Stylish new sunglasses are more than meets the eye
(NAPS)—A growing number
of people are seeing the light and
finding sunglasses an ideal com
bination of function and fashion.
Research has shown that
people today are more aware than
ever of the need to protect their
eyes from the harmful rays of the
sun. To accommodate this trend,
the companies that manufacture
sunglasses are providing an out
standing selection of sunglasses
in thousands of styles, shapes and
A major misconception ex
ists in that people believe the
darker the sunglass lens, the more
it will protect the eyes. “Not true,”
says Dr. Jack Weber, O.D., Edu
cation and Research Director for
Marchon Eyewear. Weber says
choosing a lighter or darker sun
glass lens is simply a matter of
personal choice and eye comfort.

With respect to fashion, many
of us are unsure as to what sun
glass shapes and styles best
complement our face shape. Dr.
Weber, Marchon’s Director of
Education and Research, offers
these helpful tips for choosing the
right sunglass frame for your face:
• Oval face. Almost any style
works for this shape of face. Ex
periment with the latest looks such
as wraparounds and geometric
• Round face. Frames should
make the face appear longer and
thinner. In general, look for frames
equal to or slightly wider than the
broadest part of the face. Mini
mize the curves and add definition
with soft, angular, rectangular
styles or double brow styles.
• Diamond shape. This face
shape has wide or high cheekbones
with a narrow forehead and chin.
Oval sunglasses will soften the con
tour of the face, although softly
curved square frames will work as
well. Make sure the styles are no
wider than the top of the cheek
• Square face. This face shape
consists of a strong jawline, abroad
forehead and wide cheekbones. Re
duce the angles with soft, curvy
styles that will give the face some
definition such as cat-eye styles.
The classic oval also works well
for this face shape.
• Oblong face. Widen and shor
ten the face with eyewear styles
that do not extend beyond the wid
est part of the face. Round or square
shapes will look great on this face.
• Triangle shape. This face has a
wide jaw and a narrow forehead.
Soften the lower portion of the face
by accenting the eye area. Styles
such as cat- eyes should angle out
ward at the top comer and be wide
enough to balance the jawUne.
• Heart face. Minimize the upper
portion of the face by choosing
frames no wider than your fore
head and angling outward at the
bottom comers. Very Ught colors
and rimless styles work well on
this face shape.
Remember, there’s more to se
lecting sunglasses than meets the
eye. When selecting quality sun
glasses, buying from a reputable
optical store offers an advantage to
consider ...proper fit Frames that
slide down the nose, sit unevenly
or lean on the back of the ear will
not be worn as regularly as they
