Flexon eyeglass frames have two main benefits: they are extremely durable, and they return to their original shape when they are bent. Flexon is a titanium-nickel alloy that is also resistant to scratches and dents.
In 1961, scientists in the U.S. Navy were working on new types of missile heat shields. They discovered that they had created an alloy that returned to its original shape after they bent it or hit it with a hammer. Flexon was first patented in 1988.
As of 2015, recent Flexon releases include The Evolution Collection and The Icon Collection. Flexon is the top-selling ophthalmic brand in the United States.
