Hypoallergenic Nickel Free Glasses Frames
Vitality Optical Care in Edinburgh is now offering Metal Hypo-Allergenic Nickel free glasses frames. These frames offer strength, durability and fashion for individuals who have a metal or Nickel allergy and require a non-reactive frame.
Nickel allergy is the one of the most common causes for contact dermatitis, with 10-12% of the female population, and 6% of the male population thought to take allergic reactions to the metal. A nickel allergy can affect people of all ages and backgrounds, and normally develops after repeated or prolonged contact with items containing nickel. The allergy is most commonly associated with jewelry and body piercings but nickel is present in many everyday items such as buttons, zips, coins and paperclips.
Hypoallergenic metal frames have the sophisticated, sleek style of a regular metal frame without any irritation for metal/nickel allergy sufferers. Hypoallergenic nickel free ranges are available in brands such as Oakley and Ray-ban.
