Some popular eyeglass frames catalogs are put out by Tura Eyewear, EyeglassWorld.com and Charmant. These catalogs feature frames for women, men, children and for specialized uses, such as sport or industrial activities.
Additional online sources for eyeglass frame catalogs are HIlco.com, FramesDirect.com and the websites for popular brick and mortar eyeglass stores, such as LensCrafters Eyemart Express and Eyeglass World.
Some eyeglass frame manufacturers, such as Charmant, make frames that are sold under a variety of labels, including Elle, Esprit, Puma, CFX, Aristar, Charmant Z, Line Art Charmant and Charmant Titanium Perfection. Styles range from classic designs for men, women and children to sports frames usable for skiing, golfing, running, playing soccer/football or motorsports. Most all frames shown in these catalogs can be used as standard eyeglasses, as frames for sunglasses and with transitional lenses, which change in color from light to dark as a wearer moves from indoors to out. On rare occasions, a user's prescription will make some frames unsuitable choices, due to the thickness of the required lenses.
Large eyeglass frame catalogs and dealers can be counted on to feature a variety of price ranges, construction materials and colors from which shoppers may choose. In addition, the catalogs are updated seasonally to take advantage of new frame construction techniques and materials, style trends and to drive repeated purchases.
