How To Adjust Your Eyeglasses?

Whether you just get your new glasses or have worn them for a long time, the frames may pinch your nose, slide out of place or simply appear crooked. Except for taking them to an optometrist for an adjustment, you can do it yourself by following these instructions.

Stand in front of a mirror and look straight ahead, make sure that the middle of the lenses is level with the center of your eyes. Check for the fit and make some adjustments properly.

1. Your glasses are sitting too low on your nose
FOR WIREFRAME GLASSES

Use your thumbs to gently push the nose pads closer both sides until they fit comfortably.
FOR PLASTIC FRAME GLASSES

Run the earpieces under warm water (not boiling) for 30-60 seconds. Gently bend the earpieces slightly downwards to add curve.
2. Your glasses are sitting too high on your nose
FOR WIREFRAME GLASSES

 

Use your thumbs to gently push out on the nose pads both sides until they sit snugly on your nose.
FOR PLASTIC FRAME GLASSES

Run the earpieces under warm water (not boiling) for 30-60 seconds. Gently bend the earpieces upwards to relax the curve.
3. Your glasses look crooked or tilted heavily to one side
Lay your eyeglasses upside down on a flat surface to ensure both of the temple arms rest evenly. If not, you should level the temple arms or the earpieces.

FOR WIREFRAME GLASSES

Gently bend the arms or earpieces with small pliers or your bare hands.
FOR PLASTIC FRAME GLASSES

Carefully heat the higher arm with a hairdryer to make the plastic pliable. Slowly move the plastic downward with your hands until it is in the desired position.
Remember to make a small adjustment and be extra careful each time.
