MTV did this great article on "How to find the right glasses for your face"
They start with the 7 basic face shapes
Then pair up the appropriately shaped celebrity, with and without their perfect pair of glasses on!
For example: in the photo of Anne Hathaway she is said to have an "oval" face shape, meaning her face is longer in length then it is wide. She has a soft jaw and proportionate structions.
Her perfect pair? Large squared frames, or funky, cat-eyed tips. Anything that can draw attention to the centre of your face works well to keep it looking proportionate, and add more detail to your subtle features.

It is an all too common misconception that yellow tinted or yellow polarized night driving glasses are beneficial for night time driving. The thought is, the yellow or amber color reduces glare and improves contrast.
However, in reality, when driving at night or dusk in already limited lighting conditions, ANY tint further reduces the amount of light transmitted to the eye, and consequently, further impairs vision.
While yellow lenses can be effective for foggy or hazy daylight conditions, they are not effective against headlight glare and should not be worn at dusk or night. If glare from headlights is a problem, the first step should be a thorough eye examination, as this could be an early indication of cataracts or other medical conditions. Book your exam: 905-751-0169
The best option for night time driving is a pair of spectacles with clear lenses and an Anti-Reflective (AR) coating. The AR coating is beneficial in two ways. First, it minimizes internal reflections within the lenses, reducing halo problems, and second, it increases the transmittance of light through the lens to the eye.

Our vision is arguably the most important of our five senses and yet, still, many thousands of York Region residents go without glasses when they really should be wearing them.
Vision deteriorates slowly over time, meaning, most often, we haven't noticed our vision has changed. This is why it's so important to have our eyes checked regularly.
Here are five signs that you may need glasses:
This is the single most likely sign that you need glasses and people tend to do it when they are trying to view distant objects. Squinting temporarily improves your vision because it effectively reducing the size of the pupil in your eye, thus temporarily reducing blurred vision.
Headaches are likely to occur after you have being concentrating on a task for a long period of time. Headaches that are caused by your eyes tend to be at the front of your head (frontal) and at the sides (temporal). The headache will normally manifest as a dull ache which can last for hours.
Holding books further away from you
We have a natural lens in our eye whose function is to focus on objects that are near to us. As we get older so this lens does not work as well and hence we start holding things further away from us. This unfortunately continues to deteriorate as we get older, meaning we need stronger and stronger glasses.
If you find you are struggling to judge distances, such as when you are parking a car, this may mean your eyes are not properly in focus. This can happen if either eye is out of focus from the other.
Getting tired quicker
Our brain is more stimulated when our vision is perfect, meaning we feel awake for longer. Blurred vision can result in tiredness and lack of concentration which can affect performance.
Do you need glasses?
If you have answered yes to any of the above five signs then you should consider booking yourself in for an eye test. 905-751-0169
