Curly Cable Temples
Curly cable temples have been around since temples were first fitted to eyeglasses in the 18th century, this truly vintage style is now available in a superb collection of good quality and very affordable round eyeglasses and sunglasses. Practical and functional as well as very stylish, the self-adjusting coiled temples will keep your glasses snug and comfortable on your face so they don’t slip down your nose as ordinary frames often do. Because they hold your glasses securely in place they’re great for many activities such as horse riding, rowing, golf, tennis, walking, jogging, etc. Over time they will adapt themselves to suit your head shape so they become more comfortable in extended usage, the spring coil that forms the cable temple holds its shape so they retain their antique look.
This perfectly round eyewear comes in two sizes, a regular medium to large (ML) fit which takes the standard 45mm (1¾") diameter lenses and a medium (M) fit which takes the smaller 42mm (1⅝") diameter lenses. The superior quality screwed optical frames are made from premium-grade materials with high tension spring temples, they're light in weight yet very durable and are extremely comfortable to wear. They're supplied ready to wear with plain clear lenses (non-prescription) which have full UV protection so you can wear them as a fashion statement even if you don't need prescription glasses, or just take them to your opticians and have your own prescription lenses fitted. They’re also available as ready to wear round reading glasses with eight lens powers from +1.0 dioptre up to +3.0 dioptre and as sunglasses, see below.
