How to Tighten My glasses

 

Specsavers

If you've worn glasses for a while, you’ve likely experienced that over time, they can begin to slip off of your face. If your glasses are feeling loose, it can be highly annoying to keep pushing them back up again. They can also end up looking crooked and not sit well on your face, affecting your line of sight.

This can be due to a few things:

If your glasses prescription is even slightly wrong, it can cause several side effects such as:

  • The nose pads moving out of place
  • The screws on the glasses becoming too loose
  • The temple arms of your glasses moving out of place

We highly advise that you visit an optician and ask them to adjust your prescription glasses for you. If you go to your regular optician, they will usually do this for free, or for a very small fee. If for any reason you cannot reach your optician, here is our short guide on how to adjust your glasses yourself.

How to adjust your glasses at home

In just a few simple steps, you can adjust your pair of glasses to stay functional, as well as ensuring they feel the most comfortable.

Adjusting the arms

The temple arms may become crooked and bent over time, often tilting to one side. Lay your eyeglasses upside down on a flat surface. Both of the temple arms should rest evenly without looking bent. If they do not, you will need to adjust them.

Hold the frame and lightly bend the arms back into place if they are wire frames. Plastic frames with thick temple arms may need to be heated to adjust; we do not recommend trying this at home. You should seek the assistance of your optician.

Adjusting the nose pads

Nose pads or nose pieces are a common feature on glasses, they are designed for added comfort, but as they are adjustable, over time, can move out of place. If your nose pads are out of place, simply tilt them back into a position that sit most comfortable on your nose, they should slip back into position when you move them.

Tighten the screws

On the inner section of the temples (where the eyeglass frames and arms meet) you will usually find incredibly small screws. Tighten the screws using a mini screwdriver. Our Feel Good Handy Kit is perfect for tightening screws on your glasses.

Make the adjustments minor

Avoid making large adjustments to your glasses at once. This could make the problem worse and more difficult to correct. As always, it is best to visit your opticians to have a full adjustment of your glasses.

Protect your glasses from the start

If you make sure to protect your glasses from the start, there is less likelihood of damage occurring. When your glasses are not in use, remember to keep them in the case they were sold with.

The hard body of the case will protect your glasses from getting crushed, becoming lose and changing shape. It will also protect them from scratching.

Also remember to regularly clean your glasses with a micro cloth and cleaning spray to reduce the build-up of dirt and debris and ensure you have clear vision all day. Our Feel Good Cleaning Kit will fit into your handbag or pocket.
