If you are like most people, you factor in a few different facets when it comes to choosing discount eyeglass frames. One of the things you may consider is the actual visual aspect of the glasses - how they look. In order for a man or a woman to choose the best pair of glasses you should only be considering color or style, but shape as well. As they say, the eyes are the window to the soul. Well, the eyeglasses you choose are ultimately the "frame" of your face. If you have a small face, don't choose an ungodly size of a frame - although BIG is IN nowadays, I simply don't like it! If you have a large face, don't pick small glasses! The next thing you might be looking for as far as trends go is the colors or styles. When it comes to wholesale optical frames you have a whole truckload of options to choose from. Colors; camel, khaki, gold, copper, peach, orange, coral, off-white, fire-engine red, warm blue, black, rose-brown, blue-gray, plum, magenta, pink, jade, blue and demi-amber (darker) tortoise and everything else in between. You can also choose "marbled" looks, checkers, patterns, spots, animal prints - jeez, the list is never ending! When it comes to men and women styles, you can also choose from "brands" or as we like to call them Designer Brands. These are most likely going to be from manufacturers such as Di Caprio, Flexure, Versailles, Peachtree, Capri, 4U, Simply Lite, Artistik Eyewear, Titanium and Slimfold - just to name a few! You can also choose from various other options as well for the "types" of glasses such as; designer sunglasses, soft plastic eyeglass/frames, distance or reading glasses, transition/polarized lenses, rimless frame, photo chromatic, bifocal frame and anti-reflective coating frames. I bought these Polarized ones for my glasses and I love them. They go dark as soon as I go outside in the sun, and they come back to clear as soon as I come inside. It takes literally a few seconds and it does help with the sun. This is also helpful for someone such as myself because I simply cannot see without glass or contacts. So if I have glasses on I can't just switch to sunglasses unless they are prescription. Thus, the reason behind choosing Polarized because its SO convenient for me and, I can see! A lot of older people HAVE to choose a bi-focal frame to fit bi-focal lenses. My mom had these in the last and the SMALL spot where the magnification was so small she could barely find it. Now they have three types of area magnification - the third option is almost as big as the entire lens and it's right where your vision of contact is, so its much easier for people to see using this frame and or lens. So as you can see, people have high demands when choosing glasses, so if you are a retailer who's looking to update your merchandise and fashionable offerings, be sure to find an eyeglass frame manufacturer that is reliable and up-to-date!
