Eyeglasses help you see better, they can also be a fashion statement. When choosing a new pair of frames, you need to take into account your sense of fashion as well as your lifestyle. Here are some tips.
For the Computer Savvy
Plastic or metal frames are best for people who spend a lot of time working on the computer because they’re lightweight and hypoallergenic, making them ideal for long term usage. Plastic frames made of cellulose acetate, cellulose propionate and nylon are the most popular options, while titanium, beryllium, stainless steel, flexon and aluminum are the most popular choices for metal frames. These options are all both durable and lightweight and will suit you well as you handle everyday work or school-related tasks.
Digital eye strain is a common problem among people who spend significant time on the computer, but with the help of anti-reflective or photochromatic lenses in eyeglasses, you can minimize or even prevent this problem.
For the Heavy Readers
If you spend a lot of your time reading, you’ll benefit from corrosion-resistant frame materials that are also hypoallergenic, such as metal frames made from titanium, stainless steel or flexon. These materials won’t irritate your skin or distract you from what you’re reading. If your eyeglasses are causing blisters on your nose, you might be allergic to the nickel alloy in metal frames. Before purchasing your new eyewear, consult with an optometrist for guidance.
For the Tough Workers
Tough jobs need tough frames. Frames made of plastic nylon or metal flexon are perfect for those with physically demanding jobs like construction or athletics. These materials are highly durable and impact-resistant.
