If it’s broken, fix it! The opticians at Ewing Optical have the experience and skills needed to repair just about any part of your eyeglasses, whether it’s a broken frame, a missing nose pad, broken hinges or missing screws.
Plastic frames come in all types of quality and durability. The higher the quality of the eyewear, the less flexible, as they tend to hold their shape without getting stretched too much. Whereas, lesser quality plastic eyeglass frames have a tendency to get out of shape. You might wear them for a very short period of time yet, it ends up feeling like elastic. You may be able to fix it on your own but it takes years of experience to make sure the right amount of heat is used at the right time and place so the frame and lens do not crack, or lose its shape completely.
Adjusting Metal Frames
Metal eyeglass repair is much easier than adjusting and repairing plastic eyewear but still requires skilled hands to fix. The first step starts with knowing the metal, as metal eyewear frames come in a wide range and have different qualities and properties from one another. Their properties and qualities depend on the type of metal they are. For example, titanium frames should be adjusted differently than those made of nickel coated steel. By using proper knowledge of the metals and their properties and the proper tools to fix them, we then mold the metal frames back to shape. You should never try this on your own as you might end up breaking the frame or the lenses might get scratched or even broken in the process.
