The majority of frames offered at Wing Eyecare are metal in composition. There are several different types of metals available, including stainless steel, monel, and titanium.
The benefits of these metals are listed below:
- Stainless Steel: Strong, yet ultra light weight, these frames are generally very thin and flexible for those patients who prefer a comfortable, unobtrusive appearance. This metal is also stain and corrosion resistant.
- Monel: This popular metal comprises the majority of metal frames on the market. It is especially prevalent in designer frames as it allows for fine details to be carved and molded. This metal also provides for a variety of color overlays.
- Titanium: This space-age metal is the same material used in the construction of the Space Shuttle. It is ultra strong and very light weight. One of the most popular features of this material is its Non-Allergenic properties. If you have ever owned a metal frame that became discolored or corroded due to skin contact, then titanium will provide a good solution.
