Glass engraving, a masterful technique
In our online shop you will find well-known brand glasses such as Gucci, Ray-Ban, Vogue and Police as well as high-quality corrective lenses from internationally known glass manufacturers such as Novacel and Omega Optix, both branches of Essilor. The world-famous brand name Essilor has been on the list of the best glass manufacturers for more than 50 years and is known for premium quality and best vision when it comes to varifocal and single vision lenses. Essilor is also at the forefront when it comes to instrumental machines that are used for edging. Since Visionet strives for the highest quality, the engraving is carried out with a special machine with innovative technology. A selected laser, which is also used for cutting the glass, enables precise and careful engraving in the upper area of the correction glass. Our experienced grinding experts have a perfect command of vice technology and thanks to the ultra-modern device, precise contrast setting, maximum flow and stability of the glass are guaranteed during the entire engraving process.
Glass engraving is recommended by opticians for several reasons. This technique enables you to have personalized and bespoke glasses. There are many patterns to choose from. You can choose a drawing that relates to your activity or passion. If you wish, you can also have your zodiac sign engraved. The engraving can also serve as a reminder so that you don't forget the date of your next appointment with your ophthalmologist. Whatever you choose, make sure you are getting quality work. Engraving glasses is a technique that requires mastered know-how. Eyewear specialists use powerful, state-of-the-art equipment. They ensure that every detail is clearly visible despite the small size of the engraved pattern. The engraving is discreetly on the upper part of the glasses, so there is no risk of obstructing your view.
Five reasons why you should consider custom glasses:
1.Unique through your personal engraving
A love message, a Buddha quote, or the name of your grandma engraved on a coffee cup. Whether you are looking for a personal gift for friends and family or just an accessory for yourself ... Personalized items are all the rage. At Visionet it is also possible to personalize your glasses because every wearer of glasses is as individual as their correction. Add a personal touch to your glasses and stand out from everyone else - with our discreet engraving, which corresponds to your wishes and taste, you can transform your glasses into an extraordinary accessory.
You can choose from any fonts such as Arial, Courgette, Open sans etc. As well as various patterns and designs such as hearts, stars, golf clubs, notes, Eiffel Tower and much more. ..Also the name of your loved one, your initials, your logo or your own first name can be engraved in your glasses as you wish. Many people also prefer to have their zodiac sign on their glasses or an important date. The engraving is small and is located on the top near the temple so as not to obstruct your vision when wearing your prescription glasses.
In public places, at work in the office, or while studying, it is very likely that two or more people will wear similar, if not the same, glasses. Despite a large selection of frames, it can happen to meet a person who has decided on an identical frame. Identical versions can quickly lead to confusion. Engraving is an effective sign of distinction and helps avoid misunderstandings. Just check the engraving pattern on your lenses to make sure it is your frame. Remember that these personal accessories are specifically designed to correct your eyesight or solve an ophthalmic problem. It is therefore important that you do not exchange your glasses with someone else's. Wearing models that are not intended for you can cause major problems. It could worsen vision problems or cause headaches, not to mention other illnesses due to germs and bacteria that can be on the glasses.
2. If you lose your glasses
Have you lost your glasses and now you don't know what to do next? Perhaps you are now going to the lost property office, searching the Internet or posting a letter at the bakery? There are endless ways to find your glasses, provided you remember the exact model, color and brand. In most cases you do not remember exactly which model it was and that makes it more difficult for the lost property office or special search services to find the frame. An engraving makes it easier to distinguish it from other models and can help to locate the article more quickly.
Engraving is also an effective method against theft in order to increase the recognition value.
3. To mark your glasses
Wearing glasses has always been a trend. Whether as a fashion accessory or as a visual aid - for some wearers, glasses frames are indispensable and part of their everyday wardrobe. Celebrities also rely on unique glasses to improve their look - as does Brad Pitt. His aviator sunglasses by Ray-Ban, which he wore in Mister and Miss Smith, are particularly memorable. If you are also like Brand Pitt, and are not just a glasses lover but a collector, and already have several models in all shapes, colors and brands, an engraving can help you find the right glasses for the perfect occasion within seconds. Even with wearers who have several visual aids, for example for reading, for distance vision and for the computer, no labeling is advantageous. You can recognize the glasses you are looking for at a glance.
4. Engraving: A motivation for children
More and more children have to wear glasses from an early age. The reason: television, pads, cell phones, video games, etc ... Our children's lives are dominated by screens and animations, which leads to eye strain and myopia. Nowadays, an increasing number of children need glasses to correct their nearsightedness. The reason why there is an increased number is that the eyes are too close to the device, which makes the eyeball longer. Some children like to delay or even refuse to wear glasses and the parents face major challenges. The patterns engraved on the glasses are an excellent motivation and allow them to stand out from other children and have something personal that they have chosen themselves
5. Fun glasses
Whether for carnival, in the office, at parties or on the beach, personalized glasses bring fun to everyday life. Now you can design your glasses with a nice message, your initials, the name of your cat or just a Japanese character. The engraving is as individual as you are and gives a glimpse of your personality. Fun factor guaranteed.
