Cheap Rimless Glasses
All the prescription glasses in this section are rimless.
Advantages of Rimless Glasses
By definition rimless glasses have no frame around the lenses. The advantages of this are improved vision (as there is no frame in your eyeline to obcure part of your vision) and lighter glasses. In overall terms this makes the wearing of glasses better as they are less of a distraction and the lighter weight on the nose is more comfortable and in some cases people can forget they are wearing glasses..
The Disadvantages of Rimless Glasses
On balance the advantages outweigh the disadvantages however it is important to remember that the frame of the glasses is in place to provide strength and rigidity to glasses. Without the frame around the lenses the glasses are more delicate and can be easily broken. Looked after carefully though, rimless glasses can (and do) last as long as framed glasses with all the advantages shown above.
Stylish Rimless Glasses
Rimless Glasses can be very stylish and, without the frame around the lens to distract from your face, can allow your own eyes and facial features to be seen more clearly. This is why many celebrities wear rimless glasses.
