How to Adjust Eyeglasses to Fit Comfortably on the Ears

Updated April 17, 2017

New eyeglasses are not always adjusted properly to fit around the ears. After wearing a new pair of glasses, you may discover that they are uncomfortable or ill-fitting. A trip back to the eye doctor is unnecessary because uou can adjust the new frames yourself at home.

Grip the frame just before the curve in the glasses at the ear piece.

Take your other hand, and grip just the other side of the curve at the end of the ear piece.

Place your thumb in the curve, and apply pressure to the end piece of the frame.

Straighten or bend the frames at the curve to make necessary adjustments for a proper fit.

If this does not correct the problem, readjust to your comfort.


Do not bend and straighten often, or you may risk damaging the frames.
