Modern Twist in the traditional glasses

Earlier there were limited options of buying glasses frames around the world.  We have seen our grandparents, school teachers, doctors etc. wearing thick broad black glasses. There is no doubt that they used to look so awfully boring while every specs wearer would be sporting similar kinds of eyeglasses.  The options for eyeglass frames were handful and included black or transparent plastic frames, metal glasses in gold or silver, round glasses etc.

However, things have changed since the past few decades when the revolution in the eyewear industry took birth. Broken are the barriers and the limited edition of those resembling eyeglasses. Eyewear manufacturers and the creative minds found that there is an ocean to explore behind the square and round shaped black bold glasses frames. And that the prescription glasses user should not feel embarrassed. Instead, they should consider their eyeglasses more as an accessory, something that adds to the overall personality, enhances the style statement and makes you look attractive too.

Changes in the shape

What used to be square, rectangular and round have taken various different shapes in the eyewear industry. Nowadays, the shapes of the eyeglasses are many. There are aviators, cat eyes, wayfarer glasses, browliners, D-shape glasses, triangle glasses and various geometrical shape glasses. The weird and unusual shapes also consist of shapes like star, heart, etc.  In fact, some of the glasses frames come with the combination of two shapes such as half circle glasses and half wayfarer glasses.  Edges are also an integral part of the shapes of the frames, some are smoothened to round curves while some are pointed shapes.


Black glasses, red, white and transparent used to be the most dominated shades of frames in the early 1980s. But not anymore. The updated version of glasses consists of as many colours and patterns that you can think of.  Not only you can match the colour of glasses with your outfit, you get to match the glasses with the occasion. For instance, if you are wearing an animal print dress like Leopard print, it is possible to get glasses with similar frames.  On the other hand, if you are going to work, you must wear eyeglasses that look pretty professional like the one with half-rim or rimless glasses in a thin frame. Whereas when you are partying or outing, you can opt for unusual, creative glasses with dual tone, or patterns of marble, tortoiseshell etc.


The age of bold and huge eyeglasses covering half of your face from forehead to cheeks are gone. Now the frames are available in sizes that suit your face and persona.  From small to bigger, you get every shape of eyeglasses according to the shape of your face, profession, occasion as well as your personal choice.

Frame material has also seen an immense transformation from plastic and metal glasses frames to better versions such as Acetate, Titanium, Wood, stainless steel and even ivory frames are available in the market.
