Eyeglasses for All Face Shapes in 2018 and 2019
by Optoplus / November 2018
Round, oval or rectangular?
Classic, retro-minimalist or vintage-inspired?
Metal, resin or mixed materials?
Oversized or cutting-edge shapes?
ALL of the above!
With the holiday season fast approaching, let’s take a look at the 2018 eyeweartrends that will continue into next year.
Many optometrists and opticians used to be able to articulate in a few words all eyewear trends worth watching. Today, however, such trends are being clearly democratized. Fashion glasses and sunglasses are now available for every face shape, as well as contact lenses for all types of eyes.
Below is an overview of eyeglass frames that you will see in eye clinics and eyewear stores in 2019.
Double Bridge Frames Are King
Straight or curved; made of thin metal or resin (or both)… Double bridge frames are here to stay. Vintage-inspired, modern or classic frames. A whole new line of embellished double bridge frames is coming this season. Nothing better to add a stylish touch!
Stylized Cateye Frames
Available for both ophthalmic glasses and sunglasses, cateye frames have way more than nine lives. They can be more tapered as sunglasses, they can be more tapered; as ophthalmic glasses, they can give you a more retro-chic look.
Thin Metal and Oval-shaped Frames
Even though fully round frames made of acetate are still widely stylish, oval-shaped frames made of thin metal, as well as frames with feminine embellishments, are increasingly popular. It is the return of “jewellery frames” and of gentle, light and comfortable materials.
Mirror, Mirror Tell Me What Colour You Prefer?
The hue and shade of sunglasses are now just as important as their shape. A mirror effect and a pop of colour or faded colours are becoming increasingly popular as they match your own personal style.
Glasses with Blue Light Blockers
Although choosing the right frame is a matter of preference, choosing glasses with blue-light-blocking lenses is a must for anyone exposed to backlit screens. Children, students and professionals should all consider adding these coatings to their lenses. These days, every eyecare clinic discusses this subject with their patients either before or after any eye exam.
