The spirit behind celluloid glasses
Because celluloid material is flammable, it cannot be mechanized and basically needs to be created by hand, which forms a unique set of handcraft modes of Japanese crafters. Today, there are only a few celluloid factories in Japan, and the unique manual process and production are relatively small. This makes celluloid handmade glasses even rarer and more valuable. Celluloid was originally a very common and cheap material, even with a certain degree of danger, but because of the unique craftsmanship of skilled craftsmen, its performance was brought to the extreme, so that celluloid glasses became unique and sought after by some people. The material of the frame is an important factor that determines the comfort of the glasses. While ensuring comfort, people hope that the glasses can have a decorative effect and play a role in clothing matching in different scenes.
Are titanium glasses frames worth it?
In order to exert the flexibility of the material, the β titanium frame is designed to be mostly fine and delicate, and the style is limited by this. So the price of a pure titanium glasses frame is more expensive than the beta titanium frame, of course, the comfort is higher. Beta titanium has better strength, fatigue resistance, and environmental corrosion resistance than pure titanium and other titanium alloys. It has good shape plasticity and can be made into wire and sheet, which is lighter.
Because the texture of pure titanium frame is better, so it is more expensive than other frames, at least should the price reach more than 20 dollars, if the frame is only a few dozen dollars, then it must be fake and inferior. The most important thing to avoid buying fake products is to choose brands. For example, Seiko and other well-known brands rarely have fake and inferior products, so that consumers can be more assured to buy.
Clean Glasses Properly
If the glasses are dirty, don't just wipe them with other cloth. If you use some hard cloth to wipe, it is easy to cause scratches in the lens. Generally speaking, the following cleaning methods are all feasible.
1. Use neutral or alkaline cleaning agent. Remember, toothpaste cannot be used as a substitute for the cleaning agent for spectacle lenses. General optical shops also sell lens cleaners in small bottles, which are easy to carry.
2. Go to the optical shop for professional ultrasonic cleaning. General optical shops provide free cleaning services. The ultrasonic cleaning machine can fully clean every gap and groove of the glasses.
3. Rinse the lens with tap water. Hold the frame in one hand and the cleaner in the other hand. Rub it slowly against the lens, and then rinse it off with clean water. Then wipe it with a glasses cloth or let it dry naturally.
In addition to the glasses cannot be cleaned with alcohol, you should also pay attention to their placement for daily maintenance. Try to avoid putting it under high temperature, and avoid oily, smoke, etc. If you don't use them, put them in the glasses case.

Do I need to buy anti-blue light glasses?
Nowadays, mobile phones and computers are used more and more frequently. Whether at work or in life, it is hard to imagine what life would be like without these electronic products. It is impossible to protect the eyes without using these products. Especially on mobile phones, the current LED screen technology has gradually replaced LCD screens, and the self-luminous characteristics have also caused serious fatigue to the eyes, and there is no need to say that blue light is harmful to the eyes. At present, the truly harmful blue light is the wavelength. In the blue light of 400 to 440 nanometers, this blue light easily causes eyesight fatigue. In the case of heavy use, try to reduce the damage to the eyes and protect the eyes, which is also the main reason for motivating consumers to buy anti-blue glasses.
Parameters of lens material selection
Since the refractive index of the lens material varies for the light of different wavelengths, and white light is made up of various colors of light of different wavelengths, the dispersion phenomenon occurs when the lens refracts white light. The dispersion coefficient is an important index to identify the sharpness of lens imaging, which is usually indicated by Abbe number (Abbe number = dispersion coefficient). The larger the Abbe number, the smaller the dispersion, and vice versa, the smaller the Abbe number, the larger the dispersion, and the worse the resolution of the image.
Humans have been using glass lenses for about 300 years, and it was not until 1947 that the first resin lenses made of CR39 were produced. A big reason for using resin lenses is their safety, i.e. impact resistance. Only lenses that pass the Drop Ball Test are considered safe. Combining the above two parameters, we can compare different lenses.
What are browline frames?
The name browline comes from the design of the frame. The upper part of the frame is thicker than the lower part so that the wearer's natural eyebrow line can be noticed. The top is usually made of acetate or plastic, and the bottom of the lens is wrapped with a thinner wireframe. Later, the browline frames have also been modified to meet the needs of more customers. Some browline frames use nylon wire instead of metal wire in the lower part, while the browline frames with metal wire are more durable and stable. If people with high myopia want to have a pair of half-rim glasses, browline frames are a good choice.
