Glasses, if picked appropriately, can improve your best facial features, while hiding your less desirable features. It’s crucial to collaborate with an optician to select a complementary style that works well with your prescription. Opticians become experts in this area so we can assist the many different customers who come to us for aid.

There are numerous considerations to check out when choosing a frame. The initial factor to consider is your face shape. You ought to also consider your hair color, and skin tone. Furthermore, consider what you will be using the frames for, such as basic uses, reading, or sport. Ultimately you must consider exactly what sort of material you like best for the frame, and the lenses.

The first thing to consider when choosing a frame is your face shape. There are generally seven various face shapes, and different frames look best on each different shape. Take a look at this video for an aesthetic explanation of how to establish your face shape:

Now that you understand what shape your face is, what frame is the most flattering?

Oval. Oval faces are symetrical, and are longer than wide, which makes them the easiest to discover frames that are flattering. Almost any frame looks excellent on oval faces.

Square. Square faces have strong jaws and broad foreheads, and are in proportion to one another. A square face looks best with frames that soften the angles of the face.



Round. Rounded faces have soft foreheads and chins, without any angles. A round face looks best with frames that will include angles and add definition to the face. Rectangular frames balance the gentleness of the face. Strong colors are also an excellent option.

Triangle. Triangle faces have slim, wide foreheads and round chins. Faces that are triangle shaped look best with frames that add design details and color at the top to balance the face.

Heart. To balance out a heart shaped face, pick smaller sized frame designs without detail, and a lower set temple. Rectangular, square, and aviator frames will certainly all work with this face shape.

Oblong. Oblong faces have square chins with a face that is longer than it is wide. Oblong faces appear best in round, square, or rectangle-shaped frames, with detailing on the temples.

Diamond. Diamond faces are narrow on the bottom and the top. The very best frames for diamond faces are frames that accentuate the top of the eyes, such as cat-eye shapes, or highly decorative frames.

Thank you for trusting your eyecare with us over the years.  The Foresight Eyecare team follows the government mandate to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.  After December 2020 announcements made by the Alberta Government, our clinic is following the revised Infection Prevention and Control policy by the Alberta College of Optometrists.

Patients interested in obtaining eye exam services or eye care products can be seen by appointment only.  Please call ahead, and staff will arrange an appointment time and ask COVID-19 screening questions.  If you have any symptoms of cough, fever, runny nose or shortness of breath, we ask that you call or e-mail us and do not attend the clinic for your scheduled visit.   Within the clinic, please wear a mask and use the hand sanitizer at reception.  Our clinic complies with the City of Calgary bylaw requiring mask covering over the age of two years old.  For patients who are unable to wear a face covering due to medical reasons, the patient can be scheduled for an appointment at a time when minimal number of other patients are in the clinic such as at the beginning or end of the day to ensure appropriate physical distancing requirements.

We are using disposable disinfectant wipes on all surfaces and devices such as front desk counters, chairs, handles in exam rooms and waiting room.  All eyewear that have been touched by patients are continually being sanitized.   Any toys and magazines are stored at this time.  Examination areas are being sanitized with hospital grade disinfectant.  Debit and credit cards but NO CASH payments will be accepted.

COVID-19 symptoms are not always obvious.  We want to fend off this pandemic and minimize risk to our patients and the Foresight staff as front line health workers.   Contact that is closer than 2 m (6 feet) is to be avoided, with barriers in place when this cannot be avoided. We choose to continue to do our work and cautiously take care of our patients with compassion, humility, gentleness, and patience.   It is a challenging and new experience for many of us, so let‘s support each other and prevent virus spread!  Beyond 2020, our focus is on take care of you and keeping Clean Hands, Clear Heads and Open Hearts.   For more information, please refer to the following web pages or phone Health Link 811.
