Besides the fit, style and look of a pair of eyeglasses, it’s also essential to consider these five points before you roll a thumbs up to your next pair of glasses.

Have you ever been curious about how your computer glasses are made? You must. Because it’s the real tell-tale of the quality and longevity of your glasses. Dig into the technology used to engineer your glasses. From rivets—the stainless steel pins on both front-ends—to the temple arms and the tips; examine every minute detail of the frame for comfort and ease of wearing, because you’ll need them for at least 16 hours a day.
A good frame with inaccurate lenses is of no good! So, ask your retailer how your lenses are made? At Lenskart, they are shaped by lasers using robotic technology that delivers micro-precision lenses with 0.00-degree margin of power error. So, there’s simply no chance of inaccuracy in your power, something you should steer clear of to avoid further eye strain if you wear prescription glasses.
Next is to check the hallmark of robustness and comfort which is a function of the material of your frame. Ask the right questions: is it made of wood, metal, plastic, acetate? Is this material hypoallergenic? Avoid lower quality metals such as zinc and nickel because eventually these can oxidize and turn greenish. Today, most people opt for stainless steel or cellulose acetate frames for two obvious reasons. First, they are less likely to cause an allergic reaction; and second, they won’t deteriorate over time. A coating of titanium and PVD metal adds extra years to the life of your frame.
