Glasses to fit the shape of your face

Our staff is specially trained to help each client select the frames that are most flattering to his or her face shape. The glasses provided by Swift Optical are high quality designs that are intended to fit well and that are most flattering. The shape of the face can help determine which of our frames best enhance one's appearance. For instance, clients with round faces tend to look best in frames that are either rectangular or square. They are advised to avoid rimless frames, small or round frames, as these styles accentuate the round shape of the face. Whatever shape your face is, we have the right glasses.
