Round spectacles have been popular since Benjamin Franklin first sported his small round glasses. In fact, round frame glasses have appeared on the faces of the most celebrated film and literature icons throughout the ages. T.S. Elliot, Raymond Chandler – even famed orator Dale Carnegie sported round prescription glasses. Some may tell you that round eyeglasses frames are not suitable for full or round faces. Actually, circle or round glasses work for nearly every face shape.For example, small round glasses constructed of a heavy material look markedly different from big round glasses that are rimless or are made of thin wire. Of course, big round circular glasses can look quite flattering as they "open up" and brighten your face. Circle frame glasses are especially adorable on your young prescription glasses wearers. A tiny child wearing round prescription glasses incites a chorus of "aawww" at every outing. Circular frames are also beneficial if you're a multifocal lens wearer because the bottom curve of the lens easily accommodates bifocals.

Our glasses experts use PD to perfectly align your lenses with your eyes. You can ask your eye doctor to measure your PD during an exam — or you can measure it at home. Grab a millimeter ruler and place it on the bridge of your nose, just below your eyes. Line up the first line of the ruler with the center of one pupil (the black center of your eye). Have someone read the distance between the pupils, or use a mirror to read it yourself. The final number is your PD.
Adding prescription info is simple. Once you pick your circular frames, select a lens type. We offer single vision, reading, and multifocal lenses. Ask your doctor if you aren’t sure which one you need. Next, choose how to enter your prescription. You can use one saved to your account, or add a new one by taking a photo or manually entering a few numbers. Eyeglasses prescriptions are divided by the left and right eye. Each eye is assigned a series of numbers — enter these in the corresponding boxes on your screen.
