Carefree, sunny, with a minimum of cumbersome restraints ... sounds like a fun-filled trip to Rio de Janeiro. Perhaps these images and descriptions are how the Rio eyeglass frame got it's name.
The Rio frame is light on material and impact due to the drill-mount construction. Most full frames have either metal or plastic completely surrounding the lenses and semi-rimless frames have a filament holding the bottom of the lens. The Rio is a fine example of the most unobtrusive frame of all. This drill-mounted frame is exactly as it sounds -- no frame at all, making it nearly disappear into the face. The tiny holes drilled directly into the rectangular lens material offer maximum viewing area with minimum frame material. The slim and strong bridge piece supports adjustable nose pads, while the temple pieces provide firm durable
side support and just the correct style quotient for both men and women.
Color choices range from brown with amber ribbon detail in the temple material, and gold with plum ribbon detail. The gunmetal hue has a fascinating smoke tone grid pattern incorporated into the temples. Maximum practicality with minimum intrusion are the hallmarks of the Rio eyeglass frame.
