Repair Tips for Fixing Those Broken Eyeglass Frames

Jan 8th 2015 at 11:42 PM

I know I'm lucky to have. I think that everyone who wears or has worn glasses, has gone through that. Let's face it, sooner or later our eyeglasses will break and we will need to repair them.

It's so frustrating sometimes that you just want to throw them as far as you can. Even the most expensive, well built designs don't survive the simplest of accidents. While fixing them may be annoying and frustrating, it is still pretty easy. All it takes is an inexpensive eyeglass repair kit, and you can perform minor repairs on eyeglass frames. Here are a few simple to follow steps for you the next time you are stuck fixing your eyeglasses yourself:

Before you can fix what's wrong you need figure out what's wrong. I recommend using a nice magnifying glass to try and find the problem which is in need of repair. Most of the time, the problem is small and difficult to see such as a loose or missing screw or a broken hinge on an arm.

Ok, let's say you found the issue and it's a stretched out hinge. To repair this, you first will get a pair of needle nose pliers and cover the tips of it to bend the hinge gently back into place. Covering the tips of the pliers prevents the lenses and frame from becoming scratched or damaged. A very small rubber band or rubber ring, found in many eyeglass repair kits, can also hold a loose hinge in place.

Perhaps a screw is loose on your eyeglass frame. This is fixed by tightening the screw with one of those tiny screwdrivers that come in eyeglass repair kits. If you can't get your hands on one of these screwdrivers, you can get away with using the tip of a paring knife to serve the same purpose. After you have tightened the screw up in the frame, I find that dabbing a little clear nail polish on the hinge screw will hold it firmly in place. Remember to let the polish dry before putting the glasses back on.

Let's say not only is the screw loose but it is now lost. Buy an eyeglass repair kit and replace the screw with one of the screws found in the kit. Miniature safety pins can also work by slipping into the screw hole and closing the pin. Never force the screw into the hole if it won't fit. The last thing you want to do is strip the threads.

Often times with some eyeglasses the metal hinge will break from the frame. To repair this, you'll wash both surfaces and then try to scrape as much paint or glue away. Then using a toothpick, lightly dab on some fast-bonding glue to the break. Be sure to keep the two pieces held together for about a minute or two so the glue can dry and set.

One final problem with eyeglass is the ear-piece slipping off the frame. Simply, re-adhere it back on with fast-bonding glue.
