Got a Screw Loose?
There’s never a good time to lose a screw from your glasses – especially if you’re living under lockdown. It’s the kind of thing that happens when you’re already running late, or it’s raining, or you’re presenting to the boss at work.
Without your glasses, you’ll suddenly feel less connected to the world, and everyday tasks can become a lot more challenging. The good news is that even if you can’t get to your nearest Vision Works store for professional repairs, there are temporary repairs you can do yourself. Check out our handy D-eye-Y hacks for holding things together for the time being.
Just one note of caution, please remember that your glasses and lenses are precision made to match your prescription and sense of style, so do be careful with them!
Raid Your Toolkit
If you see where the screw falls, you can replace it yourself if you have a screw- driver of the right size – a jeweller’s toolkit is probably your best bet. It’s worth investing in one of these so that you can periodically tighten the screws on your glasses, so they’re less likely to fall out. Don’t use a screw from a different pair of glasses – if it’s a different size, it will damage the thread.
