Frame selection goes far beyond just fashion and trends. Your prescription plays a role in the kind of frame you choose, especially if it’s high. Big frames are fashionable, but may not be appropriate for high Myopes, whose lenses are thinner in the centre and thicker at the edges. This of course can be solved by getting thinned lenses.

Plastic frames are best for higher prescriptions because they have a thicker rim, meaning they hide some of the thickness of the lenses. Rimless frames require toughened lenses, as there is no rim to protect the lenses from chipping. Multifocal lenses now come in different segment heights, meaning you no longer need to get a big frame to fit them.
