There is a variety of suitable eyeglass options for people with contact allergies. Wearing comfort and tolerance to the materials take top priority in the selection of the correct glasses. People with allergies in particular should look for low-allergen materials.
Glasses made of high-quality cellulose acetate are a good choice for people with metal allergies. This bioplastic material is made of cotton and is generally harmless. All Lunor acetate eyeglasses are handcrafted from premium cellulose acetate and are ideal for people with metal allergies.
For people with allergies who are sensitive to nickel, eyeglass frames made of titanium are an ideal option. Titanium is anti-allergenic and light, but yet stable. Lunor offers a large selection of titanium frames.
Stainless steel is considered to be well tolerated by the skin and is used in our Lumag factory.
The critical factor is the electroplating, i.e. the surface coating of glasses. Allergen-free materials like gold or palladium should be used for this. All eyeglass frames from Lunor are electroplated without the use of nickel. Our stainless steel frames are additionally sealed with a protective coating.
All metal frames from Lunor are fitted with the original Lunor titanium nose pads. They do not tarnish, they do not discolor and they are usually well suited for people with allergies.
It is advisable to contact an experienced optician when choosing the correct glasses for people with allergies. They can offer individual consultation and select the appropriate glasses, taking individual allergies into consideration.
