Sunglasses not only serve your appearance, but are also an accessory that protects and ensures the health of your eyes. But have you ever wondered how your favorite sunglasses are made?

1) The appropriate construction materials are selected

The lenses and frames of the glasses must be durable and lightweight. The most common materials used are polycarbonate, CR-39 and lens glass. While correspondingly for the frames are the polycarbonate and the superior quality bone (Acetate).

2) Cutting the lenses to the appropriate size and shape

In the next stage, the special coating of the lenses is done depending on the properties we want to give them. This may include the coating for polarized properties, protection from the light of the screens (Blue-Light) or extra durability.

After the initial materials gathered have been cut to the desired shape of the frame, divided into the front part and the arms, they are joined with the special screws that firmly hold the arms to the front part.
