Another choice for those with sensitive skin may be cellulose acetate, or propionate. These materials do not contain any exposed metal to touch the skin.
If allergies aren’t a concern, consider when and where you will wear the glasses most. Fit is also an important factor in choosing a frame. Most metal frames come with adjustable nose pads, where the plastic frames have a nonadjustable bridge.
Choosing the proper frame and lenses to fit your lifestyle can seem overwhelming. Feel free to stop by and I will be more than happy to evaluate your needs and spend one-on-one time with you to pick the perfect pair of glasses for you.
