Because round isn't a particularly flattering shape for most people.

The optometrist doesn't do the final fitting and selling of frames, anyway. The sales staff do. And they usually only give feedback on how the frames look on the customer's face if asked, The sales staff is there to sell, so most let the customer buy whatever they choose, without any comments.

In my experience, they've offered comment and opinions, but the choice is ultimately the patient's.

I had to start wearing glasses when I was 9 and always hated them, especially back in the 1960's. I've been wearing contacts for 40 years but I do have a pair of progressives for when I don't want to wear my contacts. They are practically invisible which is the way I like my glasses. I don't wish to make a statement with my glasses, I want them to be unnoticeable.


My oldest son wears the hipster glasses and he also wore the man bun for awhile. He's always been into the current styles even if think they look ridiculous like the man bun and the bow ties he was wearing for awhile.

When this latest frame came out we said, "Hey look, Buddy Holly glasses are back in style!" Amazon even has them listed that way.

Various style trends emerge again after many decades.

The one good thing about them is it's easy to spot a left wing snowflake and to stay away from them if you decide
Conservative girls wear them too. They are now a mainstream fashion trend and women will follow. Well, guys too.

Nope. Nothing, and I mean NOTHING will be as stupid as the "man-bun" fad. NOTHING.

Sorry. I have to whole heartedly disagree. I'd take a thousand man buns over one guy with saggy jeans halfway to his knees, showing off his boxers.

You wouldn't know it by the constant stream of positive commentary I get on mine!

You notice I said "MOST PEOPLE". Perhaps you don't fall in that category. We can't tell from a cropped picture of eyes.
