If you spend a lot of time playing ball games with your friends, you may already know that your eyeglasses are vulnerable to scratch and shatter. That is why you need lenses made of soft plastics like polycarbonate that can absorb impact without fracturing.


Regular glasses are fragile. Impact is going to cause it to crack or completely shatter. Glasses with polycarbonate lenses are flexible but at the same time, it contains a coating that makes it hard and sturdy.

Polycarbonate lenses are also thin and light which is perfect for when you run. It offers protection from ultraviolet rays. Polycarbonate comes in a very reasonable price and we have it here at Daniel Walters.

Frames are responsible for holding your lenses so you need it to be in the right shape and of the best quality. These are very important factors to achieve comfort and style. Opt for frames with subtle nose pads that will hold your glasses in place. Temples with inward curves will perfectly fit any face shape. With a comfortable grip, it will reduce the chances of the glasses falling off which is perfect if you’re a person that moves a lot.
