At some point in our lives, many of us will need prescription eyeglasses. Our eyes gradually weaken, and our eyesight decreases due to age and exposure to environmental factors like UV rays. It gets more and more difficult to read things, such as street signs, or make things out clearly. But what about choosing the right prescription eyeglasses? As a woman, you want to have the most up-to-date styles, affordability, and quality construction. It's possible to find that perfect pair of womens prescription eyeglasses in our selection.
Prescription eyeglasses for women differ from those for men in that they tend to have angular, softer, or circular frames with blunt edges as well as a narrower, shorter bridge and thinner stems. That's because women have smaller, narrower faces and more delicate facial structures than men. Women's eyeglasses also tend to come in more vibrant, playful, or lighter colors. Overall, although the differences seem subtle, the biggest difference is the frame size. Just as with choosing a too-large or too-thick frame, if you choose men's eyeglasses, your face will be overwhelmed.
Choosing women's eyeglasses is first and foremost about their construction, and then it's about their style. Once you have an idea of your face shape, you can follow with choosing a frame shape. Rounder faces such as oval, round and oblong will have more similar frame shapes than the angular diamond, triangle, rectangle, and square ones. Alternately, you can go for a general frame shape, such as cat eye, that suits several faces and narrow it down to the particular style that looks best on you.
Our selection of women's eyeglasses offer single-vision lenses. They come in several designs with lens colors that vary from clear to deepest black, plus additional options like mirrored lenses, polarization, and blue light protection upgrades.
