The frame of prescription glasses
At present, the more common materials for frames are non-metal and metal. Non-metals mainly include TR90, sheet material, etc., and metals include alloys, titanium, and so on. TR90 and sheet material are actually plastics, but they are firm and are not easy be deformed at room temperature. Also, they have good formability so that they can be made in many fashionable styles. The general alloy material has good firmness and flexibility, but the disadvantage is that it is easy to fade. The pure titanium frame is corrosion-resistant and very strong. It is about 40% lighter than the general alloy frame. It must be welded and electroplated in an oxygen-free state, which requires high equipment and technology. Relatively speaking, the price of TR90 and alloys will be lower, and pure titanium will be more expensive. You can choose according to your budget.
When were the first glasses invented?
No one knows when the first pair of glasses were invented, but we do know that the grinding techniques for making simple magnifying glasses have been around since 1000 AD, especially in regions where glasses were already produced (including northern Italy). The earliest artwork of glasses appears in the Treviso Cathedral fresco painted by Tommaso de Modena in 1352. There is reliable evidence that eyeglasses were invented in Italy in the late 13th century. The first pair we think of as eyeglasses appeared in Italian pizza in the late 12th century and looked more like two small magnifying glasses (made of raised glass) riveted together at the top of the handle. In 1266, The English Franciscan Monk Roger Bacon wrote about the scientific principles of corrective lenses, but there is no evidence that he applied this knowledge to the manufacture of eyeglasses.
How to Tighten Glasses by Yourself
After your glasses being used for a while, they will become loosen. In this situation, you may want to ask for a professional optical person to adjust or tighten it. It would be a way but with some inconvenience. So, you can also choose to tighten glasses by yourself.
Why the glasses will become loose? It can be caused by various reasons. Most people wear and remove their glasses several times every day. The back and forth movements of the glasses’ arms will increase the possibility that they will become loose.
If the glasses become loose, you can choose to tighten them by adjusting the temple arms. Most eyeglasses have a screw located at the temple hinge on both sides. To tighten glasses by yourself, you can choose to tighten this screw to make your glasses more comfortable or prevent them from slipping down your nose again. You had better check these screws periodically so you can tighten them before they fall out.
What Are the Disadvantages of High-Index Lenses?

- High index lenses are made from a chemical synthetic blend that’s created through a special manufacturing process. So, high index lenses are expensive than regular lenses. In fact, the price may be more than double that of the traditional counterparts.
- High index lenses can be more brittle than their traditional counterparts and may also be more prone to scrapes and scratches. This can impact their overall durability.
- High index lenses are more reflective than regular lenses, which can make them less effective for brightly lit work environments, outdoor use and nighttime driving on busy highways.
