Most stores offer an overwhelming number of choices when it comes to frames. However, you can narrow it down by finding the shape that looks best on you. Then, try only the frames with that general shape. Also, consider what will best suit your prescription. Patients with strong prescriptions, such as those suffering from extreme hyperopia, myopia or presbyopia, might want to go for smaller frames, so the lenses won't be as thick and heavy.
The way glasses fit is another important factor. If your nose isn't perfectly even, metal frames may sit more comfortably than plastic, because their nose pads can be adjusted separately.
Finally, you should take into account how active you are, and what kind of weather conditions you have. Those who exercise frequently or live in hot, humid climates should probably stick with plastic frames, over time; sweat can cause metal frames to discolor.
If in doubt about choosing frames, have someone go with you. He or she can give you an objective opinion about what looks good. If you get down to several favorites but still can't decide, ask the optician if you can take them home for a day or so, until you make your final selection.
