Far too often I repair and readjust frames for patients who bought them on a whim online or from a chain store masquerading as a quality eyewear specialist (you know who, they've been popping up everywhere!). It's more than understandable - the prices can be presented as so low that the risk almost seems worth it. What they don't want you to know though is that their poor product can be so dire that you are lead back to qualified opticians to fix the damage.
I like to compare it to buying a good pair of socks. They all look the same right? But we sure know the true quality of them once those holes start developing on the toe ends! The same applies to glasses. A frame should always hold its shape and form. The main reason you will find that budget frames do not hold their form is that they use a very cheap acetate. When acetate is not cured for a long period we find undesired levels of elasticity. Elasticity means that the frame will bend and bend... until you are left with the familiar issue of them falling down your nose when you least expect it. The other reason you will find they do not hold their form is because they are mass-produced in China. Yikes!
