Best Selling Glasses:
Your eyewear should be comfortable as well as classy. That’s why lightweight glasses frames are so delicate you might even forget you’re wearing them! This style provides the comfort and prescription accuracy of EyeBuyDirect eyewear while being as light as possible.
Acetate and plastic materials keep the weight of our frames down, while rimless styles feature a minimalist design to become even lighter. You can find the exact weight of all of our frames in the ‘frame details’ section.
Rimless eyeglasses take out the material surrounding the lenses by securely attaching to the temples and nose bridge instead. As far as light glasses frames go, this style is practically weightless. Their minimalist stylings are perfect for a sophisticated and classy look.
Semi-rimless frames are a good compromise between rimless and fully-rimmed frames. The rims along the top of the lens help keep them stable, while the open bottom sections make them one of the most lightweight eyeglasses styles.
Even though they are made with metal, our wireframe glasses tend to be on the lighter side. Thin metal glasses frames are great as a pair of vintage-looking reading glasses and are lightweight enough for extended wearing.
Lightweight glasses come in all kinds of shapes, sizes, and materials, but there are a few that feel like they weigh next to nothing which is great for kids, sports players, and anyone who wants their eyewear to feel like it’s barely there. At EyeBuyDirect, our lightweight glasses are made of plastic, metal, and acetate, titanium,carbon fiber and aluminum alloy for something thin and fresh.
You bet! And paradoxically so, considering titanium is the most durable material offered at EyeBuyDirect. Titanium is a metal known to be super strong, which means glasses made from the material are ideal for athletes and children with active lifestyles. The fact that titanium glasses are lightweight and robust means they make for the perfect pair of eyewear for all kinds of prescriptions, but an added strength is how stylish they look beyond their functional purposes. Titanium’s ideal for rimless pairs as it keeps the minimalist frames sturdy, but browse our selection of frames in rectangular, round, geometric, and more styles for a lightweight pair with a strength in style.
No, not by a long shot! Some can, of course, but some of our strongest eyeglass styles are the lightest weight. The best materials for a strong, lightweight pair are titanium, aluminum, and carbon fiber. The lightweight nature of these frames means they’re not only strong, but comfortable and extra stylish, too. If you’re in the market for a lightweight pair, then look no further than what we’ve got..
The short answer’s yes, the higher the lens index, the thinner the lens, which makes it lighter than a standard lens. But you should never choose a lens according to its weight. The lens thickness you receive depends on your prescription and vision correction needs. Thinner lenses are lightweight, more expensive, and naturally more stylish. They accommodate all kinds of vision correction needs, including higher prescriptions. A 1.5 lens index is thicker than a 1.74 lens index, the latter being the thinnest lens we offer at EyeBuyDirect.
