How Are Sunglasses Made

We pour in some dedication, a few innovative ideas, thorough market research, loads of effort, and voila here we are, with a pair of sunglasses ready to wear. Though it’s easier said than done, these are honestly the ingredients for a classy yet elegant pair of sunglasses.


Why Do You Need a Pair of Sunglasses?

The answer to this question is pretty simple; to protect your eyes from overexposure to harmful radiations like UV rays. A pair of finely manufactured sunglasses will keep you from the harm of glare and bright light.

Raw Materials for Sunglasses

A frame and a pair of light-filtering lenses are the raw materials for sunglasses. These lenses can in turn be made of different materials ranging from colorized plastic and polycarbonate to glass. Brands providing quality to their consumers incorporate high-quality glass whereas the larger population goes for tinted lenses to help minimize the glare. Poorly tinted lenses make it difficult for you to discriminate between the colors. A similar problem also arises with lenses that are colored darkly than usual. Blue and purple shades make this problem stand out even more. Favorable shades to wipe out the ambiguity are grey, brown, and amber. Coming down to frames; these are either made of plastic or metal. Metal frames are an indication of an expensive pair of sunglasses as compared to those with plastic frames.

The Manufacturing Process

  • Step 1: First thing first, a colorant is added to the lens. It can be done by two methods. It can be done by either adding color to the molten lens or color is added after the lens is made.
  • Step 2: After adding additives, the lens is shaped into a proper mold.
  • Step 3: A curve generator then works on the lens. It trims off the edges to make it properly fit into the frames.
  • Step 4: The lenses are now coated with an anti-reflective material.
  • Step 5: Now, as these lenses are prepped, they are fixed into the frames. Frames are designed to hold these prepped lenses in place.
  • Step 6: Metal frames hold the lenses in place by being worked into screw mount designs.
