Rimless and semi-rimless prescription glasses


Rimless and semi-rimless glasses are versatile and flattering for most face shapes. Lightweight and comfortable, rimless glasses are easy to wear. You can buy them online and save up to 30% on RRP.

What are rimless glasses?

Rimless glasses are special frames that have side arms, a bridge and ear pads but leave the lenses without an outer rim. Often considered a softer, more sophisticated look than standard rimmed frames, rimless glasses blend beautifully with any look and best suit heart shaped faces. Vision Direct has a fantastic wide range of both men's rimless glasses and women's rimless glasses for you to choose from.


What are semi-rimless glasses?

Still offering a subtle look, semi-rimless glasses are more durable. The frame shields the top half of the lenses and prevents them from being damaged, while leaving the bottom half free for a soft feel.

Semi-rimless prescription glasses are available in a wide variety of styles, shapes and colours, from semi-rimless cat eye glasses with extended temples to oversized square semi-rimless frames in bold colourways.

This style of frame best suits round faces, drawing focus away from the curves of your face to your brow and eyes.


Celebs who wear rimless glasses

Rimless and semi-rimless glasses are always popular with A-listers, fashionistas and bloggers alike due to their stylish, sophisticated look. Nicole Kidman is partial to a slender rimless frame with gold side arms, while Jonny Depp wears his tinted rimless frames a lot.

Ariana Grande has opted for a slender semi-rimless frame with contrast side arms and extended temple detailing, giving a subtle cat eye shape that's very flattering for her oval face.
