Didn't you post another thread asking same advice?

I strongly suggest asking females for their advice if you must rely on advice.

But, seeing how I suffer from an astigmatism (although I now use contacts every so often) I can relate to this question.

Avoid the obviously big, over-sized frames. You will like a hipster at best (which is bad) or a moron. Although I don't know the measurements of the frames you show, almost all of them look like they fall into this category except 3 and maybe 2 and 4.

Personally, I own and wear glasses similar to 3 and 2, probably smaller though as I have a small head.

If you know you are going to be wearing glasses regularly, go with what you like and use these first pair as a measure for your next purchase. Choose smaller frames or lens next time around or bigger. You should have more than one pair anyway. Oh and buy online if possible. You can get glasses with lens for a fraction of the cost. I do it all the time and now have like 5 pairs of glasses. PM me for more details for websites.

A fellow blind man.

Big thick frames can work on Big Thick faces and as such do not always look hipsterish. They do usually look sort of dated though. I think old guys can pull them off better than young.

Or you could go the half and half style:
