Plastic Frames with Nose Pads

When it comes to plastic frames with nose pads, some people often have the misconception that they’re the most “basic” option available. Truth is, glasses made out of plastic are just as fashionable (and affordable!) than eyewear made out of any other type of material. This is what makes plastic frames with nose pads currently the most popular kind on the market today.

Why We love Plastic Frames with Nose Pads

When one hears the word “plastic”, they usually imagine flimsy things like party cups, tupperware, and take-out utensils. If you think that the materials used to make those items are also used in the manufacturing of plastic glasses, you’re wrong!

The components used to make our glasses is anything but mundane. They’re actually made out of a special, extra-durable plastic called cellulose acetate. Believe it or not, cellulose acetate is a premium material for making glasses.

The sheets of cellulose acetate that frames are cut out of can take on any kind of color. The versatility of this material lets eyewear designers experiment with every kind of hue or pattern under the sun. That’s why we can explore unique options like pink florals and leopard.

The Importance of Nose Pads
