Criteria for Choosing Eyeglasses
The question of how to choose your new glasses from the array of designer frames is a common one. Many people worry that they will make a mistake, return home and be unhappy with their purchase. However, when you shop at from our St. Louis and St. Charles optical collection, you have nothing to worry about. Our staff will help you evaluate the most important criteria to make the right eyeglasses decision.
The main criteria for eyeglasses frames include:
- Durable construction, made from premium materials
- Contemporary style appeal, in line with your personal taste
- Match the shape of your face and skin tone
- Support your lifestyle requirements
- Enable optimal eyesight with your vision prescription
- Comfortable fit on your face, not too loose or too snug
In order to assess all the above features and help you make your final selection, our opticians will look at your appearance and ask you a few questions about your lifestyle.
Know Your Options: Intro to Frame Styles & Materials
An extensive variety of frames are on the market, but the most typical ones include:
- Full Frame: made of metal or plastic, with a rim that encircles the lenses completely
- Semi-rimless: made of metal or a blend with a metal front and plastic temples; lenses are partially surrounded by metal and secured in place with a nylon cord (generally on the bottom part of the lenses)
- Rimless: constructed in full with two temples and one bridge; these glasses are assembled by drilling holes in the lenses and attaching the structure into these holes. Nothing surrounds the lenses.
Designer frames come in plastic, metal (such as monel and beryllium), titanium, flexon, and marchon (known as a “memory metal”, because they maintain their shape even after twisting). Popular accents include sophisticated leather, creative wood, and semi-precious stones or crystals to add bling. Every material has its pros and cons; ask our opticians for more information when you are browsing the eyeglasses collection in our St. Charles and St. Louis stores.

Kids need to love their glasses, or those glasses will spend more time in their school bag than on their face. However, when a pediatric vision condition is left untreated, it can have a severe effect on learning, development, and all-over performance. That’s why we choose our children’s optical collection carefully, including lines such as OP and Disney. From cool and hip to serious and intellectual, we have a pair of designer frames to make the statement your kid wants. Bring your children to check out the eyeglasses in our St. Louis or St. Charles store, and we’ll point them towards a pair of glasses that will make them feel great about how they look.
