If you’re not sure where to start when buying glasses frames, a good place to start is with the material. At SmartBuyGlasses, we offer a range of different frames and materials including acetate, titanium, wood and more.
Acetate is a nylon-based plastic with higher transparency and gloss than other plastics, making it a fantastic material for use in glasses design. Most designer glasses frames will be crafted from acetate plastic, as this not only looks great but is durable and of great quality.
Growing in popularity, wood is an optimal material choice for glasses frames. Adding exclusivity to the glasses, wood frames are usually handmade and one-of-a-kind pieces due to the intricate detailing on the frame. They’re also the most sustainable material, as the production of wooden frames doesn’t create industrial waste.
The most popular frame material amongst eyewear experts, titanium is one of the strongest and highest quality materials available for glasses frames. Titanium is highly resistant yet lightweight, so eyeglasses crafted from this material are comfortable when worn for extended periods.
If you're looking for a new pair of reading glasses, low-cost glasses or prescription glasses that will help you look younger, then choosing the right frames is key. For a youthful look, consider going for oversized eyeglasses or round frames. You could even opt for designer glasses or play around with colours that bring out your personality.
