Buying a present from an optical shop is a somewhat challenging experience for most people. It feels impossible to ask someone for their prescription without giving your secret away, however, frames are the perfect gift option for anyone who wears glasses. When buying frames from Reeve-Woods Eye Center, there are a few essential things to look out for. Here are a few tips from your local eye care specialist on buying frames as present:
It does not matter if your loved one will only be using their glasses for reading their favorite novel at home, they should always be stylish and elegant. Frames are a great way to individualize your loved one’s glasses. Our well-stocked optical shop has frames from well-known designers such as Gucci, Prada, and Jimmy Choo.
The person who needs the frames will probably need other essentials to take care of their glasses. Consider adding items such as cleaning wipes, a case, or even vouchers for an eye test with one our doctors. They are welcome to schedule in person or over the phone!
No matter how good you think that Gucci or Prada frame at the optical shop looks, they should be suited to the wearers face shape. People with round faces generally need square frames, while people with square faces should get round frames. Bring in a photo of the person you are shopping for and we are happy to make recommendations.
Its always tempting to pick a frame you love, but if you are shopping for another person keep in mind that they will be the one wearing them. If you really want them to love their glasses stick to colors that compliment their skin tone and styles they will wear. Avoid frames that have too much color unless that is what the present recipient is used to. Its easy to pick a frame that is too heavy or too bulky for everyday use, which is why we recommend choosing frames in person.
