 

  • Smaller: Size matters, which is why QUAY also carries scaled-down frames to give those with smaller faces comfortable and snug fits.

Now, let's peek at the best glasses for your face shape.

What to avoid: Those with square faces may want to avoid square frames, but the rules aren't set in stone. In fact, angular frames with sharp lines can help enhance square faces.

  • SIGN OFF RX: SIGN OFF your look with a charming cat eye that'll bring balance to a triangle face with its large frame.
