The Best Glasses for Hooded Eyes

Medically reviewed by Wut Win, Dispensing Optician at Feel Good Contacts.

What are Hooded Eyes?

Hooded eyes are distinguished by a heavier, folded skin on the brow bone that partially covers the eyelid when the eyes are open. This eye shape can often create the illusion of smaller eyes, making it essential to choose glasses that open and accentuate the eyes.

Recommended lens for hooded eyes

Although there are no specific recommendations for individuals with hooded eyes concerning contact lenses, it is essential to be mindful of the impact of ptosis (droopy eyelids) on vision. In such cases, we should consider the contact lens diameter carefully. Opting for a large diameter lens may pose challenges during insertion and removal, while a smaller diameter could offer greater ease. To ensure the best fitting contact lenses, always check with your Optician.
