Sometimes customers will want a frame with a flexible fit. One of the ways this can be provided is with spring hinges on the temple arms, which are placed where the hinges that connect the temple arms with the front rims meet on the inside of the front of the frame.
Spring hinges can be useful, as they expand the fit of the temple arms, so that they are not as tight on the wearer’s temples and over their ears as temple arms without spring hinges.
Frames that have spring hinges on the temple arms have hinges that are lengthier than non-spring hinge temple arms, extending to approximately one half-inch along the temple arm.
Spring hinges are especially great for kids who may need the extra flexibility in their glasses.
