Can glasses rust?
In the previous article, we discussed “Can myopia be reversed naturally?”. In this article, let’s talk about “Can glasses rust?”.
As the weather gradually warmed, the skin secreted a lot of oil and sweat. When it reacted, the metal parts such as the temples of the glasses and the nose pads were all rusty. Sometimes even the newly bought glasses are not immune. In severe cases, the skin will be allergic to rusty spectacle frames. I believe this has become a headache for many people who wear spectacle glasses. How can we prevent metal spectacle frames from rusting?
Why do spectacle frames rust?
Before solving this problem, we can first understand the causes of rust spots on the frames and skin allergies due to rust spots. Many alloy products in daily life contain nickel, and direct contact with the skin will cause allergies to sensitive people. The temples and nose pads are the parts that contact the skin with a large area, especially the outer surface of the metal frame and the interior of metal containing a large amount of nickel. Through contact with the skin and erosion of sweat, the appearance of rust spots and skin allergies are caused. Once allergy occurs, it will cause contact dermatitides such as redness, swelling, itching, and yellow water on the surrounding skin.(https://www.koalaeye.com/blogs/our-stories)
The hazards of rusty spectacle frames
The most common allergenic metal is nickel. Once allergy occurs, it can cause contact dermatitides such as redness, swelling, itching, and yellow water on the surrounding skin. Many alloy products in daily life contain nickel, such as coins, various alloy products, electroplated objects, spectacle frames, metal watchbands, belt buckles, artificial jewelry, underwear buckles, etc. Their direct contact with the skin will cause allergies to sensitive people. Therefore, the temples and nose pads are the parts that contact the skin with a larger area. In particular, the outer surface of the metal frame and the metal contain a large amount of nickel, which can cause rust spots and skin corrosion, and allergies through contact with the skin and the erosion of sweat.
How to handle rusty spectacle frame?
Skin allergies are after the rust of the spectacle frame, so we have to solve the problem of rust of the spectacle frame by physical isolation. Apply a layer of transparent nail polish on the metal surface, or add an anti-allergic sleeve on the temple of the eyeglasses so as to separate the skin from the metal by resin. Both of these methods isolate the skin from the spectacle frame, effectively preventing corrosion of the spectacle frame caused by sweat and grease.
Pure titanium spectacle frame
Of course, we still have another option, which is to buy a pair of pure titanium glasses. Pure titanium is lightweight, tough, and compatible with the human body. Also, it has strong corrosion resistance, resistant to rust, does not cause skin allergies, and is more durable. With the gradual popularity of pure titanium materials, the price is gradually becoming more affordable, and people who feel troublesome to wear anti-allergic sleeves can try pure titanium spectacle frames.
