Most people who choose eyeglass frames are concerned with price and style. But there are other factors to consider, such as how lightweight, strong, flexible and corrosion-resistant the frames are.

Today's eyeglass frames are made from many types of plastic and metal. Some frames combine materials—for example, a frame with plastic surrounding the lenses and temple pieces made from titanium. Different materials will be right for different people and situations, according to your ophthalmologist.

Knowing you have a choice, our pledge to you is quality eyewear.
