The More Sensitive Side

We all may have a sensitive side, some more so than others. When it comes to sensitive skin issues, people with nickel or silicone allergies know all too well that certain eyeglass frames or nose pad materials can be extremely irritating.

Independent Eye Care offers a vast amount of frames manufactured in various material options. Stainless steel, titanium, flexible titanium, and memory metal are a few examples of alternative frames for our patients allergic to nickel. Additionally, plastic frames make a great option for those with multiple skin allergies, as they do not contain metal nor do they have silicone nose pads which can be another irritant.

We understand the importance of comfortable eye wear in all aspects, and take pride in offering a large variety of frames to accommodate all our patients.
