Instructions

  1. 1

    Lay a towel over a firm, flat surface and set your Oakley sunglasses upside down upon it.

  2. 2

    Take your needle nose pliers and gently latch onto the nose piece that requires adjustment.

  3. 3

    Bend the nose piece slightly and carefully, then try the sunglasses on to test the fit. Repeat as needed.

  4. 4

    Adjust the screws on the nose piece if the pliers adjustment is not effective. Loosen or tighten the nose piece screws with an eyeglasses screwdriver to achieve the desired fit. With each adjustment, try the sunglasses on to gauge the fit and repeat the adjustment until the fit is satisfactory.

Tips and warnings

  • There is a danger in self repair of your sunglasses that you damage the eye wear and void your warranty. If this concerns you, take them to an eye care professional. Adjustments are usually done for free or a small charge.
