Rimless eyeglasses are eyeglasses that have no frame going around the lens. Half rimless eyeglasses have a frame over the top part of the frame, and a line holding up the bottom part of the lens. Rimless eyeglass frames are the lightest type of all eyeglass frames because there is simply less frame material sitting on your face. A light, rimless eyeglasses frame is generally more comfortable, less noticeable, and it usually stays on better than a heavier frame. A rimless glasses frame hides the least amount of your face and your eyes, whereas other frame styles are designed to be seen and to cover up parts of your face.
Rimless glasses have been around for years, but there was a surge of interest in rimless glasses recently when Silhouette introduced the rimless Minimal Art collection. Silhouette rimless eyeglasse are the lightest, stiffest, and easiest to wear of all the rimless eyeglasses we have tested.
