Eyeglasses can be classified according to different standards. Based on whether or not the lenses have powers, they can be classified into prescription eyeglasses or non-prescription eyeglasses; on the materials of the frames, the classification can lie in to metal, plastic and some other materials that are used in making frames. While metal and plastic have for long been the predominating materials used for frame making, there hasn't been any suggestion that one is taking over the other to become the sole super material. Each of the two has its advantages and disadvantages. That said, plastic frame glasses, with innovations brought about by the development in glasses making techniques, are really immaculate combination of fashion, comfort and durability.

What we are experiencing right now is a period in which plastic frame glasses come in kaleidoscopic styles. Cat eye glasses, thick framed glasses, small round, aviator glasses, wrap around, all these are at your disposal.

Speaking of comfort of plastic frame glasses, it is a well known fact among wearers that plastic is generally lighter than metal. Thus the glasses framed with plastic can be a hell lot of lighter and hence more comfortable to wear than metal glasses. Besides being lightweight, plastic glasses are also very convenient to put on since the spring hinges that are applied to some of them make wearing them a single handed easy job.
