Lightweight Eyewear Is Not Light Years Away. It’s here to stay.

Let’s debunk a few myths about lightweight glasses:

Have you ever had a pair of eyewear that was heavy, slid down your nose every 5 seconds and left you with a headache by the end of the day?

If you said yes, your not the only one.

We used to think if glasses were heavy and thick it was a sign of well-made glasses.  However, that’s not the philosophy today.  Thin glasses, rimless glasses, comfortable glasses, and lightweight glasses are all words used to describe modern glasses.

In today’s fashion eyewear world, most people have several pairs of glasses to display their favorite smart, funky or even sporty attitude.  And yes, you can achieve these looks in a stunning lightweight way.

Lightweight glasses in Kansas City are available in hundreds of unique styles.

You’re probably wondering if lightweight glasses are durable like their thick counterparts. The answer is yes. Just because glasses feel as light as a paperclip, doesn’t mean they will fall apart if you blow on them.
