Choosing the right eyewear often depends on individual traits such as hair color, face size and even the type of vision correction you need.

Besides complementing your looks, eyewear also need to suit your lifestyle.
For example, a rough-and-tumble child will have far different needs for eyewear than an office professional who spends their day at a desk.

Active people also may need to consider extra eye protection such as sports or safety goggles. For those who love fashion, designer eyewear with embellishments such as crystals and logos are a fun option.

If you have reached your 40s, you will need to consider different eyeglass options for correcting near vision problems caused by presbyopia such as:

  • Progressive lenses
  • Bifocals or trifocals
  • Occupational lenses
  • Reading glasses
  • Computer glasses

In some cases, you may need different pairs of eyewear depending on whether you are driving down the highway or sitting indoors in front of a computer screen.

Your eye doctor or optician can advise you about the right fit for you, as well as discuss coatings and tints that can help you see your best in different circumstances such as low lighting at dusk.
