On One Hand...
Frames designed with spring hinges offer more than just excellent durability. Try out this little trick: Only have one hand free? Just insert one thumb underneath both temples and lift it. The spring-loaded design will let you open up your favorite pair with just a single finger. No effort required. No fuss needed.
The Difference in Durability
Spring hinged frames offer the best in terms of durability. However, the extra toughness does come at a price. While the lifespans of spring hinged glasses are much longer than those of standard hinged glasses, the process to repair them is much more intricate.
When it comes to regular framed glasses, EyeBuyDirect happily provides specialized screwdrivers so that customers can personally make small tweaks and repairs. However, spring-hinged glasses are more complex to salvage and might have to be taken in for professional repairs. Unless you're an expert DIYer, we recommend paying a visit to your local eyewear shop.
