Plastic frames come in a variety of geek chic flavors as numerous as colors of gum stuck underneath the bar stools (sorry for that image.) Additionally the wider frames can usually accommodate thicker lenses in case your prescription getting close to those double digits. Plastic frames can also come spring loaded in some brands, and of course if you’ve got a metal allergy, then plastic frames definitely your best bet.

Metal frames are often more sleek and come in many varieties as well. The frames are often more malleable with spring loaded hinges and adjustable nose pads. This makes metal frames a good choice for people that are sporty and want glasses that will stay no matter what. Metal frames also come in rimless & semi-rimless varieties for the really modern, minimalistic look.Adidas A625 6053 D
