titanium prescription glasses

titanium prescription glasses

Titanium glasses were first conceptualized in 1972 when Nikon realized the potential for the use of the material to improve frame production. In 1982, it was released to the market for the first time at an eyewear exhibition held in Fukushima, Japan.
The introduction of titanium eyeglass frames was a pivotal moment in the eyewear industry. It showed the world that glasses didn't have to be made out of heavy, bulky materials and could instead be lightweight and comfortable to wear.
It wasn’t long before titanium frames could be spotted on faces all across the globe, both stylish and practical.
Today, titanium prescription glasses account for 30% of all glasses produced throughout the world. The continued popularity of this material for frames has opened the door for all sorts of great, new modern titanium frame designs to find their way to retail shelves.
Read on to learn more about why this material became and stayed such a popular choice.

Check size on your frame

Most frames have size displayed on the inside of the frame arm

Or use a ruler

Use a ruler to measure your existing frame as shown below. Frame sizes are measured in millimeters, so you need to use a ruler that is marked in centimeters and millimeters. If you don't have millimeter ruler, you can click here to print it, or take measurements in inches. Note that measurements in inches need to be taken with the precision of 1/16 (one half of 1/8 if your ruler does not have more precise markings)

I got it! Here is My Size

Measure your PD

In some cases your vision correction doctor may forget to give you your PD (pupillary distance). The best option will be to ask your doctor to measure it. It is part of your prescription and an eye doctor needs to provide it.

If this is not possible, you may use the methods listed below.

The easiest way:
1) Wear any glasses with clear lenses.
2) Use a mirror or ask a friend or family member to mark your pupil location on the clear lenses using a dry erase marker. They must stand in front of you and be at the same height as yours. If you use a mirror make sure you stand 3ft from the mirror and your general stare is directed to the center of the glasses.
3) Using a ruler with a millimeter range, measure the distance between the two dots and that’s your PD

If you don’t have in your possession glasses with clear lenses, you may measure your PD using this method:
1) Obtain a ruler with millimeter values
2) Place the ruler horizontally on your nose bridge, zero slightly below your right eye;
3) Ask a friend or use your mirror to see the distance on the roller. The distance measured is your PD.

Although we don’t recommend this option, if you are unable to use the methods above, you may use the general PD for: Women 62 and Men 64.
