Fascinating Material

Acetate frames have always been a popular trend in eyewear. Featuring a modern look and exceptional durability, they give you the best of both worlds. So, what is acetate and why acetate glasses are a must for every trendsetter? Unlike petroleum-based plastics, acetate is a plant-based, environment-friendly material derived from wood or cotton fibers. It is also hypoallergenic, so it’s a perfect solution for people who have sensitive skin. Acetate spectacles do not consist of any type of artificial agents that can bring on an allergic reaction. Made by forming several layers of plastic into large blocks, acetate glasses are super durable and flexible; they can withstand any amount of pressure and stress without losing its elasticity.

The firmness of acetate frames allows them to retain the luster of their color or design. Comfort is highly important if you wear your glasses daily. Acetate is a super lightweight plastic, so it’s the ideal material for eyeglass frames. Basically, the nose pads are molded into the rest of the frame which gives much more comfort and eliminates friction. While wearing acetate glasses, you don’t have to worry about getting those red marks on your nose like when you wear metal frames. Furthermore, with acetate frames you are offered an immense range of designs, colors, and patterns to choose from. It doesn’t mean that other frame materials are worse. Your choice of frame will depend on a variety of factors such as your lifestyle, your priorities, and your budget. At EuroOptica, we also offer amazing collections of high-end titanium and buffalo horn glasses as well.
