THE OPTICAL SHOPPE carries a wide range of frames in all price categories. Frames are available in both plastic and metal materials.
ZYL or Cellulose Acetate
A plastic cut from sheets. This material allows for the more vibrant colors.
This plastic is injected molded. It is a very lightweight material.
This is the most commonly used metal for eyeglasses. It has a nickel content which might cause some allergic reactions to a small percentage of people.
This material is very thin and yet is very strong. Since there is no nickel content in stainless it is hypoallergenic.
This new space-age material has now come to eyeglass frames. Titanium is probably the lightest weight frame material and is also the strongest. Some frames are 100% titanium, while others are a mixture, which allows for more flexibility. Titanium frames are also hypoallergenic.
