How do you find glasses that suit you? Did you switch to contacts? What would you recommend for x faceshape?4 posts omitted. Click reply to view.
Nah I'm okay with glasses, I don't wear makeup and I have pretty bad bags under my eyes.
>>9529>tfw tried them as an adult but it just gave me horrible dry eyes despite using moisturizing eye drops
Destined to look like a dweeb forever.
Also was constantly afraid of scratching my eye due to fragility because of the dryness and just having poor control over my strength when taking them out.
Be careful, anons. Beauty is fleeting but blindness is until death.
I want to change the contacts. I have a lot of prescription (-6.50 diopters) and I feel that the glasses make my face look very strange. I also wear braces. You can imagine how I look, lol. Advice on contacts?
i tried an app that can scan your face and you can just virtually see how each type of glasses look on you
scary and cool
btw how do you fix your glasses if one of the handles broke?
The only way to figure out which glasses suit you is to try a bunch on.
I spend a really long time trying on basically every pair in the shop (with a few exceptions: frameless glasses, ugly/loud colours, any that have those nose thingies and frames made of metal) and then narrow it down to a few pairs. By that stage, I sometimes ask the optician for their recommendation (especially if I'm stuck between two or three pairs) since they have a good idea of what face shapes suit what frames. Some people might find it embarrassing to do this but you're going to have to wear these for 2+ years and you're going to have to wear them at work, in photos and going out so they should be perfect.
I personally hate contacts. You can only wear them for a certain amount of time and then you'll have to put your glasses back on so I don't really see the point. Plus you always have to carry your glasses around in your bag anyway. They're always dry even if you use eye drops and that makes them so uncomfortable. Also they're really expensive and I've just gotten used to how I look with glasses on at this point.
