OLDER, WISER - BUT WITH WEAKER SIGHT
If you're starting to wonder who shrank the letters in your reading material, you've probably got presbyopia. This is simply a term for age-related vision and means your ability to focus at short distances is weakened over the years. But all you need to beat presbyopia is a good pair of Have A Look reading glasses to get everything back into focus.
A WIDE AND VARIED SELECTION
Have A Look have exclusively designed, sensibly priced reading glasses to suit all tastes and every shape of face.
Your lens strength depends on your age, but what your glasses look like depends on who you are. Follow your heart and your mood when you're shopping eyewear, so have a little fun!
We have a beautiful selection of reading glasses by Have A Look in store, with distinctive design, colourful and cool shapes. To make your life easier we have put together a go-to guide on which glasses are right for you, along with a simple guide on what strength you need.
Available in strengths ranging from +1 to +3, these glasses are made to suit both men and women.
When it comes to common, age-related long sight, broadly-speaking, the table below will provide a good guideline. Please do remember it is only a guide, but we suggest the following 40 years: +1, 45 years: +1,5, 50 years: +2, 55 years: +2,5, 60 years: +3.
If you are in any doubt regarding what strength is right for you, please visit your optician.
HOW TO CHOOSE THE FRAMES THAT ARE RIGHT FOR YOU
A round face is usually characterised by rounded lines and broad, round cheeks - the face is often relatively short in relation to its width. Glasses that are wider than they are high, with sharp edges, suit round faces well. Rectangular glasses make the face seem narrower, more pronounced and longer, thereby giving a more harmonious expression.
Have A Look Frames that will suit a round face are: Classic or Type A.
An oval face has harmonious, soft contours. It is broadest at the cheek bones and has a soft, rounded chin. In other words, a face with balanced proportions. If your face is oval, you have the ideal face for glasses - and, in principle, all frames will suit you! You can play with shapes and colours as much as you like. It is only a question of what you like and what look you are searching for. In order to preserve the natural balance in your face, you will benefit from glasses that are just as broad, or broader, than the broadest part of your face.
Have a Look frames that will suit an oval face are: Type A, Type B or Circle.
A square face is characterised by a strong and marked jaw line and a wide forehead. The width and height of the face are the same, and it has pronounced and angular contours. Any type of round, oval or tear-shaped frame suits those who have square faces, because a frame with a rounded shape softens up the more angular face, giving a harmonious expression.
Have A Look frames that will suit a square face are: Type B, Circle or Circle Twist.
HEART SHAPED FACE
A heart shaped face is characterised by being wider at the top and narrower further down - with a wide forehead, high cheekbones and a pointed chin. If you have a heart shaped face, you are fortunate, because you have a really good face for eyeglasses. You can wear oval, round and angular glasses. So you can just relax and try out a wide range of frames, all according to your mood and personal style.
Have A Look frames that will suit a heart-shaped face are: Type A, Type B, Circle Twist or Circle.
