The needs for youth eyewear starts with quality lens materials that are light weight, impact resistant, include scratch protection and give the clearest optics possible. Particular attention should be given to frame materials and its construction to assure comfort, style, and durability for your child’s eyewear.
Here are a few considerations when picking out frame styles for your kiddo:
- New materials from Nano Vista eyewear called siliflex are light weight, allergy free, environmentally friendly, extremely durable and come in endless color options. Nano combines this technology with their patented hinge design that has no screws and can be easily converted to a headband or mini strap.
- Both titanium and stainless steel are durable metals that are light weight and hold frame adjustments to ensure comfort & are available from several eyewear collections.
- Nike and EasyTwist frame styles often use titanium mixed with other metals to form a titanium alloy that is super flexible and literally springs back to shape when it’s durability is tested. This titanium alloy is frequently combined with TurboFlex hinges that will flex 360 degrees!
