How is titanium metal used in eyewear?
Titanium was introduced to the world of eyewear with the use of pure titanium and titanium alloy materials. Both are low in density, yet high in strength, giving them the extremely lightweight, durable features glasses wearers have demanded for decades.
Pure titanium is 100% titanium, while titanium alloy is pure titanium mixed with aluminum, nickel, copper, iron, or other high-quality elements.
Even lighter than the standard titanium frame, the titanium rimless frames weigh in at about seven grams. For some, it may feel as if they’re not wearing glasses at all!
Beyond lightweight, many consider titanium alloy frames to be ultra-lightweight.
Are titanium glasses frames expensive?
Not always! With all the pros, one might expect that titanium glasses would cost a fortune. That’s simply not the case.
Although they can cost a bit more than some other materials (e.g., plastics), the selection of titanium frames at Yesglasses is highly affordable. Match that with our 100% Fit Guarantee, and you’re looking at a terrific deal on prescription and non-prescription glasses you’re certain to love.
How long do titanium glasses last?
If you take proper care of your titanium frames, they should last you a very long time and will have no problem hanging in there with you through multiple sets of lenses.
Take the enduring nature of titanium into account, and you may be investing in glasses frames that last you several eye prescriptions.
Remember: Even if your frames are in good shape, you’ll still want to update your eye prescription every two years.
Will titanium glasses rust?
No, titanium glasses will not rust or tarnish. Unlike certain types of stainless steel, titanium has a natural resistance to corrosion.
It’s also great news for those wanting glasses that don’t get ruined by sweat or moisture. If you love metal frames and spend a lot of time at the beach, on the water, or in places that get particularly hot, titanium’s an awesome choice.
In short, anyone wanting a quality metal frame that won’t oxidize or turn green, titanium frames may be the choice for you!
Are titanium eyeglasses better than plastic?
Sometimes, but it all depends on your needs and expectations.
For those wanting the most affordable option in a wide array of colors, plastic frames may be the way to go. That said, titanium eyewear tends to be lighter and more durable than plastic and can still be purchased in a variety of stunning colors, including rose gold and silver.
Both titanium and plastic glasses are wonderful options. It all comes down to you.
