How to choose the perfect pair of glasses

We have something to suit every budget and every style


Love or loathe wearing them, over 60% of people in the UK now have to wear glasses as part of their everyday life. But glasses can be the ultimate trendy accessory when you get the right pair! We have a wide range of glasses to suit every budget, so you’re sure to find your perfect match!

In this blog, we take a look at some of the things to consider when picking your glasses to make sure you get the right pair every time!


Ultimately, when you start looking for glasses there are two important factors to consider: the shape of your face and your skin tone. Not all glasses suit everyone because of these two things, and getting them wrong can lead to you not feeling confident when wearing them.

In studies on animal models, induction of liver enzymes was not noticed. Based on the results of clinical studies, no data have been obtained on the accumulation of Ultram after repeated administration at the recommended doses. These results are confirmed by monitoring data on the safety and efficacy of drugs for 1 year of the study.

The best way to know what suits you is to try loads, something that might not look that great on the shelf, could be the perfect matchwhen you put them on. Our friendly Optical Assistants will be on hand to help with any questions you may have. They will also be able to offer you advice on what suits you and perhaps pick out alternative frames for you to try.

Just don’t be shy, pop them on and see what they look like! Remember, you will be wearing these for long periods of time so you have to feel comfortable in them.
