The last time I purchased glasses I remember telling the woman who is helping me “I have a round face, I am on prednisone, & I’ve never like to wear glasses. So I don’t want to be rude, but there’s probably nothing you’ll show me that I will be thrilled with. The goal here is just to get something that I will actually wear.”
Now I wish I had known about this web site EasySpecsOnline.com so I could have played around with different frames on a photo of my face & found a few ideas to take with me to the glasses shop.
This web site has something called “VirtualMirror” which is an online application form. You just upload the photo of your face & then try different frames online. Although it is less than perfect it can definitely help you decide what shape of frames are the most flattering for your face.
Then you can save, print or email your image with the frame on to someone else.
