Squovular? (Square + Oval + Circle) That or almond .... ish

I've heard them described as cat's eye shaped.

BrettyU 11-07-2011 10:49 AM

Yep I would agree with cat eye, looks like a rounder cat eye

found a similar pair of ray-bans

I'd say cat's eye too, but without the pointy outer ends. But then most cat's eye seem to go upward at the outer point too.

Maybe almond?

A modern cat's eye?

Do you all think they'd be good for someone with close-set eyes?

InissantAngel 11-07-2011 03:22 PM

I don't think it has as much to do with having close set or wide spaced eyes, as it does with overall face shape.

Are they for you? Post a picture of yourself and the glasses you're looking at, we'll tell you if they look good or not!

They're kinda egg shaped to me...like a sideways egg maybe...

The lady in the pic has wider spaced eyes. Unless they can be ordered in a smaller width and still "fit" the size of the face?

My eyes are a little close set, and it can be tricky. The very most flattering pair of glasses I ever had were ones that matched my personality AND my iris lined up pretty much dead center in the lenses. The sales clerk at the shi-shi optics shop I got them at told me that's the trick to getting frames that really work for you.

And I did get a lot of compliments on those frames.

I have yet to find another pair that fits me as well. In trying to economize, I shop Target Optical now and while they definitely have cute frames, their selection isn't very broad.

This is good advice, w~h. Thank you.

I'm dreadfully unphotogenic.

Lies! I've seen pics that say otherwise, missy!

You!

Your vision was dimmed by your ill-fated experiment with the blonding.

WileE-Dead 11-07-2011 05:03 PM

nd...I think you should go for the thin, square shaped glasses...I have reading glasses like those :oops:...love them

wild~hair 11-07-2011 06:12 PM

It occurred to me the super fabulous frames I had were sort of cat eye. The company doesn't make that exact frame anymore, but this one from them is very similar, just a little thinner overall. They even have the retro detail in the corner on each side.

I'm not answering your question here (other respondents seem right on target) but just wanted to say that I've read that humans are evolving towards more close-set eyes and eventually we will all be cyclops! (cyclopes). So maybe, since you have close set eyes, ND, you are rather more evolved than those of us with wider set eyes.

Or maybe not. :laughing6:

What?!?! Where did you hear this? That's so weird and freaky! Don't we need both eyes for 3D vision or something?

nynaeve77 11-07-2011 07:52 PM

Futurama got it right?

Ha ha! I don't remember where I read that, but I really did. Somebody with more energy than I have will research this. Eilonwy - where are you when we need you? :mrgreen:

curlypearl 11-07-2011 08:20 PM

NyNaeve, I can't seem to find the "like" button for your post, but it's hilarious and I like it a lot! Futurama - never saw her before. Is this the great great great grandchild of NinjaDog?

WileE-Dead 11-08-2011 05:05 AM

CP...do you need glasses? :eye:
The ones nd posted reminded me of some mom had from the 50s that I wore for Halloween one year when I worked at the bank and dressed up in that era :cool:
