Specs Offender - Men's Glasses Advice
Sorry. I really really couldn't resist that title :cool:
But what I'm after is some advice on glasses!
You'd think I'd have cracked it by now given I've been wearing them all my life, but nope!
I'm after a new pair for Christmas (it is, after all, October... :rolleyes:) The issue I have is that my prescription is really thick. What this rules out is really big lenses (anything over 55mm diameter) and rimless or partially rimmed frames. I think I'm an oval face so that's handy - I might err towards being diamond faced though as angular frames have always suited better but my face is quite large and long. Fairly pale skin tone too. The big problem is that my specs blow up my eyes to tremendous proportions - spoils my face I think.
These restrictions in mind what do you think I should go for? I need to play down the size of my eyes and the thickness of the lens.
Those are what I have now; they suit alright but I'm looking for something that will really gel - they've got to be perfect! Money, within reason, isn't too much of an object here. I have to wear them every day and glasses are part of what defines me as a person, for better or worse!
Obviously trying things on helps more but any help anybody can be would be great!
