Style Consultation

Facial Features

Selecting a suitable frame for your face shape shouldn't be like trying to fit a square peg into a round hole. There are 4 basic face shapes – oval, round, square and heart shaped.

Oval Shaped Faces

Several styles suit oval shaped faces, including curved, angled, conservative and directional frames.

Round Shaped Faces

Aim to make your face appear longer and thinner with square shaped frames featuring high temples and soft curves. Rectangular, oxford, bevelled and pentagon shapes are recommended for faces with full cheeks and few angles but frames should not be wider than your face.

Square Shaped Faces

Square faces can be softened using curves, slightly angular shapes and asymmetric lines. Frames should be deep rather than wide. Top heavy temples that sit above eye level with help create length. Aviator, oval, panto and high triangle shapes suit square faces.

Heart Shaped Faces

Try to balance your narrow jaw and chin with your cheek bones. Choose low positioned framed temples and frames that taper from the top and flare at the cheeks like cat's eye shapes.


The shape and inclination of your eyes should be harmonious with the rim of your frames. High set eyes are complimented with frames drawn upward and outward. Horizontal frames, such as oval or square shapes, are best suited to round eyes. Narrow set eyes can be enhanced with a dominant trim - temple design, eye - rims that delicately taper inward and a narrow bridge.

Conversely, placing emphasis on the nose zone with strong colouring and rims that taper outward are suitable for wide set eyes.


People are like mosaics, created from many wonderful pieces, large and small, and colourful with each piece being unique and beautiful in its own way. Together these details form a complete picture, a character: our own personality. Our personality determines our actions and encourages us to be confident or to express our timid side, it celebrates being in the centre of attention or remains silent and out of sight. Even our charisma and appearance, styling and style are unique expressions of our personality.

A personality analysis is one of the most important consultation steps to ensure that the eyewear selected is both a part and an expression of the individual's character.

Not everyone feels confident about their own style. Our task is to assist the patient in finding their own personal style, to guide and lead them in the right direction, but most importantly to advise them.

The first impression is decisive. We generally already have a good picture of the patient's personality within only a few seconds and are able to bring it to life with the many choices in eyewear at hand. While different style types such as: classic, easy-going, athletic, self confident, romantic or creative guide us, we don't intend to place people into boxes and reduce them to only a few characteristics. We want to discover the diversity of the personality and take this into account in order to find the perfect pair of glasses.
