Lightweight Glasses Frames for Men and Women
Your eyewear should be comfortable as well as classy. That’s why lightweight glasses frames are so delicate you might even forget you’re wearing them! This style provides the comfort and prescription accuracy of EyeBuyDirect eyewear while being as light as possible.
Acetate and plastic materials keep the weight of our frames down, while rimless styles feature a minimalist design to become even lighter. You can find the exact weight of all of our frames in the ‘frame details’ section.
Rimless eyeglasses take out the material surrounding the lenses by securely attaching to the temples and nose bridge instead. As far as light glasses frames go, this style is practically weightless. Their minimalist stylings are perfect for a sophisticated and classy look.
Semi-rimless frames are a good compromise between rimless and fully-rimmed frames. The rims along the top of the lens help keep them stable, while the open bottom sections make them one of the most lightweight eyeglasses styles.
Wire Frame Eyeglass Frames
Even though they are made with metal, our wireframe glasses tend to be on the lighter side. Thin metal glasses frames are great as a pair of vintage-looking reading glasses and is lightweight enough for extended wearing.
Lenses for Lightweight Eyeglasses
Multifocal Progressive Lenses
Comfort is a high priority for reading glasses. Lightweight glasses frames make ideal readers because they don’t put much weight on your nose and ears, making them easy to wear over long periods. Progressive lenses are designed to correct vision up close and far away — perfect for anyone who needs near and far-sighted correction.
High Index Lenses
If you’re interested in lightweight eyeglass frames, why not take a look at our lightweight lenses too? High index lenses are thinner and lighter than normal lenses and are compatible with stronger prescriptions.
Looking for stylish lightweight glasses frames but don’t need vision correction? You can add non-prescription lenses to any of our frames by selecting the ‘non-prescription’ option in the ‘usage’ section at checkout.
Lightweight frames weigh 15 grams or lighter without the lenses.
