Why Men's and Women's Eyewear Are Different

Women and men need different eyewear to suit their different needs, but they also want that eyewear to be appealing and stylish in order to make them feel good about how they look when they wear it. Learn the difference between women’s and men’s eyewear, why those differences exist, and how choosing the right pair of eyeglasses can help you achieve the best vision possible.

Men's Eyewear VS Women's Eyewear

It’s not uncommon for women to wear men’s eyeglasses, but do you know why there are different types of eye wear? The differences between men’s and women’s glasses are a result of different gender-specific facial features. Generally speaking, men have longer faces that require larger frames than women with shorter faces.

Men’s Eyewear Men’s eyeglasses tend to be more angular in shape, whereas women’s eyeglasses tend to be more rounded. This is because men tend to have longer faces than women do. Men also tend to have wider noses and larger foreheads than women, which means their glasses will often need wider arms and temples as well as stronger nose pads.

Frame Material

Both men’s and women’s eyeglasses come in a variety of frame materials. Generally, men’s frames are made from metal or plastic, while women’s frames are made from acetate, metal, or even titanium. Whether you prefer something lightweight like titanium or more durable like metal is up to you, but we recommend choosing a material that goes with your lifestyle—for example, if you tend to drop things often, opt for a sturdier material.

Color & Size

As far as style and function go, there are major differences between men’s and women’s eyeglasses. For example, men’s frames come in a range of solid colors like black, tortoise shell, brown, and grey; women’s glasses are available in bright colors like red and pink. In addition to color differences, most women prefer rounder frame shapes while most men favor angular styles.

The vast majority of men wear small to medium size glasses while most women wear large to extra-large size frames. Men also tend to have higher prescriptions (powers) than women—they usually need 10 or 20 more diopters than their female counterparts.

The shape of you

When it comes to men’s and women’s eyeglasses, fit is everything. Men’s frames tend to be smaller overall in order to fit a wider range of face shapes, while women’s eyeglasses are often larger. Some companies even offer different lens widths for men than they do for women; that way, men can get a prescription lens that fits better with their eyes or head shape.

When ordering glasses online or over-the-phone, make sure you take these measurements into account. Always consult your optometrist if you have any questions about your lenses; he or she will also help you determine what fits best with your eyesight correction needs and lifestyle.


Men’s and women’s eyeglasses are each designed with a specific purpose in mind. While most people think men’s glasses look better than women’s, If you choose quality frames and high-quality lenses, instead of thinking about which pair of glasses is better for men or for women, you can focus on finding glasses that fit your face shape, which will lead to a more comfortable fit. Men or women: it doesn't matter – what matters is how well they're made!

There aren't hard and fast rules for men's and women's eyewear but some stylings tend toward "female or male."

A Mama's Boy's Love for His Mother

Vicci™ Eyewear was inspired by a son’s love for his mother and his passion for fashion.

David Abramovici, the Founder of Vicci™ Eyewear, came from a family of artisans dedicated to craftsmanship since the 1920s.

David recalls that when his mother was around 65 years old, she would always ask him to stop by the local pharmacy to pick up some generic readers.

He would spend at least 20 minutes every time he went there, just standing in front of a rack full of tacky, ugly readers. It was difficult for him to choose a "nice" design that he thought would look good on his mother.

His mother enjoyed attending events and spending money on her dresses and accessories. Unfortunately, the readers are often underwhelming, and she was embarrassed to ever be seen wearing them. Like most women, she'd usually hide it in her lovely purse and would always look around before using them to read the menu or bill.

David wondered why there weren’t more choices for high-quality and fashionable custom readers for older women like his mother. Something she’d actually love to wear and be proud to be seen wearing.

And that’s when it hit him!
