Tips for choosing glasses: If you spend long hours outdoors or perspire a lot, plastic frames are a better choice as body acids and salts are hard on metal frames.

Generally speaking, the stronger the prescription, the smaller the frame should be as it keeps the glasses thinner and lighter.

Choose plastic lenses if you want your glasses to be super light-weight.

If you like tinted lenses, go for rose, brown or very light grey hues, as blues, violets and greens tend to distort colour.
