About Our Frames & Lenses
a) Standard metal is generally lightweight. Most metal frames are usually composed of a nickel/steel alloy.
b) Stainless steel is lightweight and corrosion resistant.
c) Titanium frames are hypoallergenic, the lightest of metals, and are superior in resisting corrosion. Titanium frames are the best choice for anyone that has experienced frame peeling in the past or whose frame has turned green in color around the nose pads.
d) Flexible or memory metal frames are made of a titanium alloy which allow for extreme flexing. Frames made of this type of material are best in durability and require minimal adjustments.
Plastic frames are mainly composed of a zyl material which makes these frames a nice lightweight choice. Plastic frames usually have no nose pads which may appeal to those who take on and off their glasses frequently.
3. Rimless and Semi-rimless:
Rimless consists of no frame on the front of the glasses. The glasses are supported by either metal or plastic temples, “frame arms”, which are drilled into the lenses. Semi-rimless implies half the glasses are supported with a frame and the other half (usually the bottom) is without a frame.
4. Spring hinge/Flexible hinge:
Spring hinges can be used in all types of frame materials. These pieces allow frames to flex where the temples “frame arms” meet the frame front. This feature helps relieve stress from everyday wear and tear.

COMPUTER/EXTENDED RANGE OFFICE LENS CATEGORY:
A lens that facilitates reading from a screen and that reduces eyestrain Using a computer makes specific demands on the body and its movements. That is why Computer/Extended Range Reading Lens was developed. Scientific research has shown that working on a screen can cause musculoskeletal disorders as well as heighten stress. While reading from a screen does not lead to eye disease, it can reveal untreated or poorly corrected visual deficiencies. It can also be the source of significant eyestrain. Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS) is a growing problem. Over 14% of patients scheduling an eye exam complain of CVS, the complex of eye and vision problems associated with extended computer use. Yet standard eyeglasses aren’t designed for computer use. They often cause wearers to squint or adjust their heads in an effort to see the monitor, keyboard and objects on the desk. This is especially true of presbyopes. Computer Lenses can provide you with clear vision out to 7 feet. Mid-range vision will vary depending upon prescription.
Occupational Lenses do not offer a clear view of objects beyond SEVEN feet away. They should never be used while driving or for other activities that require clear distance vision.
