Shoppes of Angus Glen Optometry Now Open in Markham #AngusGlenOpt

I got my first pair of eyeglasses in 1983. I was 13 years old and needed reading glasses. And they were HUGE. Such was the style back in the day. Over time I went from large, plastic frames to small, metal ones, and gradually worked my way back to plastic again. Over the years, as my eyes have worsened, it's become more of a struggle to pick out new frames. I mean, how am I supposed to make good choices when I can hardly see my face in the mirror! It's a problem, and that's why I think it's important to bring along a trusted friend, or to develop a great relationship with your optician - you need someone else to make sure you don't make a terrible mistake. This is your face we're talking about.

This past weekend Boo and I attended the grand opening of the new Shoppes of Angus Glen Optometry. The business is owned by a husband & wife team of optometrists who provide quality eye care and fashionable lenses and sunglasses for families. We tried on lots of frames. Lots. Here are our favourites, which we had posted on Facebook for some crowd-sourced advice.
All gorgeous designer frames from Prada, Michael Kors, and Tory Burch. I think the MK in the upper right are my faves.

Boo got his first pair of glasses in October. His eyes are bad enough that we need to get him prescription sunglasses now. They had great options in Ray-Ban frames, as well as the OGI brand he's currently wearing. In the end we decided on the Ray-Bans in the upper right. He looks super cool in them and the lens is big enough to give him great protection from the sun's rays. They'll be ready later this week!
Courtesy of Shoppes of Angus Glen Optometry, here are some things to consider when choosing your next eyewear:

1. Face shape is an important consideration. Frames that contrast the natural shape of your face are best. For example, square faces are flattered by oval or round frames, while rounder faces are more suited to rectangular frames.

2.  Eyes should be well-centered in the frame. A frame too wide may make the eyes seem to close together 

3.  Don't be afraid to have fun! Glasses are such an important accessory, worn on a daily basis for many, so having more than one pair to change up the mood or feel for the day is great. Glasses are an investment and since they are worn on your face, they should also reflect your personality. Don't be afraid of colour, bold looks and trying something outside your comfort zone.

4.  Sunglasses are just as important as your regular glasses. Just like sunscreen protects your skin, sunglasses protect your eyes! Have fun with the beautiful bold colours and over-sized styles. 

5. Glasses are a great accessory to put a finishing touch on any outfit. And especially for us busy moms - you can run out of the house without make up and in sweats and t-shirt and transform the look with a gorgeous pair of glasses.
