Advantages of carbon fiber glasses frames
The main reason for choosing carbon fiber to replace traditional plastic and metal materials is that carbon fiber has the characteristics of lightweight and high tensile strength. Spectacle frames made of carbon fiber materials are significantly lighter than traditional metal spectacle frames. In addition, such spectacle frames are impact resistant, has high hardness, wear resistance, are not easy to deform, and will not fade. Also, the carbon fiber material has good biocompatibility and is often used in medical equipment, so it will not cause allergic reactions, and it is not easy to corrode and rust. The lightweight carbon fiber frame is easy to carry, and it is not easy to deform the bridge of the nose when worn on the bridge of the nose, relieves the burden on the nose and ears, is not easy to slip, and is comfortable to wear.
Eyeglass pinches your nose.
Not only can a pair of glasses that pinch your nose be uncomfortable, but chronic stress can also lead to headaches or migraines. How you solve this problem depends on your frame material. If you're wearing a metal frame, just use your thumb to widen the plastic nose pad until the frame fits comfortably. If wearing plastic frames, after soaking the glasses arm in warm water for 30 to 60 seconds, gently press the glasses arm outward to make the glasses more comfortable. If your glasses continue to clamp your nose after adjustment, seek help from a professional optician.
What is the best lens material?
The world's first resin lens was made of CR-39 material, and CR-39 is still the main optical lens material in Europe and the United States. After the end of World War II, people found that compared with glass, the main lens material at that time, the light transmittance of CR-39 is high, and it can block ultraviolet light. In addition, CR-39 can be dyed, not easy to fog, and has small dispersion (CR-39's Abbe number is 58) and other benefits.
It is more reasonable to use a visor
According to experts, if using the sun visor above the seat can solve the problem of dazzling sunlight, it is generally not recommended to use sunglasses. Although high-quality sunglasses can effectively reduce the impact of light on human eyes, they will more or less affect vision. Driving as a high-risk behavior, misjudgment of the environment can easily lead to accidents.

Also, you can choose dedicated driving sunglasses. What needs to be reminded is that if your sunglasses are not usually worn, don't use them alone in the car.
Other problems with titanium frames
For the same volume of frames, alloy frames are twice as likely to break as pure titanium frames, and for the same weight, alloy frames break more easily than pure titanium frames.Therefore, some sellers have to add a lot of copper in alloy material and impure titanium material to increase the toughness of the frame, so that the alloy frame is easy to rust, and long-term wear will be eroded because of the salt in sweat.
