Understanding Your Frame Options
- Key-Hole Bridge
As the name implies, this bridge style found on plastic frames is shaped like a key hole. It should fit in a way that the sides rest on the nose but the center rests above the nose. This shape is used to accommodate people with a thinner bridge of the nose. This bridge must fit well from the start.
- Spring Hinges
This excellent feature makes frames more durable. The spring mechanisms, located in the temple hinges, help the frame maintain adjustment through normal use and give some added durability if they should get some excess wear.
- Cable Temples
This type of temple wraps around the ear and holds the glasses securely in place during all kinds of physical activity. This is an excellent option for young children. Glasses with cable temples may be more difficult to take on and off.
- Separate Nose Pads
This is the most common nose pad configuration of metal frames, with two separate nose pads attached to the frame on metal arms. This design encourages a more custom fit to the nose and helps keep the frame from resting on the face.
- Unfit Bridge
This bridge style found in plastic frames, spreads the weight of the glasses evenly across the nose. It is important to note that if the bridge of a plastic frame does not fit well in the beginning there is little that can be done to adjust for a better fit.
- String mount Semi-Rimless
This term refers to frames that go partially around the lens. The lens is held securely in place by a nylon cord.
