After extensive use or some impacts, the sunglass frame becomes so loose, too tight, or even crooked. To fix your sunglasses, you can do it yourself at home by following these easy steps.
1. Your metal sunglasses are crooked.
Place your glasses on the flat table and verify that temple tips touch the table. If there is a gap, that means your glasses are crooked. What you need to do is to bring down that part to compensate for the gap. One hand holds the temple, using your thumps from another hand to bend down slightly that temple tip and place your glasses back on the table to verify. Repeat the same until you achieve the balance. That means both temple tips sit evenly on the table.
2. Your metal sunglasses are too loose.
Bow the temple tips inwards to make them closer to each other to help your glasses more snug fit to your face.
3. Your metal sunglasses are too tight.
Bow the temple tips outwards to make them staying further apart to reduce side pressure to your head.
4. Your metal sunglasses sit too low or high on your nose.
In case your sunglasses sit too high, to bring glasses lower you can stretch out the nose pads further apart. Do reverse action in case your glasses sit too low.
Make sure to soak your sunglasses with hot water to ensure they are pliable enough to bend or adjust. You may use the hair dryer to heat areas that you want to bend..
1. Your plastic sunglasses are crooked.
- Place your sunglasses on the flat table so that the temple tips are up on the air, then use your finger to press down left and right temples to verify if both temples sit evenly on the table. If you hear a clicking sound that means that temple needs to bring down to touch the table. Hold the opposite lens with one hand, another hand bends the second lens counterclockwise to compensate for the gap.
- Reverse your glasses on the table so that the temple tips appear to touch the table. Find the gap and adjust the temple tips so that they are even on both sides.
2. Your plastic sunglasses are too loose.
Bow the temple tips inwards to make them closer - the same procedure for metal sunglasses. If your shades are still loose, that means your glasses stretched out too much. Use both your hands to hold both lenses and bend over so that both temples are parallel.
3. Your plastic sunglasses are too tight.
Bow the temple tips outwards to make them further apart - the same procedure for metal sunglasses. If your shades are still tight, that means your glasses curved too much. Use both your hands to hold both lenses and stretch out so that both temples are parallel.
