The lighter glasses are, the more comfortable they are to wear: Optimal comfort is achieved by making the frame and lenses as lightweight as possible. Modern manufacturing methods and extremely lightweight materials for lenses and frames have made it possible to produce glasses that offer outstanding quality at an exceptionally low weight. BETTER VISION investigates five tips for creating ultra-thin, exceptionally lightweight eyeglass lenses and frames – and discovers why losing a bit of weight can be beneficial for everyone.
The less glasses weigh, the more comfortable they are to wear. It may sound surprising, but our nose is so sensitive that we notice every last ounce resting on top of it! The ideal solution would be a pair of glasses that we forget we're wearing – glasses that do their job without us even noticing them. That would eliminate the problem of indentations on the wearer's nose and discomfort caused by earpieces, simultaneously making the glasses more comfortable to wear and improving their fit. And this isn't just an issue that affects children or athletes. Weight-optimized lenses and ultra-light frames can now make the headaches caused by heavy glasses a thing of the past for everyone. Reducing the weight of glasses is clearly a key factor in achieving maximum comfort – but sometimes it takes a while for people to notice that they are having a problem with their new glasses because the lenses and frame are just a bit too heavy. By following our tips below, this situation can be avoided right from the start.
Contact lenses are a very good alternative to glasses – yet there are still a few vision solutions that are only possible with good ol' glasses.
