Titanium glasses have been around since the 1980s so they're not new at all. But recently, they seem to have become quite the trend in eyewear fashion. And when you think about it, it's not really surprising because titanium does have a lot of outstanding qualities that make it the ideal material for glasses, both for men and women.
To answer this question, let us take a look at the characteristics of titanium. For starters, it is one of the most lightweight metals around, and is also flexible and resilient at the same time. This combination of traits makes it a highly suitable material for glasses. It can be easily shaped into the simplest to the most intricate designs.
One of the biggest advantages of titanium glasses is their inherent strength and lightweight. It can be extremely uncomfortable to wear glasses that weigh too heavily on your ears and your head, especially if you need to use them the whole day. It can even lead to severe headaches. Titanium glasses eliminate this problem completely. Because of its strength, it can be stretched very thinly, creating dainty frames that are even more lightweight, without compromising durability and resilience.
Another significant advantage of titanium glasses is that they are resistant to corrosion. Exposure to moisture does not affect these glasses so you don’t have to worry if you sweat a lot or if you live in a humid area. You can even wear them at the beach and they won’t be affected even when splashed on by salty seawater.
As for the disadvantages, the only one that comes to mind is the cost. Titanium is quite a costly metal to extract, which makes titanium glasses considerably more expensive than glasses made of other materials.
However, you do have to consider that titanium glasses will likely last much longer. Studies show that with proper care, titanium glasses can stay in excellent condition for up to ten years. Most regular glasses, on the other hand, will need to be changed after two or three years as they will have succumbed to wear and tear by then.
