Although contact lenses and vision correction surgery have made significant advancements, eyeglasses are still a popular option. With a wide selection of frame materials, frame styles, and colors, glasses are a great way to express your style while improving your vision.
With the introduction of new plastics and various other kinds of materials, there are endless options to choose from when deciding on your eyeglass frame material. Commonly, eyeglass frames are made from plastic or metal, but other materials can be used depending on the type of frame you desire.
