When facing a recent survey about men’s eyeglasses, about 88 percent of the respondents said that the comfort and fit of the glasses was the most important factor for them in choosing an eyeglasses frame. Many others claimed that durability was the most important to them. Although they are concerned with style as well, men, as is obviously shown in the results of the survey, certainly won’t forsake comfort, fit and durability just to look good. Here, we list some of the key areas to check out to ensure the most important factors on men’s mind in choosing men’s glasses frames.

To achieve comfort and fit, first of all, you need to ensure that the temples don’t dig into the side of your head. Make sure the frames are wide enough for your face and choose the frames whose edges protrude slightly beyond your face. In this way the temples don’t touch your head as they extend back to your ears. Second, you need to make sure the length of the temples match your condition. When you are in the store, ask your optician the lengths they can order and try different lengths on until you find one pair that suits you. Once purchased, the lengths of the temples can’t be changed, so make sure your select the best length. Besides temples, the nosepiece is essential in making the glasses comfortable on your face. The best nosepieces out there are the adjustable silicone nose pads. These pads can be re-adjusted for the perfect fit, making your glasses wearing experience very comfortable. For frames without adjustable nose pads, make sure the fit is secure without pinching your nose.

If you want a pair of frames that will last longer than the usual frames, your should consider the material from which the frames are made from titanium, stainless steel and flexible materials. For example, flexon are among the best materials to make durable frames. Titanium and stainless steel are much stronger than other metal frame materials and therefore last longer. As for Flexon,what makes it such a good choice of material is its flexibiltiy. This titanium-based alloy will go back into its original shape even after being twisted, bent or crushed. So, if you want a pair of frames that will last, these three materials are the way to go.
