A closer look at your frame
The most common breakages occur where the bridge meets the rim, where the pad arm meets the rim, and at the joint (the hinge which attaches the arm to the lug).

Glasses repair – what we can repair for you
We can repair most types of spectacle frame. If you have a plastic frame with a snapped bridge or a metal frame with a broken nose pad, we can repair your glasses frame. We can also offer titanium spectacle frame repairs.
Some of the following information may sound like jargon, but it will help you choose the frame repair/restoration package you require.
You will need this If you have a metal frame and it has snapped at any point i.e. the side/arm has come away from the frame or snapped at the bridge etc.
Exactly the same as a solder, but titanium frames have to be welded. If you are unsure whether your frame is titanium, order as a normal solder and we will inform you if it is titanium when we receive your frame.
Frame straightening and realignment
If your frame is distorted but has not snapped, usually when they’ve been sat on, then this is what you will need.
The little plastic or silicone parts that sit on your nose. Pads can be lost or just wear out and it is a quick fix to replace these. If the metal arm (pad arm) that holds the pad in place has broken away too, you will need to choose a package with a solder option. Don’t worry if you have lost any pad arm parts, we replace them as part of the solder repair.
Replacement glasses arms (Side arms)
If you have snapped one of the arms on your glasses we can replace the arms (supplied as a pair) to the nearest match.
This is not to be confused with a broken hinge/joint.
If your side/arm has broken at the joint we can repair this. There are a number of different ways in which we repair hinges depending on if it is a sunken/hidden hinge, sprung hinge or a standard conventional hinge. They are all the same price to fix and all replacement hinges ensure the side arms will open and close as normal.
If your lens keeps falling out, your screws may have become loose. The screw(s) may have been lost altogether and you have now been left with a lens that has fallen out of your frame. We can rectify this. Choose a package with replacement screws, our Custom Package will be the best value if this is all you need, and then send your frame and loose lens(es) to us and we will secure the screws, fix the barrel if necessary and apply a small amount of fixing solution to prevent them coming loose in the future. If your lenses are loose and we find it is not the screws causing it, and that the lenses are actually slightly to small for the frame, we will apply a small amount of packing to the rims instead of replacing the screws. This is the only way to fix a loose lens which is too small for the frame.
Plastic frame looking a bit tired and dull? Choose this option and it will look like new!!
This is for cleaning metal frames where debris has collected around the edges of lenses and nose pads.
These are the plastic bits on a metal frame that sit on your ears. These can crack over time and replacing them to give some life back to a tired looking spectacle frame. We will replace your end tips with the closest match possible.
