How to Fix Your Broken Sunglasses

There is nothing worse than when your favorite sunglasses break or don't fit properly anymore. It happens to the best of us, but don’t worry, you can fix your sunglasses at home with either of these simple options: 


1. Screw Tightening

If your sunglasses don't fit properly, it can help to tighten the screws that hold the top and bottom part of the frame firmly around the lenses on your sunnies, using an optical screwdriver which you can purchase online from The Sunglass Fix. We recommend doing this periodically, as these can loosen over time.


2. Arm Adjustment

To adjust the arms on a pair of plastic frames, you’ll need to soften the plastic, which means heating it up. We don’t want you to ruin your expensive frames, so we suggest taking them to an eye care professional. Or if the sunnies aren’t too valuable, perhaps just say goodbye.

Metal frames are much easier to fix than plastic. For these guys, all you need is a flat surface, soft cloth, and pliers. With a soft cloth on the frames, clamp the pliers over the cloth near the bend and make small adjustments, bending the arm back into place. To test your frames, just lay them upside down on a flat surface, and make adjustments until they lay flat.


3. Lens Cleanse

Sometimes a smudge or a little line on your lens can be removed with a simple clean. Just get some soap and water on the lens, give it a dry and a nice polish with cloth, and you’ll see the world much more clearly!


4. Buy Replacement Lenses

If your sunglass lenses are scratched or broken, you can replace them with new HD quality lenses. You can find over 100,000 sunglass lens models in thirteen different colours at Sunglass Fix, Australia’s industry leader in customized and replacement lenses.
