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

    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?
  • InissantAngelInissantAngel Posts: 173Registered Users
    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!

    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.

    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?

    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:

    I like the ones w~h posted, but I'm not sure they'd flatter me; I might need that squared off side.
    I'm pretty sure I'm in the slow to evolve camp, cp. But thanks. My great grand-anything would likely be a dog. Or a human/dog mix. But not through human and dog sex.

    Okay!

    Still frame shopping.

    Ready for a tangent?

    I've recently been reading "Wild Cards I" (a shared world anthology edited by George RR Martin). Anywhoodle, in it, in 1946 an alien virus was unleashed over New York, and it affected people in different ways (some die, some are changed in good ways, some in bad). At least one was turned into a dog (with dog senses, but human thinking ability).

    No point to this tangent really, your comment just reminded me of the story and I thought I'd share that with you.

    /end tangent

    On another note, I like cat eye shaped glasses. I have a pair of blinged out 1950's style sunglasses like that. I should wear them more.

    Nevermind … I was going to post the link to the rest of the Microshape offerings because they have lots of cat eye frame variations, including squared off ones. Their frames are made for smaller faces, which can also work well with close set eyes.

    But the more I poked around in there, it came back to me that the company seems to be defunct. Then I had the vague memory of undergoing the same search a couple years back when I got my current pair of eyeglasses and giving up because their website seemed out of date and no one seemed to carry their line.

    The only ones that seem to be for sale are a couple "vintage" Microshapes frames on Etsy.

    Try searching for ogi (brand) frames. They have smaller sizes for smaller heads!

    I never heard of Microshapes before! I wish they were still manufacturing them.

    Also Google "Betsey Johnson Itsy Bitsy" and click shopping to see all of her smaller frames in their various shapes and colors. She has a couple of cat eye shapes.

    The search for great glasses is always so much more fun than the wearing of glasses I once hoped would be great (but never are).
  • ninja dogninja dog Posts: 23,780Registered Users Curl Neophyte
    Okay!

    I found a pair. They're this style, but with pale pinkish-lilac details instead of brown. The clear bridge and interior are good for my close-set eyes, and the pattern moves viewers' attention to the outside of the frames. They're very comfy, too.
