Before you go trying on every glasses and frames in the Mountain Eye Care lineup, you should think about the daily activities that make up your weekly routine. Do you lead an active lifestyle, running from place to place, without stopping for a break? Or are you more of a laid back, stationary, type of person?

Do you look at a screen for prolonged periods of time, or are you outside working under the sky most days? All of these questions should be ready in your mind while perusing our extensive collection, as the answers will help dictate the type of eyewear you settle on.

Face Shape

Depending on the shape of your head, different frames will accentuate the lines of your face in different ways. Like clothing, items may look pleasing on the hanger, but when you go to try them on they are ill-fitting, accentuating all the wrong places. The same can be said for glasses; you may like the look of one style, but once you place them on your face, they fit awkwardly.

Take a look in the mirror and figure out the shape of your face so you can better understand what you need in a pair of glasses. Oval, heart-shaped, round, square, or triangle- your face shape matters when choosing the right eyewear.


Like anything that is worn on your body, it should make you feel comfortable and happy. Your personality and unique style should shine through your glasses and frames to show the world your personal expression.
