Surprising though it maybe Titanium is the 9th most abundant element on the planet!
Lightweight, comfortable, hypo-allergenic and durable when wearing, especially rimless titanium eyeglasses , frames made from titanium are 48% lighter in weight than frames made of conventional metal eyeframes like Monel.
Heavier frames can cause pressure on the side of the nose and the bridge, as well as on the tops and behind the ears. The lightness of titanium also makes them a perfect transition from wearing contact lenses. Especially, the rimless titanium eyeglasses give the appearance of “nothing there” and makes the frames very comfortable.
Titanium has been a major player in medical and dental device pars, sporting goods, cosmetics as well as eyeglass frames. It is estimated that 10% of the population is allergic to metal, therefore, titanium being a hypo-allergenic material makes it a great choice when used on our skin.
The allergic reactions to metals such as Nickel include a wide range from asthma, sinusitis, skin rashes or eczema to dermatitis. Although it is advised that you visit a doctor to get a clear picture, the experience of red and inflamed skin along the side of the nose or the ear could be as a result of such allergies.
Titanium also resists breakage under normal use longer than any other frame material. Though not indestructible, these eyeglasses frames are resilient and hold up against corrosion as a result of prolonged exposure to oxygen.
