How can we miss out on panto sunglasses when we are on the topic of iconic sunglasses shapes? Panto was a popular fame shape devised in the early 50s. Characterised by a hinge that is high and the base is full. This gives it a wider view.

These days, its design is seen in sunglasses that are vintage-yet-modern and is prized for its adaptability and is liked by fashionistas and traditional individuals alike.

A brief history of the Panto Sunglasses

Panto is short for Pantoscopic and were types of glasses crafted by the National Health Service (NHS) during the 1950’s-1970’s. The Panto shape was made in 1946. After the war, the Labor government in the UK saw the importance of fighting and curing disease and providing free healthcare facilities. As a result, the Panto was born.

This ideology was adapted from the liberal economist W. H. Beveridge.

Further, Panto was bifocal eyeglass lens that was devised for reading and distance. These frames were highly sought after because getting these meant that you got to test your eyes and get them if needed.  

Panto Sunglasses for Oval Faces

Panto Sunglasses would look particularly great on individuals with an oval face. In fact, people with an oval face shape can pull off an eyewear style. Since the cheeks are rounded, and the jawline is of the same width as the forehead, there is equal symmetry.
