Shopping for glasses can be like shopping for new jeans. First of all, coffee. You definitely need to be in the right mindset. My patients will often walk in with a frame style they like from a photo they saw on the internet. Sometimes what works well for them – might be a look only your mother would love.

Here are some fun tips to help narrow your selection and maybe open your mind about a pair that you would not have considered otherwise.

Love + Healthy Eyes,

Dr Tanya Gill, CEO
