Full Rim Eyeglasses FAQs

What are full-rim glasses?

Full-rim eyeglasses completely enclose the lenses. And while it may seem like this type of design doesn’t leave you with a great deal of options, you shouldn’t underestimate what you have available. Full-rim glasses are among the sturdiest and most impact-resistant on the market. But they also come in a wide variety of colors, styles, and sizes. Full-rim frames are used in the majority of eyeglasses, and they can be made in a variety of materials (from metal and titanium to plastic and wood-textured materials).

How long do glasses frames last?

Glasses frames will last an average of two years, but you should get new glasses if you see changes in your vision. Some of the signs that you may need to get your eyes checked include but may not be limited to:

Are full-rim glasses more durable than half-rim glasses?

A common question that many people ask is whether they should get half-rim or full-rim eyeglasses. And while there are a variety of options in every type of eyewear, it all comes down to your personal preference. Full-rim glasses completely enclose the lenses, while half-rim glasses only cover part of them. But while half-rim or rimless glasses might give you more options in terms of style, full-rim frames are the sturdiest. That’s why parents are often advised to give their kids these types of rimmed glasses. Not only can they handle frequent drops and other accidents (which are common with children), but they can also accommodate larger lenses (which is needed for people who have a stronger prescription).

What are the different types of frames for eyeglasses?

The frame is one of the first things to consider when you’re shopping for glasses. There are three basic types, and each of them have their own characteristics. Here are the three main types of frames for eyeglasses:

  • Full-Rim Frames — These frames completely outline the lenses, which is a good option if you want to enhance the features of your eyes. They’re also the sturdiest option on the market today.
  • Half-rim Frames — These frames will outline the top part of the lenses, which can enhance the upper part of your face. They can also give you a more sophisticated look. And because of their lightweight design, they can be more comfortable than full-rim glasses.
  • Rimless Frames — These frames are exactly as the name suggests. They only have the temples and nose bridge, so they don’t have rims. But they’re a little more delicate than the other frame types.

How do I know if my glasses are too big?

Your glasses might be too big if they keep sliding down your nose or fall off your face. The frames need to fit horizontally with your eyes, and they should tilt slightly forward so the bottom of the frame is closer. They also need to be level with your face without sitting on your cheeks. Your eyes need to look through the center of the lenses, and the temple arms shouldn’t be too tight against your face. If your eyes are pointed toward the nosepiece, your glasses may be too big. And the nose pads need to fit comfortably on both sides of your nose, so the glasses don’t slip as you shift your head. If even the smallest movements cause them to slip, they’re probably too big.

Be sure speak to a professional, so you can find a pair of glasses that are right for your face.
