How to Fix Bent Glasses

How to Fix Bent Glasses

When you take your glasses off your face and put them on the side for rest or other work, then after a few minutes there is a "crunch" whether you're sitting on it, stepping on it, or accidentally dropping your glasses fall to the ground. Glasses are likely to be damaged because of this. But don't worry! Nor do you need to give them up right away. Read this blog and you will understand and learn how to fix bent glasses.

First, it is crucial to understand which repair is the right approach. It depends on what material your glasses are made of.

How to Repair a Bent Acetate Frame?

When repairing acetate frames, all you need is warm water or steam. As the acetate heats, it becomes pliable, allowing you to gently bend the frame into place. Here are the exact steps to follow:

Fill a bowl with warm water. Make sure the water temperature is not too hot. If it's too hot to touch, it's too hot for your acetate glasses. Alternatively, place your glasses in a bowl of warm water, place them under a running stream of hot water, and expose them to the warm environment for 30 seconds to 1 minute. Keep in mind that glasses will be especially fragile once heated sufficiently. Hold the glasses and use your thumb to make fine adjustments. Apply a little pressure at a time. Try them on or place them on a flat surface to evaluate the effect. If they still need some work, repeat the process one more time.

How to Repair a Bent Metal Frame?

To secure glasses with metal frames, you'll need two things: soft plastic pointed pliers and a thin cloth. Then, try the following steps:

Put a thin cloth over your glasses to prevent them from getting damaged. This can be a handkerchief or napkin.

Make sure the cloth is not wrinkled so you can see how the glasses bend under it.

Put the pliers on the curved part of the frame.

When adjusting the glasses, hold them firmly, but not too hard.

Try them on and see if they fit. If not, continue to straighten and align as needed.

How to Repair a Broken Plastic Frame?

The first step is to clean the broken surface of the spectacle frame. It is best to use a small file to grind two or three millimeters near the joint to enhance the bonding strength.

The second step is to remove the lens first, depending on the situation. Generally speaking, it is not recommended to remove the lens.

The third step: Squeeze 1 grain of soybean-sized glue onto the broken surface of the glasses frame, press gently for five minutes, and let it sit for about 30 minutes to complete the first bonding.

Finally, every time after the strength is fully reached, the exercise place is repeatedly bonded three to four times, and the bonding can be used.

Before you start

Make sure you're not in a hurry and be patient when it comes to fixing your bent glasses. If you try to force them back into shape, you may end up doing more harm than good. Therefore, keep the following points in mind when wearing glasses:

1. Be gentle and don't push too hard.

2. Do not apply too much pressure.

3. Avoid quick, uncontrolled movements.

Glasses maintenance tips

1. Rinse the glasses with warm water or cold water first, then use diluted detergent water or a small amount of detergent to clean the surface of the lens grease, then rinse with running water, and dry it gently with a special glasses cloth (no need to use it) wipe)

2. When wiping the glasses, you should use a special clean glasses cloth to wipe, avoid wiping with clothes and other fabrics, etc., which will cause dust to scratch the lenses.

3. When wearing and taking off glasses, keep both hands flat and take off glasses, otherwise, the uneven force on both sides of the frame will cause the frame to deform.

4. To temporarily place the glasses, please make the convex side of the glasses face up. If you place your glasses with the convex side down, you will grind the lenses. When folding glasses, please fold the left temple first, then the right temple.

5. Put the glasses in the glasses case when not in use, and be sure to take them off when you sleep.

6. Please avoid contact with corrosive items such as insect repellant, toilet cleaning supplies, cosmetics, hair spray, medicines, etc. during storage, otherwise, it will cause deterioration and discoloration of lenses and frames.

While there are many solutions for repairing broken eyeglass frames, it's often easier (and in some cases more affordable) to order new replacement parts. These little methods can be used in an emergency. So in the end, what I'm trying to say is, let's say your glasses are damaged so badly that you can't fix them yourself.
