Rimless Glasses -The Invisible Trend

Rimless Glasses -The Invisible Trend

Are you intimidated by the prospect of wearing thick glasses and limelight-grabbing frames? Does the weight of eyeglasses make you feel uncomfortable? If yes, then rimless glasses are something that you should consider. These invisible glasses are the perfect accessories for people who love to blend in the crowd and are looking for a pair of frames that do not sit prominently on the face.

The Riveting History of Rimless Glasses

To the untrained eye, rimless invisible glasses may seem like the ‘underdog’ of the eyewear world, but they, in fact, have a long, rich, and fascinating history. The first template of rimless eyeglasses was devised in the 1820s by Austrian inventor - Johann Friedrich Voigtlander - who wanted to promote a minimalist monocle that was as ‘inconspicuous’ as possible and also incredibly lightweight.

Well, Voigtlander was successful in his venture, and by the 1880s, rimless glasses had gained unprecedented popularity and mainstream appeal. The rage of rimless glasses continued from the 1880s until into the 1960s, and then regained their stature in the latter part of the 20th century and early 21st century.

During the 20th and 21st centuries, rimless invisible eyeglasses were popularised by the likes of eminent figures like Steve Jobs and Richard Gere. The Apple Inc. founder, in fact. Wore circular rimless glasses for 18 years from 1993 until his death in 2011.

Besides, what is most interesting is that Steve Jobs popularised rimless eyewear to such an extent that the manufacturer of his glasses - Robert Marc - had a long list of clients waiting for him to design and create the same glasses for them. In fact, people’s fixation went to such an extent that the original manufacturers of Steve Job’s glasses had to put consumers on a three-month long waiting list.
