What’s My Face Shape?

This handy little cheat sheet will help you find frames that make you look amazing.

  • Heart Face Shape


    Your face is widest at the forehead which gradually narrows to your jawline. Your glasses shouldn’t imitate the shape of your face. Stick to smaller rectangular, square and aviator glasses.

    Shop these styles:

    Aviator,Rectangle,Square Watch Video
  • Round Face Shape


    The width of your forehead, cheeks and jaw are nearly the same. You have soft features with a less angular, more rounded shape. Rectangular glasses will slim and lengthen the look of your face.

    Shop these styles:

    Rectangle Watch Video
  • Oval Face Shape


    Your face is longer than the width of your cheek bones. Your features are balanced with a forehead that’s slightly wider than your chin, and a rounded jawline. But all you really need to know is you’ll look good in nearly any frame you choose. Lucky you!

    Shop these styles:

    Aviator,Cat-Eye,Rectangle,Round Watch Video
  • Square Face Shape


    Like the rounded shape, your face is proportional in length and width. But what sets you apart are your angles, like a broad forehead and squared jawline. Soften your angles with round, oval and slightly curved glasses.

My Prescription

You’ll need a current RX to buy prescription eyewear or contacts on Eyeconic.

The best way is to check with your doctor's office before placing your order. Check out our example of a valid prescription. Your current prescription should include:

  • Patient Name
  • Valid Expiration Date
  • Prescribing Doctor
  • Prescription Information

If we receive an image of the prescription, we’re able to verify it based on the submission of a valid prescription form.

Note: An eye exam is recommended every year. As a rule, you shouldn’t go longer than two years between eye exams. You may need to have your eyes examined more often if you have a family history of eye diseases, diabetes, if you have generally poor health, or you’re taking medications that may have potential side effects on the eyes

Don’t fret – we partner with a network of 34,000 doctors. Use our Find A Doctor tool to find a doctor near you to receive a comprehensive eye exam and to update your prescription.

You’ll provide your prescription during the checkout process. You’ll have the option to upload an image of your current prescription. Simply snap a photo of or scan your current prescription and save it to your computer or mobile device. Check out our example of a valid prescription. Your current prescription should include:

  • Patient Name
  • Valid Expiration Date
  • Prescribing Doctor
  • Prescription Information

Don’t have a copy of your prescription? No worries, just give us your prescribing doctor’s contact info (also during the checkout process), and we’ll take care of it!
