Acetate is a hypoallergenic material, which means it’s very rare for it to cause allergic reactions. Your frames will be in contact with your face all through the day, so it’s important to find a material that doesn’t irritate your skin.
Acetate is a type of plastic made from renewable plant material. Other types of plastic are petroleum based which means they aren’t as good for the environment as acetate glasses.
Acetate is a really adaptable material. We stock acetate frames in all shapes and sizes, from browlines to cat eyes. It’s easy to find a frame that suits your style.

Transition lenses feature a technology that allows them to react to the surrounding light level, becoming lighter or darker depending on what’s needed. All of our acetate frames can be fitted with transition lenses by selecting ‘light adjusting’ when checking out.
