The”> first thing to do is to ensure that all points of contact are tight and firmly connected so check each screw to make certain that it is tight. This will ensure that any further adjustments not only work correctly, but also stay in place for a reasonable amount of time. The usual symptom of having a screw loose is that the sides of the frame become loose and floppy on your face so that is always a good place to start.All frames have some metal running down the centre of them, and it is this that needs to be bent back into shape thats one of its purposes ! The difficulty is that the metal is often coated or surrounded n plastic or acetate that is prone to cracking or breaking when bent.In the case of metal frames, the glasses can be made to sit higher or lower on the face by adjusting the nosepads inwards or outwards. Again, take care and do each one alternatively and incrementally so that you can measure the result from each tweak and adjust accordingly. Plastic frames generally do not have nosepads.

If the glasses are sitting on your face comfortably, but are not straight or level on your face, it is likely that one side is bent up or down relative to the other side. To best remedy this, firmly grasp at the hinge and then gently bend. Be careful however, as considerable force is sometimes required, and this is a natural weak point in spectacles, and so they can break here quite easily. Be firm with positive force rather than quick jerky movements.
