Frame Styles

When choosing great eyewear, face shape isn’t the only factor that determines which frames will look amazing on you — your skin tone, eye color and hair color also play important roles. The best eyewear will complement the coloration of your face, eyes and hair. Most people need more than one pair of glasses, such as one for everyday wear, computer glasses and another for outdoor activities. Having different style frames for different activities and moods makes wearing glasses more fun.


With the wide variety of lens options available, you can customize your sunglasses to meet your visual, protection, performance and comfort needs. The sun’s harmful UV rays can lead to serious, and in some cases, long-term health issues, such as cataracts and retinal damage.  Sunglasses protect your eyes from harmful ultraviolet (UV) radiation, which is present even on cloudy days. Quality sunwear provides 100% UV protection and can significantly reduce the risk of vision problems.   A polarized lens offers advantages over non-polarized lenses.  Increased visual comfort, since your eyes aren’t constantly challenged by glare, it is easier to view objects in bright conditions. Enhances clarity of vision and contrast for ground level objects and for seeing into water.

Alpine Vision Clinic in Arlington, Washington has the experience to guide you toward eyewear selections that are comfortable and that work to complement your face. For help, schedule an appointment with Dr. Philip T. Williams and we’ll be in touch with you shortly.
