With the vast array of frame materials available to optical dispensers, it can be difficult to stay on top of current trends. Today's choices go beyond simply "Metal" or "Plastic." Technological advances are constantly giving rise to new materials and new methods to manufacture them. Each substance has its own unique characteristics, with certain advantages and disadvantages. It's imperative to know each material's unique attributes in order to present, recommend, and handle them properly. Upon completing this course, the participant should be able to: understand the nature of frame materials; handle various frame materials with confidence; recommend the best frame materials for the patient.
