If you are Looking For Lightweight Glasses have a read of our informative guide on the best picks that are currently out there.

Lightweight-Glasses

 

If you want the most comfortable glasses possible, the best way to achieve that is by opting for lightweight frames. Here at The Spectacle Factory, we stock several ranges of ultra-lightweight glasses. In this blog, I’m going to talk about a few of them.

 

The best glasses you can buy?

 

 

My usual recommendation when someone asks for lightweight glasses is Reykjavik Eyes. I personally believe they are technically the best eyewear available today. They are made from titanium – but lots of glasses are made from titanium. What makes Reykjavik Eyes special is that they’re made from one piece of titanium.

That remarkable feat of engineering means no screws, no solders and no springs – three things which usually mean increased weight and of course can also be weak points.  As a result, these frames are probably the strongest in the world despite their apparent fragility.

 

Now, functional glasses don’t usually equate to cool glasses… but that’s not the case here. Reykjavik Eyes are designed by Gunnar Gunnarson, a young, trendy inventor who paid as much attention to style as he did to functionality. I think these glasses are very cool, in a typical minimalist Scandinavian way.

The Official Lightest Glasses in the World

 

That accolade goes to Flair. The inventors of rimless glasses, Flair have always led the way when it comes to feather light frames. Their model 916 weighs something crazy like 3 grams. It is so light it doesn’t even need nose pads:

That piece is great if you like glasses which disappear. But if you want a bit more bling, Flair are great at that too:

Many of their frames are either gold plated, or solid gold, and feature the highest-grade Swarovski crystals.

 

All our Flair rimless glasses feature a unique mounting system which means that, unlike other rimless glasses, they don’t come loose. They are in fact incredibly flexible, so you don’t need to worry that you’re going to break them.

 

 

Lightweight but Fashionable

 

Arguably the most stylish lightweight glasses are MODO’s Paper-Thin titanium range.

To look at this frame, you wouldn’t think it was particularly lightweight. Think again. The Paper-Thin collection weigh just 6.8 grams. And you get an ultra-modern look:

 

It’s a really eclectic range too, which virtually every shape and colour you can imagine:

MODO also do some really cool lightweight sunglasses. Check out this video:

 

 

So those are my 3 top picks for lightweight glasses. Across just those 3 brands, we stock over 100 pieces for you to try on in our Preston store. Plus over 1000 others.

I think we have the biggest stock of lightweight glasses in Lancashire.

So if you’re looking for comfort and a style that reflects your character, you’ve found the right place. If you’ve any questions, just tweet me @specfactory or call us on 01772 312213.

Living some 300 miles from The Spectacle Factory visiting was not an option for me, however, after checking all the reviews I decided not only to buy my J.F. Rey frames (seen on an online video by Robert) but also have my Zeiss smart life progressive lenses made by them. I had no worries. After taking advice from Robert the measurements required for the lenses were done locally at a nominal cost. I am now the proud owner of a pair of handmade 'wow' glasses and a very happy new customer. Use them with confidence. The customer service is truely outstanding.

Well they you pay for what you get. It’s definitely true of The Spectacle Factory. There customer service is the best I have experienced anywhere. I was not rushed with any decision and I was made to feel like I was there most important customer. What I paid was an eye watering amount but I got smartlife ziess lenses and frames that are very comfortable. I now also have very clear vision when reading. I thought it was not clear due to lighting in modern offices and homes. Wrong it was bad lenses and persecution not being quite right. Thank you for sorting it all out at the first attempt.

ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT I have been using the Spectacle Factory for a long time, but the latest visit was the best BY FAR..... I desperately needed an eye test, and was fitted in quickly. James, the optician, was excellent , as usual. 4 members of staff were outstanding in the service I received. Robert, Ben and Emma were absolutely perfect.....and Ruth, the manager was excellent, as she always is. The best visit by far...I cannot rate this place higher !!!

After reading all the positive reviews I decided that a 40 minute drive would be worth it to try and get a new prescription and frames- I wear my glasses all day so need to get this right. I was so impressed with everyone’s desire to be helpful and make sure I was happy at every part of my visit. I wasn’t the quickest at choosing new frames but never felt rushed by Robert. He listened and gave helpful advice as we worked through choosing the frames and lenses I needed. They have a huge range of frames which meant I ended up with a pair I was really happy with. I actually chose a pair of prescription sunglasses as well, which I have been meaning to do for years. I loved the combination of cutting edge technology and personalised service. It’s so nice to see a team that places such a priority on customer satisfaction - they certainly deserve 5 stars.

Fantastic service! I attended the spectacle factory over a year ago for an eye test. They were amazing, and so patient with me! My Polaroid frame broke recently, so in desperate need called the spectacle factory to order a replacement frame. They were so efficient and helpful. Also my frames were covered under warranty and I didn’t have to pay a penny. AMAZING. Couldn’t recommend them anymore!

Visited the Spectacle Factory a couple of weeks ago for the first time. James did my eye test and was very thorough and informative. Chose a pair of glasses afterwards with the help of another member of staff. Great customer service. I have always gone to high street opticians before and never sure what glasses suit me. I was allowed to take my time and offered helpful advice. Love my new glasses which I picked up with the week. I will be returning to the Spectacle factory in the future. Far superior in terms of quality and customer service compared to other opticians I have been too.

My wife and I both have great glasses (and sunglasses) from The Spectacle Factory. Right from our very first visit we have been very impressed with the highest level of care and attention to detail, both with eye tests and the choice of lenses and frames. They seem to have a flair for helping you to choose the right glasses. Once your order is ready, nothing is too much trouble to ensure that the fit and the suitability of your glasses is perfect for your needs and that you are completely happy. Their ongoing service is second to none. We can highly recommend The Spectacle Factory..

The Spectacle Factory offer me the kind of customer service and ability to customise my choice of spectacles that just is simply not available on the High Street. From Initial contact, to delivery of the finished product, you are treated like a loyal friend. Nothing is too much trouble. Unbiased advise, on choosing the correct spectacles for your particular application. A vast range of frames from the very cheapest to the latest designer frames. I choose the Spectacle Factory, because they can provide me with, customised glasses, to align with my particular needs and requirements. Most high street opticians have a 'one size fits all' attitude. The Spectacle Factory does not subscribe to this theory and treats every client as an individual. Their eye sight is very comprehensive and is 50% longer than the industry standard. If you value your eyesight, and want the very best care, this is the place to visit.
