Flexon eyeglasses brought a revolutionary technology to the eyewear marketplace--frames that can bend in almost any direction without snapping. This means the days of accidentally sitting on your glasses and snapping the frames in half are a thing of the past. The other aspect of Flexon glasses that is user-friendly is that the mechanics are exactly like any other pair of glasses. That means you can make repairs to your Flexon frames using a standard eyeglasses repair kit and other well-known repair tricks.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Inspect your frames with a magnifying glass. You may know what the problem is with your frames but you may find another issue you with close inspection. A loose screw that isn't causing any problems now may be a huge issue in just a few days.

  2. 2

    Use the screw driver in the eyeglasses kit to tighten or replace any missing screws. Don't worry if you have lost a screw from your frames. Repair kits come with spares.

  3. 3

    Use a pair of needle nose pliers to bend the frame back in shape. This is extremely unlikely with Flexon glasses but it is still a tactic you should know in case it happens. You need to cover the tips of the pliers with a soft material like a piece of paper towel to prevent damage to your frames.

  4. 4

    Use a toothpick and fast-drying, clear glue to fasten a broken hinge when it falls off. Apply a small dab of glue with a tooth pick onto the hinge and quickly place it on your glasses. Hold the hinge in place until the glue sets, and then replace any screws you may have lost.

  5. 5

    Apply fast-drying clear glue to refasten an ear piece that has fallen off the end of the frame. The ear piece is that soft covering on the part of the frame that wraps around your ears.
