A study by Ngee Ann Polytechnic (Singapore) based on survey of 30 student volunteers doing 20 minutes of physical activities found that eyeglass frames with Beta-Simplicity Anchor Tips are statistically more comfortable and effective than the same frames with conventional temple tip.

Q. Would it hurt the ears like cable temple glasses?
A. No. The curvature of the cable temple compresses your ears and this will cause soreness. Moreover, the material of the cable temple is generally too hard compared to your ears. While there are designs to make the cable temple softer, it is generally still too hard for most people and any softer the cable temple will not be able to secure your glasses. Our anchor tip is a unique design that combines soft rubber with a wedge profile to ensure that it is gentle to your ears.
A. Our rubber is made of high quality elastomer which is resistant to high temperature and does not degrade when exposed to sunlight. The rubberize temple tip is replaceable if it gets worn out after many years of usage.
Q. Is it safe to wash the glasses with soap?
A. Yes. Mild soap for washing the lens and removing facial oil from the glasses will not degrade its material including the rubber tip.
Q. Are your anchor tips replaceable?
A. Yes. Just approach any of our authorized dealers for replacements or drop us an email and we will guide you.
