WHAT TO LOOK FOR IN FRAME CONSTRUCTION:
APPEARANCE OF THE FRAME:
Plastic Frames - A quality frame should have the color or pattern uniformly throughout the entire frame. Inferior frames will not look symmetrical or balanced when examined carefully.
Plastic Frames - After a few simple adjustments, a quality frame should feel comfortable when being worn. The bridge should rest comfortably on the nose and not pinch. Temples should extend and gently curve around the ear. If the temples extend well beyond the ear and must be bent into an unusual shape, the temple length is probable excessive and the optician should assist you in selecting a frame with smaller temples. Frame temples should not pinch or press upon your temples after being adjusted. If they do, ask our Eyecare Professional for a larger sized frame.
Weight - Modern metal and plastic quality frames are light in weight. Space age “exotic” materials offer even greater comfort with further reductions in weight while maintaining durability and strength.
