Men's Glasses Go Beyond Getting to 20/20

            mens glasses in Iowa City, IA

When you are looking to get men’s eyeglasses in Iowa City, the first step is to have an up to date comprehensive eye exam to make sure that the prescription of your new glasses matched the needs of your eyes. This means having a current eye exam, which we offer at McDonald Optical. But what your eyes need goes beyond getting your corrected vision to 20/20. Depending on your lifestyle, you may need lenses that help you with glare while you are driving, or help ward off headaches caused my too much time at the computer, or you may even need special tweaks to your prescription that make it easier to stay active in the outdoors. Whatever your specific needs are, our optician at McDonald Optical can help make sure when you choose your men's eyeglasses in Iowa City, you'll get the glasses that are best for your eyes and your style.

Large Selection of Popular Prescription Glasses

Once we have nailed down your prescription needs, it is time to talk about what you want. In order to properly blend these two aspects of your new glasses, we carry a large selection of popular designer frames to help you achieve the look and style you want. Some of these include

  • Alain Mikli
  • Coach
  • Modo

  • Oliver Peoples
  • Ray-Ban

Each of these designers are dedicated to quality, and our staff is available and ready to help you find a pair or two of frames among them that are right for you, including finding the right shape of glasses to fit your face.

Matching Your Glasses to Your Face

Picking out the right eyeglasses goes beyond finding a brand that resonates with you. It is also important to consider the shape of your face in order to choose a complementary style. The common face shapes and the frame features that go best with them include

  • Oval - Oval face shapes are best complimented by dominant, bold styles and colors in the frame with a smaller lens shape.
  • Round- Round faces need frames that are wider rather than long and pads that keep the glasses from sliding onto the cheeks.
  • Square - A style that blends well into the face is best for square faces since the features themselves are normally more prominent. 
  • Heart - Wide frame with bold styles go best with heart-shaped faces since this shape combines elements of both round and oval shapes.
