Glasses have become quite a valuable accessory in the fashion world, especially among people of good taste and lovers of quality designers. There are no better accessories to update your style today than new and trendy glasses. Some people wear glasses with prescription lenses; some wear sunglasses to protect their eyes from the sun, others wear them for fashion.
The lenses come in a variety of frames and shapes to give fashionistas the opportunity to show off their striking styles. Some manufacturers try to keep a clear distinction between the design of male and female glasses. But there have been many unisex glasses on the market for decades.
One of the most popular eyewear styles today is Wayfarer eyewear. Wayfarer spectacle frames combine professional and casual, classic and modern styles, making them a favorite of customers and fashionistas.
Types of unisex spectacle frames
While there are some glasses for general use, others are for a specific purpose, such as driving, computers, crafts, sports, etc. Special unisex glasses like this one are for better performance and creative looks. Glasses for special use are generally custom made and adapted to individual needs.
Whether for a general or specific purpose, the importance of frames cannot be overemphasized. The frame doesn’t just help keep the lenses in place; it also helps to bring out the beauty of the design to give it a premium look. These spectacle frames are made of materials such as plastic, metal, and many other materials, depending on the preferred features of the frame.
Unisex spectacle frames come in a variety of shapes and styles. There are four categories of unisex spectacle frames: rimless, rimless, half-eye, and full-rim frames.
Rimless spectacle frames are frames without a frame or rim around the lens. The frame of rimless glasses usually consists of three parts: a nose (bridge) part and two insoles. The lenses are part of a rimless frame; therefore it is generally not advisable to use a high index material, Trivex or polycarbonate, for rimless lenses.
Mounting rimless frame lenses is very complicated; A trained and experienced technician is needed to mount it correctly without cracking or damaging the lens. Usually, they attach rimless lenses to the nose or bridge part and the part that connects to the arms (hinges). They are usually light glasses and suitable for those who want something simple, mature, and sophisticated.
In the semi-rimless spectacle frame design, an edge or frame extends over the area of the top half of the lens or the bottom half on some occasions. A nylon cord often holds the lens at the bottom, but some frames are drilled, making the cord unnecessary.
Semi-rimless glasses have a frame, but not a full-frame around the frame of the lens. It is neither too light nor too heavy, available in a variety of options and colors. Overall suitable for people who want something modern, light, and comfortable to wear for a long time. View our semi-rimless lenses.
Half eye frames
Half-eye frames are similar to bezel-less frames and are generally good for reading. They consist of a bridge that sits on the nose, making it suitable for good reading.
Frames with full border
Full-frame spectacle frames are the most robust and durable because of the frame design around the lens. They consist of a frame or rim that extends completely around the lens. This category of spectacle frames is the strongest and most reliable of all. Full-frame glasses are best suited for children due to their playful nature and tendency to drop things.
These spectacle frames are slightly heavier but durable and suitable for people who lead an active lifestyle.
