What is better is that there are glasses made out of newer materials such as carbon fibre and Liteforce now!
Today, glasses are still mostly made out of acetate or stainless steel.
Titanium is revolutionary in the eye wear industry. It became popular for a long time.
Titanium is made 50 percent lighter than stainless steel, strong, not corrosive, durable, and hypo-allergenic.
Carbon fibre is made for racing cars. It has the greatest strength to weight ratio. It is also resistant to corrosion; even more, it’s resistant to fire!
Liteforce is used in Rayban for their frame. It is a semi-crystalline thermoplastic polymer used in aerospace and cutting edge chemical industries. It is impact resistant and chemical-resistant. They offer exceptionally light weight and strength.
