When shopping for eyewear, there are two key categories that make frames stand out against the competition: frame technology and lens technology.
Frames should be lightweight and comfortable. Some durability wouldn’t go amiss either, especially if you live an active lifestyle. To get the best wearability and use out of your frame, consider the following frame technologies:
- Titanium – Metal that is very light and very strong.
- Acetate – A type of plastic that is hypoallergenic and more durable than traditional plastic.
- Grilamid – Polymer that is both lightweight and strong.
- Stainless Steel – Metal that doesn’t rust, resists corrosion, and is strong and light.
- O Matter™ – Oakley’s proprietary frame material, which is lightweight and durable.
The key to clear vision. Lens technology makes the difference between a standard optical experience and an exceptional one. At SportRx, you can find the best lens technologies from top brands, and customize the lenses to your liking:
- Single Vision, Bifocal, or Progressive
- Polycarbonate, Trivex, or High Index
- Various lens coatings
Let’s get into the frames!
