Rimless eyeglasses are even more likely to break because they are more fragile. Unlike regular eyeglasses, rimless frames have little hard material to protect them.
Most rimless glasses hold their lenses with monofilament line, a thin wire that is also used for fishing. Sometimes this breaks, or the lens just falls out of it.
It’s a tricky task to put it back in, so here are some tips on how to do it.
CHANGING THE RIMLESS EYEGLASSES THREAD
For a variety of reasons, you will want at some point to change your thread. You need a standard fishing line, a pair of scissors and some patience.
Start by inserting the wire through the small holes that the eyeglasses have near the bridge.
Thread it in and out near the bridge and then repeat the same process on the other side, near the temple.
Once you have the thread locked in, it’s time to put the lens. Insert it into the frame and place the wire onto the built-in groove.
Tighten the wire so that it holds the lens perfectly and then trim what’s left of it.
REINSERTING THE LENSES ON RIMLESS GLASSES
Never try to force it back in. You will most likely fail and end up damaging the lens or the frame. The best way to go about it is to cut the wire altogether and replace it with a new one.
Use the same process as if you would replace the wire. The lens fell because the wire was not tight enough, or pressure was applied to it. To avoid glasses lenses popping out, tighten the wire on a regular basis.
