Squovular? (Square + Oval + Circle) That or almond .... ish
I've heard them described as cat's eye shaped.

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

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?

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...

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.

nd...I think you should go for the thin, square shaped glasses...I have reading glasses like those ...love them
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.
2/c and some 3A.
Protein sensitive but can use occasionally
Highly porous. Color over grey.
Best 1st day method: Super Soaker
Stylers: Mix Curls in a Bottle into everything for shine. Terrible pj
Sometimes try roller sets - classic glamor but I prefer my curls.
Every day is a gift

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?

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?

CP...do you need glasses?
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
