  1. 1

    Locate the small screws on each side of the eyepiece, on the sunglasses.

  2. 2

    Using the small screwdriver, tighten the screws. Turn the screw right to tighten and left to loosen.

  3. 3

    Try the sunglasses on. If they still feel loose, repeat step number two until the glasses feel comfortable on your face.

  4. 4

    Do not over tighten the screws as this will strip them and then the glasses will remain perpetually loose.

Tips and warnings

  • If you don't have a screwdriver that fits the screws, you can purchase an eyeglass repair kit at a drugstore for a few dollars.
  • Be gentle when taking sunglasses off. Grabbing them off your face forcefully can cause undue tension on the glasses, causing them to become loose.
