  • Patent number: 10042185
    Abstract: The present invention is to provide a full-frame adhesive anti-fog film structure, comprising: an anti-fog film, which has a front side and a back side opposing the front side; and an adhesive, which is disposed at an edge of the back side and arranged along the edge so as to be frame-shaped. The anti-fog film of the present invention is attachable to a planar, cylindrical or spherical lens through the full frame-shaped adhesive so that not only can the anti-fog film be fully attached to the lens but the full attachment of film also prevents bubbles from forming between the two attached surfaces. Also, an airtight space is formed between the full-frame adhesive anti-fog film structure and the lens to stop heat transfer and prevent fog from being formed, so as to not only provide good vision to users but also reduce the chance that the user will fall prey to an accident if the user's view is blocked.

  • Patent number: 8297749
    Abstract: A glasses construction includes an auxiliary frame coupled with optical lenses and disposed as needed behind the middle portion of a glasses frame coupled with lenses; and a protective frame disposed behind and snap-engaged with the glasses frame. The glasses frame and the protective frame together limit the position of the auxiliary frame. Two connecting elements, pivotally disposed on two sides of the glasses frame, respectively, are snap-engaged with connecting members extending from the ends of two temples and stopping portions formed beside the connecting members to thereby form a glasses construction. Hence, the combination or separation between the glasses frame and the protective frame, between the glasses frame and the auxiliary frame, or between the two connecting elements pivotally disposed on two sides of the glasses frame and the temples is advantageously characterized by quick positioning or removal by convenient operation.
