Optical Frame Testing


PEL Assures Your Frames’ Comfort, Quality, and Safety

Optical frames are a common optical product that PEL work with regularly. We offer comprehensive optical frame testing that help to avoid quality, compliance, and health issues. Frame quality affects consumers in several different ways, and therefore has a strong impact on your brand. For example, the deformation of frames causes a mismatch between lenses and the frames, leading to imperfect vision for the wearer.

If frames are not made from safe materials, they may emit harmful substances, such as heavy metals, negatively affecting the wearer’s health. Finally, if their design is poor, they will not be comfortable or could break easily, and this will disappoint consumers.

PEL’s goal is to eradicate these issues for you.
