Will oversized glasses suit me?
A pair of oversized glasses can work for many, depending on the style of glasses. You face shape and size will also determine how suitable larger glasses are for you. Oversized glasses will draw attention so prepare to be noticed. If you have a round face, then choosing to wear large prescription glasses can make your face look smaller and add length, making everything appear more in proportion. Find out more about which glasses suit your face shape in our Eye Care Hub.
