The EyeGlass Shoppe Advances Eyewear Style for Honolulu, HI Patrons with The Latest in Lightweight, Thin Lenses
In the past few decades, eyeglass technology has rapidly improved to benefit the wearer. This innovation lies primarily in the development of new materials for eyewear frames and lenses. As part of a commitment to fitting Honolulu patrons with the best eyewear available, The EyeGlass Shoppe utilizes the most advanced ophthalmic materials, like thin lenses. Now, even those patrons with extra special eyewear needs can feel comfortable and stylish in their glasses.
Years ago, eyeglass lenses were mostly limited to two materials: glass and plastic. For very nearsighted or very farsighted individuals, this usually meant thick, heavy and uncomfortable lenses that poked out the rim of the frame and limited the eyewear styles one could select. These heavy lenses would also strain the temples and bridge of the glasses, requiring that they frequently be adjusted by a frame stylist or optician and making them prone to slip or leave marks on the wearer’s face. For some people, it meant neglecting to wear their glasses for the sake of comfort and appearance. This no longer needs to be so.
Thanks to lightweight, thin lens materials like polycarbonate, even specialized prescriptions can be fit into a strong, shatter resistant lenses. Polycarbonate thin lenses, like those offered at Honolulu’s The EyeGlass Shoppe, give the wear a greater selection of styles, as frames needn’t be bulky or thick to support the lens’ width and weight. Unlike glass or standard plastic lenses that may feel weighty at the end of a long day of wear, thin lenses are lighter and more comfortable. Polycarbonate is more resistant to scratches and won’t shatter as glass or plastic could, therefore, thin lenses are safer. They’re a must for children and highly beneficial for adults who want to avoid the cost of replacing eyewear prematurely due to lens scratches. Selecting glasses that make you look great and feel comfortable means you’ll wear them, and as a result, save you the grief of worsening vision problems.
