Choose rimless eyeglasses or sunglasses for a minimalist look that won’t focus attention on your frames. Because the bridge and temples of rimless frames attach directly to the lenses, rimless eyewear boasts a barely noticeable aesthetic and often gives the illusion that you are not wearing glasses at all. Browse rimless frames from Art-Craft, Oakley, Ray-Ban, and Maui Jim, and find classy, understated eyewear that won’t compete with your beautiful eyes.
Rimless eyeglasses and sunglasses do not have a frame of metal or plastic around the lens and instead feature a bridge and temples made from plastic, monel, titanium, acetate, or another durable material attached to the frameless lenses. The low profile makes rimless glasses almost unnoticeable over your eyes and allows them to serve their function without being an accessory. With an elevated, sophisticated aesthetic, rimless glasses make the perfect complement to professional or formal attire. FramesDirect offers an impressive array of rimless styles to suit any aesthetic, and there’s more to this less-is-more eyewear than fashion alone.
Unlike semi-rimless glasses or traditional full-rim frames, rimless eyeglasses offer a wider field of vision because there is no frame obstructing your peripheral view. They’re extremely lightweight, allow people to see more of your face, and are so comfortable you may even forget you're wearing glasses.
If you’re looking to fully embrace rimless fashion, a pair of rimless frames with flexible cable temples take the minimalistic style to the next level and stay in place no matter what. Or, if you are more adventurous with your style preferences, choose a pair of angular rimless sunglasses for an unexpected, avant-garde look.
Rimless eyeglasses and sunglasses look the best on people with oval or square faces. However, they come in such a wide variety of silhouettes, it is easy to discover a pair of rimless glasses to flatter any face shape. Choose a streamlined pair of rimless rectangular sunglasses to elevate your basic wardrobe, or vintage-inspired rimless cat-eye glasses to give your everyday, professional wardrobe a playful new look.
No. In most cases, rimless glasses are no easier to break than a pair of more commonly worn full-rim frames. When selecting rimless eyeglasses, choose the appropriate lens material. Lenses used in rimless eyewear must withstand drilling and are less likely to break, so a polycarbonate or a hi-index lens material is imperative. Avoid plastic lenses that can crack and break more easily than other lens materials.
Rimless glasses offer many benefits, including an understated look for people who desire their frames to look almost invisible over their features. Their barely-there construction is made of durable materials for a lightweight and comfortable fit, and the uncomplicated designs ensure that you can wear rimless glasses any time, with any attire.
