Best Frame Shapes: Round, Oval, Cat-Eye
Square-shaped faces have very strong features, from a wide forehead to a rectangular jaw line. Round, oval, and even cat-eye frames can help to soften these features. In addition, Rimless frames can help to soften square-shaped features.

Best Frame Shapes: Rectangle, Retro Square, Cat-Eye
Heart-shaped or triangle faces are very distinguishable, with a wide forehead and sharp, thin jawline. To balance the pointed chin, choose wide and up-swept frame shapes.
Best Frame Shapes: Rectangle, Retro Square, Round
Oval-shaped faces are the most versatile and can pull off almost any frame shape. However, you must keep proportions in mind. Petite faces look great in rimless and half-rim, while longer faces look great in full frame.
Best Frame Shapes: Rectangle, Retro Square
Round-shaped faces are free from harsh lines, so it’s a good idea to add dimension with your frames. Rectangle and angled frames will add dimension to soft features.

MySpex readers are available in multiple lens strengths, from +1.00 to +3.00. Use this chart to find out what lens strength is appropriate for you.
Print the chart below on a 8.5" x 11" paper. Be sure to print it out as is. Do not adjust it to 'Fit to Page' or change the zoom.
Place the chart about 12-14 inches away from your face, or where you would normally hold a book or newspaper.
With your glasses off, begin to read the lines from top down. The first line you have difficulty reading is your lens strength.
Some MySpex lenses are available in +0.25 increments. If your first difficult line is extremely blurry, consider choosing the strength in between.
If you receive your glasses and they are not the appropriate lens strength, we will gladly exchange your readers within 12 months of your original purchase. Read more on our Warranty Page.
