Frame Choice for Long-Lasting Sunglasses

Bright   A pair of sunglasses might last a few weeks or a few decades, depending on the quality of the materials. You might have avoided buying expensive sunglasses because of the potential for losing such a valuable accessory, but it's possible to get long-lasting and durable eyewear even if you don't spend a ton of money to do it.

There are several factors to consider when looking for durable sunglasses, and price often doesn't enter into the equation. Sometimes, the price of a pair of sunglasses is only dependent upon whether there's a designer name on the frame somewhere or the sunglasses were sold in a designer shop.

Contrary to popular belief, it is possible to buy a pair of cheap sunglasses and have a pair that will last a nice, long time, even with heavy use. Often, the only thing that can doom a pair of sunglasses is if you accidentally lose them!

Choosing a Frame Material

One of the primary features of a pair of sunglasses is the frame material. There are several materials used in today's sunglasses and they're all great for durability. Even a plastic pair of sunglasses will last a decent amount of time as long as they're not left outside on a table somewhere for several days to bake in the sun.

Common types of frame materials include metal, nylon, and plastic. Average pairs of sunglasses that cost a few dollars in the grocery store are usually made of plastic. Plastic is very lightweight and if you're engaging in some casual sports or a nice, afternoon walk you can wear plastic sunglasses for several years..

Metal sunglasses tend to be a little more expensive and are usually quite strong, but you might want the sleek look that a pair of metal sunglasses can offer. Remember that metal sunglasses might get bent if you sit on them, so if you're careless with sunglasses and want them to last a long time, it might be best to get a pair made of plastic.

Nylon frames are another option and they're very strong and flexible. Just about any occasion is great for a pair of sunglasses with a nylon frame and they're also terrific for sports because they are flexible and won't break easily if you're engaged in some heavy duty sports.

Tips for Making Glasses Last Longer

One of the best ways to extend the lifespan of your sunglasses is to get a pair that has removable lenses. The frames on most sunglasses often last a long time no matter the total cost of the sunglasses, but after a while the lenses might become scratched.

There's no reason to throw out a pair of sunglasses with great frames. All you have to do is find some replacement lenses and fit them into the sunglasses.

Some pairs of cheap designer sunglasses come with extra lenses, but sometimes it's possible to find replacement lenses for a pair of sunglasses you really like, even if they didn't initially come with extra lenses.

You might want to invest in a case or special cloth pocket for your sunglasses. Simply tossing them in your glove box when you're done for the day might scratch or damage them over time. If your vehicle doesn’t have a spot made specifically for sunglasses, you might want to buy a simple case to keep your sunglasses safe.

Remember, even if your sunglasses cost $10 or $20, it's possible to keep them in great shape with smart care.
