Create a positive impact in any situation
Sometimes you see someone wearing an expensive suit or outfit and perhaps a nice piece of jewellery, and yet balanced on their nose is an old, rather scratched pair of spectacles. It's an interesting phenomenon!
People look at your face first, particularly your eyes, and if you're wearing unflattering or unfashionable glasses it's a bit like wearing scuffed and scruffy shoes. What impression will you make?
This attitude to glasses is a British phenomenon, rarely found in Europe or the USA, and is probably a legacy of NHS spectacles. Many British people treat their spectacles like a hearing aid or a white stick, when in fact today glasses have become more of a fashion, beauty and personality statement, rather than a purely functional piece of equipment.
The most flattering frames will look as though they were specifically designed for you, while the wrong frames can draw attention to your bad points. At Lesley Arkin Optometrist our opticians are trained to help you find the right frame for you and your lifestyle, so please ask for our guidance.
