Top 7 Frames for Men’s Eyeglasses in 2022
Oakley Tie Bar
The Oakley Tie Bar is a classic frame that’s been a top seller since it was first released. It’s a versatile frame that can be dressed up or down, and is made of lightweight, durable titanium. The temples are also made of titanium, with a thicker section at the tips for added weight. The three-point fit system ensures the glasses stay securely on your face, and the latch system lets you clip the temples onto your shirt to prevent them from falling off. The inline groove design means the frame sits inside the lens, rather than the other way around, which is especially useful for stronger prescriptions where the lens thickness is more noticeable. The Tie Bar is available in two eye sizes (53 and 55) and two sfw sizes (133 and 137 millimeters).
Costa Ocean Ridge
The Costa Ocean Ridge is a newer edition with a bold, rectangular design. It’s made of eco-friendly bio resin nylon, which is resistant to high temperatures and wear and tear. The frame also features sweat management channels to help keep your glasses from sliding down your nose, and the polarized lenses block 100% of harmful UV rays. The Ocean Ridge is available in three eye sizes (52, 54, and 56) and three sfw sizes (136, 140, and 144 millimeters).
Ray-Ban Blaze Clubmaster
The Ray-Ban Blaze Clubmaster is a modern twist on a classic style. It has a semi-rimless design with a metal top bar and plastic lower frame, and is available in a range of colors. The lenses are made of lightweight, scratch-resistant glass, and the frames have a three-point fit system for added comfort and stability. The Blaze Clubmaster is available in two eye sizes (51 and 53) and two sfw sizes (138 and 141 millimeters).
Maui Jim Island Time
The Maui Jim Island Time is a sporty, wraparound frame with a flexible, rubberized material that’s comfortable to wear and resistant to slipping. The lenses are polarized and block 100% of harmful UV rays, and the frames have a non-slip, adjustable nose pad for a secure fit. The Island Time is available in three eye sizes (54, 56, and 58) and three sfw sizes (137, 141, and 145 millimeters).
Oakley Holbrook XL
The Oakley Holbrook XL is a larger version of the classic Holbrook frame, with a retro style that’s suitable for both casual and formal wear. The frame is made of lightweight, durable O Matter plastic, and the lenses are polarized and block 100% of harmful UV rays. The Holbrook XL has a three-point fit system and adjustable nose pads for a comfortable, secure fit. It’s available in two eye sizes (56 and 58) and two sfw sizes (143 and 145 millimeters).
The Persol PO3174S is a timeless, classic frame with a square shape.
How do I choose the right eyeglasses for my face shape?
The best eyeglasses for you will depend on your face shape and personal style. To determine your face shape, look at yourself in the mirror and pull your hair back so you can see your natural facial contours. Generally, people with oval-shaped faces can wear any style of eyeglass, while people with round faces should choose frames that are wider than they are tall to add angles to the face. Square faces look good in round or oval frames, and people with heart-shaped faces should choose frames that are wider at the bottom to balance their features.
How do I care for my eyeglasses?
To keep your eyeglasses clean and in good condition, follow these tips: Use a soft, lint-free cloth to clean your lenses. Avoid using household cleaners or tissues to clean your eyeglasses, as these can scratch the lenses. When you're not wearing your eyeglasses, store them in a protective case to keep them from getting scratched or damaged. If you wear prescription eyeglasses, consider getting a coat of anti-reflective or scratch-resistant coating to protect the lenses.
Can I wear contact lenses instead of eyeglasses?
Contact lenses are an alternative to eyeglasses for people who don't like the way they look in glasses or who want a more natural field of vision. However, contact lenses are not suitable for everyone, and you'll need to visit an eye doctor to determine if they're right for you. Some people may have eye conditions that make it difficult to wear contacts, or they may have allergies or sensitivities that make it difficult to use them. If you do decide to wear contact lenses, make sure to follow the instructions for proper care and use to avoid eye infections or other complications.
