Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0005061A1] A method of manufacturing an eye (12, 14) having an integral side shield for use in a front eyewear frame (10) employing a pair of such eyes comprises the steps of providing a sheet of frame material (e.g., metal, plastic or composite) and cutting a stamping with a die having an outline which replicates the outline in the stamping. The outline has opposite side edges which extend in a non-parallel, curved manner to form a maximum width near the center portion of the stamping. In a preferred embodiment, a coining operation is performed on the stamping to create the groove for receiving the lens edge. The stamping is bent into a looped configuration with the lens edge in the groove, with the opposite end portions of the stamping secured together.
