How to Choose Well Made EyeGlasses
Quality eyeglasses should not only look good but should be constructed properly and with quality materials. Hinges should be solidly secured to ensure smooth opening and closing. A hinge that comes loose from the front of the frame usually cannot be repaired. The frame should be soldered together properly at the bridge and temples. The frame material should be corrosion and heat resistant.
Be sure to purchase your eyewear from a reputable optical store with a satisfaction guaranteed policy. It also helps to buy your glasses from a store that will provide free adjustments and cleanings for the life of the frame.
Look for the following features during your new frame selection:
- Spring Hinges – These allow for greater comfort and lessen the frequency of needed adjustments. They will help the hinges survive everyday wear and tear and the occasional bump to the head.
- Silicone Nose Pads – They are much softer than other nose pads and are slip resistant so they help prevent eyewear from sliding down your nose.
- Memory metal – These frames are made of a flexible titanium alloy for the greatest durability possible in an eyewear frame.
- Hypoallergenic frames – If necessary due to skin reactions look for stainless steel, titanium or plastic frames.
