On this day, glasses is an accessory that is no stranger to us. Today, I will introduce the structure, design and material of the frame parts to help you better understand the glasses!
1. Structure of eye glass frames
The frame has 7 main parts: The temple (1); Underwire (2), Nose tick (Nose cushions) (3), Ribbed (4), Bridge rim (5), Nose tick (6) & Glass pillow (7).
