What Glasses Should Be
At Insight Eyecare, we believe glasses should last you for years. We value quality, and we are always searching for new, interesting, innovative, and quality frame lines. We hated watching some of the most popular frame lines decrease in quality from year to year. That is why you will not find common brands such as Rayban, Oakley, etc at our practices. Insight Eyecare offers frames to meet every need. We have ultra durable titanium frames from companies such as Blackfin and Arbor. You will find screwless lightweight designs from OVVO and Mykita. Many of our frame lines are hand-built in countries such as Japan, Germany, France, and even the USA. These frames are designed to last for years, such as SALT, whose founder started the company on the idea of making frames of a quality that would be passed down to the next generation. From our experience they live up to the bar they set there.
Many of the frame lines we carry are sold at less than ten places in Oklahoma, some less than 5. This allows our patients to have more unique frames from all their friends and families. Insight also has some options to allow you to custom color your frames.
Quality Frames for a Quality Cost
When it comes to purchasing eyeglasses, it can be tempting to opt for a cheaper frame to save money. However in the thousands of patients we help each year, we’ve seen firsthand how cheaper glasses do not last as long, nor do they provide the quality of vision as their high-quality counterparts. However, investing in a quality eyeglasses frame can provide numerous benefits in the long run. Here are some reasons why buying quality eyeglasses frames is beneficial:
- Durability: Quality eyeglasses frames are made from stronger materials, such as titanium or stainless steel, which make them more durable and resistant to bending or breaking. This means that your eyeglasses are less likely to need frequent repairs or replacements. There can also be a large difference in the types of plastics used and how they are made. Plastic frames last longer when they are cut from a solid block of acetate plastic versus heated and poured into a mold.
- Comfort: Cheap eyeglasses frames are often made from low-quality materials that can cause discomfort, such as plastic or low-grade metals. Investing in a high-quality frame means that the glasses will fit more comfortably, reducing the chances of causing irritation or headaches. High Quality materials also have less chance of reacting with skin.
- Style: Quality eyeglasses frames tend to be designed with more attention to detail and aesthetics, resulting in frames that are more stylish and modern. A good-looking frame can improve your overall appearance and boost your self-confidence. Glasses are the only thing you wear every single day. Everyone you interact with views you while wearing them. Having a frame you love the look of creates a wonderful feeling every time you wear it.
- Customization: Higher-end frames often provide more customization options, such as adjustable nose pads or temple arms that can be fitted to your head size and shape. This ensures that your glasses fit perfectly and remain comfortable throughout the day. Lesser quality frames do not hold their adjustment to your face and require more trips to be refit. This wastes your time and causes more discomfort.
- Lens Protection: Quality frames provide better support and protection for your lenses, which can help extend their lifespan and keep them scratch-free. This means you’ll need to replace your lenses less frequently, which can save you money in the long run. When you do need to replace your lenses, quality frames last longer enabling to be reused safer.
- Better Value: While quality eyeglasses frames may initially cost more, they provide better value in the long run. They last longer, require less maintenance, and can save you money on lens replacements.
- Health: Investing in a quality eyeglasses frame can also have health benefits. Poorly made frames can cause headaches, eye strain, and other vision problems. A quality frame will help to alleviate these issues and ensure that your eyes remain healthy.
- Environmental Impact: Higher-end frames are often made from more sustainable materials, which can help to reduce your carbon footprint. By investing in a quality frame, you’re supporting companies that prioritize ethical and sustainable production practices.
- Brand Reputation: Buying a quality eyeglasses frame from a well-known and respected brand can provide peace of mind. These companies often have a reputation for producing high-quality products that are reliable and long-lasting.
In summary, investing in a quality eyeglasses frame is a smart decision that can provide numerous benefits. Not only are they more durable, comfortable, and stylish, but they also provide better lens protection, customization options, and health benefits. And while they may cost more initially, they offer better value in the long run, and support ethical and sustainable production practices. Ultimately, choosing a quality frame is an investment in your eyes and your overall well-being.
