How to Straighten Glasses | Adjust Glasses at Home
adjusting kids glasses
We balance every kids eyeglass frame before shipping them out but sometimes the temple arms can bow out slightly due to either the shape of the prescription lenses (as some tend to flatten out the frame) or due to the frames shipping snug in their case. Learn how to adjust glasses arms and frames below.
There are two easy ways to adjust glasses at home to ensure a snug fit on your child's face :
1. Use our adjustable temple arms. This is the quickest and easiest fix for frames that slide down little noses as it helps to hold the frame on your child's face. You can see how to adjust the temple arms on our kids glasses here.
2. You can use a hairdryer to heat up the bridge of the the glasses and straighten out the "bowing" temple arms. Follow the steps below to learn how to straighten glasses using this method.
- First, use a hair dryer to heat up the bridge of the glasses. Set the hair dryer on a low heat setting and hold it about 5 inches away from the frame for about 15 seconds (so you don't run the risk of melting the frame).
Second, Bend the bridge of the frame slowly and gently to straighten out the temple arms
Third, Run cold water on the bridge to reset the acetate in the new position.
