Eyewear Frame Materials

Frames are usually constructed from special plastics, stainless steel, titanium and other high-tech materials. Each material varies in terms of weight, flexibility, durability and cost. In addition, rimless frames that minimize the cosmetic presence of eye glasses are also widely available.

Eyewear Frame Hinges

In addition to the traditional hinges, many eyeglass frames have spring hinges. This feature is particularly important for children and active adults. Spring hinges are more likely to flex with impact and then return to the original shape. Due to the flexibility of some materials, certain frames are designed without hinges, eliminating the possibility of losing screws and enhancing the durability of the frame.

Eyewear Frame Nose Pieces

While plastic frames usually rest directly on the nose, virtually all metal frames rest on the nose using “floating” nose pads. With nose pads, a smaller area of the frame is in contact with your nose, which may increase comfort. In addition, nose pads are easily adjustable to achieve a perfect fit.
