When eyeglasses were in their infancy, small frames were the norm. Now, these retro styles are coming back into vogue. If you have thick lenses, you can make them less noticeable with smaller frames and a wider bridge — small glasses are also an attractive fashion statement.
We have an extensive selection of small eyeglass frames for you to choose from. Gone are the days where this fashion statement is limited to the librarian who wears small eyeglasses on her nose. You can buy any style frame in a smaller size to add a petite accessory to your outfit. Plus, we sell both prescription and accessory frames for a fraction of our competitors’ costs.
Square or circular? Thick-rimmed or rimless? You have a massive number of options when it comes to the shape of your small eyeglasses. Classic styles like cat-eye and browline are ideal for a little touch of old-school chic, while an up-to-date rectangular or oval frame brings a metropolitan vibe to your look.
Shades for your frames
The aesthetic of your small glasses depends heavily on the color or pattern you decide on. Solid, monochrome colors are perfect for a professional and sophisticated look, while a more daring tone like red or blue will have you standing out from the crowd. A pattern like tortoise is another fantastic choice that never goes out of style.
Picking a material
Your small eyeglass frames’ material affects not just how they look, but how they feel on your face, too! Acetate is a skin-friendly, lightweight material, making it an excellent choice for your frames. Plastic frames are a great-value choice that is durable and low-weight, to boot. Metal eyeglasses have an undeniable classic appeal and are super sturdy, making accidental breakage unlikely.
Are small frame glasses right for you?
What’s your prescription strength?
Small frame glasses offer a distinction, unlike any other style. For many years, these were the only type of eyeglasses you could buy. They’re especially popular with very high prescriptions because they don’t accentuate the lenses’ thickness.
The glasses part-timers
Small eyeglasses are also handy for those who don’t wear glasses all the time. If you need an extra pair of reading glasses, small frames fit perfectly in your purse or pocket. For those with petite facial features, small eyeglasses provide the prescription you need and the elegance you want without overwhelming your face.
