How to Adjust Rimless Eyeglasses

Rimless eyeglasses are a popular choice for those who need to wear eyeglasses but don’t like the extra bulk that rimmed eyeglasses add to their face. Rimless eyeglasses appear to float on the wearer’s face because they don’t have a rim to surround the clear frames. They are simply two clear frames connected by a thin nose piece and held on the side by wire temple pieces. Rimless eyeglasses can be difficult to adjust because their simple design makes them fragile and more prone to breaking when you attempt to twist or bend the nose piece and temple pieces.


Things You’ll Need:

1 Set the eyeglasses upside down on a flat surface and examine them for balance. One side may be higher than the other and require adjustment.

2 Grip the eyeglasses in both hands at the drill hole connection points where the lenses meet the temple pieces. There is a drill hole on each side of the eyeglasses; work with one at a time when making your adjustments.

3 Slowly and firmly apply pressure to the drill holes and temple piece, twisting slightly up or down to even the balance of your frames.

4 Grasp each side of the nose piece in your hands. Slowly pinch the nose piece together to make it tighter or pull it apart for a looser fit.

5 Tighten the screws at the nose piece and temple to hold the adjustment in place. You will need the small screwdriver that comes with eyeglass repair kits.

Tips & Warnings
Make your adjustments slowly and carefully because rimless eyeglasses are more prone to breaking than rimmed eyeglasses..
