Why Glasses Are Expensive
Ever wondered why the frames of your glasses are more expensive than the lenses themselves?
Ever thought it seemed odd given it’s the lenses that improve your eye sight?
Quality glasses are made from cellulose acetate which is derived from cotton and wood pulp.
It goes through many production steps, is usually aged, and then assembled and polished by hand by highly trained technicians.
Acetate ensures the glasses are more flexible, adapt to your face over time, and less likely to break unlike cheaper versions of plastic.
It is also hypoallergenic and bacteria resistant meaning the frames are less likely to irritate your skin.
So when you next need glasses, you’ll know why the frames can be pricey.
