Eyeglass fashions for men and women are continuing to merge, as gender boundaries soften and the new age arrives. After fixing cataracts, many clients still require readers. Where this affects both partners, it makes sense to have interchangeable eyeglasses. Here we consider the Top 10 eyeglass fashions for Fall 2017 both men and women prefer.

How to Choose Spectacle Frames: Our Optometrist Speaks

Fashions come and go, but the fundamentals remain the same. The primary purpose of eyeglasses is positioning the lenses correctly and it’s important to wear spectacles in approximately the same position. Consult your optician before you shop among the Top 10 eyeglass fashions for Fall 2017

If you need a single-vision lens for reading or wear plain lenses as a fashion statement than any frame-size will do. If, however, your optician prescribes bifocals or trifocals, you will need a larger viewing area through a deeper frame. If you have sensitive skin, you may like to limit your choice to hypoallergenic plastic.

Your lifestyle has a bearing on which of the Top 10 eyeglass fashions for Fall this year will work best for you. If you are a computer worker, then a deep reading area will prevent your neck from ‘scrolling down’. If you have a robust lifestyle and don’t always treat your eyeglasses with respect, our advice is to stay away from delicate metal frames in favor of sports eyeglasses and tougher plastic frames.
