Choosing the Perfect Eyeglasses; Eyeglass Frames or Rimless Eyeglasses

When you put on a new pair of eyeglasses, it can change your whole appearance. You can go from drab and boring to sleek and sexy by choosing the right pair. You want to pick something that matches your personality and lifestyle. Most people can benefit from more than one pair of eyeglasses especially if they have an active life. Experts agree if you are a conservative person, stay with shapes such as rectangles or ovals in either thin plastic or metals. Rimless eyeglasses and three-piece mountings can also be a good choice. For you more creative types, modern shapes work best in thicker or larger plastics. Good color choices for your eyeglass frames include blue, green and purple. If you shop on line often, you know you will get great prices on eyeglasses.

Choosing the right eyeglass frames will make or break the image you are after. There is a huge selection of different materials to choose from. If you like color, then zly or zylonite is your best option. It is super cost effective, is colorful and is light weight. If you have allergies, then we suggest proprionate which is nylon-based and again very light. Other blended nylon is the prime material for sports and performance eyeglasses. Nylon is easily molded so it is often used in the wrap around styles. Now if you like the metal look, you have a number of options. Titanium is becoming very popular because of its strength, durability and resistance to corrosion. Flexon is often referred to as “memory metal” because it can go back to its original shape if bent or damaged. If you want a pair that is super light and very trendy, rimless eyeglasses is your choice.

Now that you have the right eyeglass frames, it’s time to choose the proper lenses. We highly recommend polycarbonate lenses as they are thinner and lighter than plastic. They also offer UV protection from the sun’s harmful rays. Other great features of these lenses are they are both scratch and impact resistant. Polycarbonate lenses are recommended in sports, children’s and safety eyeglasses. All of these are available on line at a number of retailers that offer eyeglasses. They also offer a full range of designer styles including my favorite rimless eyeglasses at fantastic prices.
