Acetate glasses frames

Acetate is a popular choice for glasses frames for its strong, lightweight and flexible properties. Acetate is made from cellulose and is therefore a more eco friendly alternative to plastic. This material can be easily molded into any shape, so it's great for creating unique eyeglass frames.

Frequently asked questions

You bet! Firstly, the material you choose will affect the overall weight and comfort of your glasses. Lighter glasses tend to be more comfortable to wear for long hours. Secondly, the material will determine how durable your glasses are. Titanium or metal frames are generally stronger than plastic or acetate frames, making them a good choice for everyday wear. Finally, the material can also impact how well your glasses look and how long they last. Acetate and plastic frames often have a shiny finish that can scratch over time, while titanium is corrosion-resistant and therefore tends to look better longer.

Titanium is one of the lightest eyeglass frame materials. It also has other attractive qualities, like being hypoallergenic (a great choice for people with more sensitive skin) and strong. A lightweight pair of glasses is more convenient to carry with you when you’re on the go, and is also likely to stay on your head as you move around. This is especially important if you lead a very active lifestyle. A lightweight pair of glasses is much more comfortable in general to wear than a heavy pair.

Acetate frames are made from cellulose, making them a more eco-friendly option to plastic eyeglass frames. They also tend to be more hypoallergenic. The downside is that they tend to be more expensive.
