Why are titanium glasses so expensive?
Strong and Durable. They are widely used in aerospace technology, jewelry, surgical instruments, and other fields. It is the most progressive material in the eyewear industry. Titanium is a very hard, lightweight metal that is proper for eyeglass frames. With good hardness, high strength, the glasses are not easy to deform. It is not easy to scratch and wear and has good corrosion resistance and plasticity. It has a high melting point, corrosion resistance, and hard electroplating. Titanium can be made into memory metal, which means it can bend and return to its original shape. Hinge is not easy to break, having rust resistance, impact resistance. When it's used in glasses, it fits the bill.If you've ever broken a frame, titanium is possible the best material for you.
How Are Glasses Made?
In this section, we will show you how glasses are made. Here are a few steps.
- Eyeglasses lenses are first made by an optician reviewing your prescription and taking a lens bank that closest matches your prescription.
- The optician puts the lens bank into a grinding machine and grinds it into a shape that matches your prescription even closer.
- Then the glasses lenses are edged and cut into a shape that fits the frame you chose.
- Last, put the cut lenses into a solution so as to protect them from scratches, then give them a tint and more.
After all steps are finished, the glasses are made successfully.
What is the best lens material?
Trivex is a special material from PPG. Compared with PC lenses, the refractive index is lower (only 1.53) but the Abbe number is higher (up to 45), which results in smaller dispersion and better image quality. At the same time, the impact resistance of the Trivex lens is 10 times higher than that of the PC. It is the only explosion-proof safety lens that can withstand external force twists and turns in the market at present.
General glasses material has plastic and metal two categories. Because the children's glasses degrees change faster, from the economic point of view, choosing plastic material is more affordable. And children love to move, they do not pay much attention to pick up and put on glasses. Choosing metal material is easy to distort, affecting the normal wearing. The material of the lens should be light and thin. The transmittance and refractive index should be high, and it should be wear-resistant and not easy to break.
What Are Plano Lenses?
Plano lenses are simply optical lenses which provide no corrective power. That is to say. Plano lenses are eyeglasses lenses that provide no vision correction. They are in widespread use as protective equipment or safety spectacles designed to protect against eye injuries caused by flying dust, metal, wood chips, and other particles.
What Does Plano Mean for Glasses?
If you need a pair of plano glasses, you will see the term plano, PL or 0.00 in the Sphere box on your eye prescription paper. That means that the lens has no corrective power. If only either of your eyes requires correction, you may be given a pair of glasses that as one corrective lens for the affected eye and a plano lens for the unaffected eye.
How to Choose Reading Glasses?
Find the right power. When choosing reading glasses, finding the right power would be the most important thing. All reading glasses will have signs or stickers indicating their power. In most cases, they will range from +1 to +4 diopter, in increments of +0.25. So, when choosing reading glasses, try the lowest power first.
Test-drive the glasses. If you have brought reading material with you, try reading it at a comfortable length. If you hold the material too far out to be able to read it, you should increase the power. Keep testing the differences powers until can read clearly at the distance that’s more comfortable for you.
The definition of titanium alloy is relatively broad. As long as it contains titanium material, it can be called titanium alloy. Therefore, the quality and grade of titanium alloy glasses frames are uneven, and the component of titanium alloy has a direct impact on the price of titanium alloy glasses. Titanium alloy glasses are made not to reduce the cost, but to improve the application performance of the material.
