When shopping for eyeglass frames, one of the major decisions to make is whether to go with a plastic or metal composition. Each material gives a pair of frames completely different characteristics, as this video explains.
Plastic frames are generally thicker and more durable than metal ones, which may make them better for children. Metal frames, on the other hand, are lightweight and sleek, and can be better for people who play sports.
For a more complete comparison of the difference between plastic and metal frames, schedule an appointment with an optometrist at Wize Eyes. Our experienced staff can help you choose the best frames for your lifestyle and your face. Call our Long Island store today at (516) 358-0040.
