Question about Clothing Accessories

1 Answer

Is there any DIY methods to fixing scratches on sunglasses frame? I'm usually real careful with my belongings but I accidentally dropped my sunglasses today as I was walking the dog. Luckily the lenses are not scratched but the plastic frame did get scratched. If these glasses weren't so expensive I could care less but I'm sure this happens to a lot of people so I thought it wouldn't hurt to ask. Is there an easy way to fix these scratches? If so I need step by step directions and the compounds needed. Thanks in advance.

That is luckily the lenses are not scratched. We can polish the plastic by very fine sand-paper then by polishing wax. But we need to make sure the color of the plastic frame is not coated on the surface. It is because there 2 main way in plastic frame manufacting, injection moduling and plate lathe cut. the injection moduling usually color coated on the surface.

Tips for Choosing Good and cheap sunglasses.


<br />UV Protection<br />&bull;Make sure the sunglasses you choose will block at least 99 percent of the sun's ultraviolet (UV) rays. UV-blocking glasses protect the cells in your eyes from damage that can lead to cataracts or macular degeneration. If you purchase sunglasses that don't block UV rays effectively, you will be missing out on the most basic function of sunglasses: protecting your eyes. Even the cheapest plastic lenses often come with 99 percent or 100 percent UV protection, so check the label before you buy. <br />Lens Type<br />&bull;When browsing the sunglasses rack, keep in mind that some lenses are better than others. Inexpensive sunglasses are usually fitted with plastic lenses, which come in many varieties. For driving or outdoor sports, polarized lenses are best--they block reflected light from the road, snow or water. For general-use sunglasses, grey-tinted lenses are recommended because they absorb light evenly and provide clear and comfortable viewing. <br />Frames<br />&bull;Although you will not be paying much for your sunglasses, you will still want them to last more than a few days. Cheap sunglasses made with metal frames are often flimsy and break easily at the joints. A pair of shades with sturdy plastic frames are likely to last longer than metal-framed sunglasses. Plastic frames are also preferable because they will not rust when wet, take longer to sink if dropped in water, won't get hot if left in the sun and are easier to find at the bottom of a pool.

How to Repair Ray-Ban Sunglasses. ?Replace a lost or missing screw in your...


How to Repair Ray-Ban Sunglasses.<br />&bull;Replace a lost or missing screw in your Ray-Ban sunglasses with a small piece of wire. Push the earpiece back into place on the sunglasses and gently wiggle a small piece of wire through the screw hole. Pull the wire through the opposite end and push it back through. Push the wire through at least three times and use your pliers to twist together the ends.<br />Fill a small bowl with warm water and set your sunglasses in it. This is a quick trick for fixing loose frames. The warm water heats up the frames, making it possible to reshape the glasses yourself. Remove the sunglasses after a few minutes and gently bend the frames.<br />Hold the Ray-Ban sunglasses in one hand to replace a lens that popped out. Turn the sunglasses over, so that the front faces down and place the lens onto the back. Gently press down with your other hand, until the lens pops back into place.<br />Use an eyeglass repair kit to replace any missing screws. The kits come with several small screws and a tiny screwdriver. Line up the screw to the proper hole and gently screw into place. If the screw won't go in, it means that your screw hole is stripped and you need to use the wire method.<br />Seal broken parts with instant glue. For broken frames, apply a thin layer of glue to one side and push the broken piece back into place. Hold until the glue dries. Instant glue also fixes lenses for wireless frames. Apply a layer of glue to the bottom of the top piece and push the lens in place.

My right lens is scratched after dropping them on the pavement. Where can I have them repaired? Thank you kevin


Unfortunately, scratches in coated sunglasses cannot be repaired, you will have to replace the lens. Mostly there are even both lenses replaced because it may happen that there is a slight difference between the colour of the old and the new lens.But often you can come to an agreement with the optician, especially when you are his customer to get both lenses for a special price. If you have paid a lot of money for your glasses it may be worth the expenses.

Love my TY7005, but they have scratched lens. Can the scratches be removed or do the lens need to be replaced? Cost? Who does the repair? Is it successful?


unfortunately scratches cannot be removed. Therefore it's very important if you put your glasses for example on the table, to take care not to put them there on the glass. Always transport them inside an etui. Every good optician can replace them, the cost are dependent on the quality of the glass. But if you don't need optical glass they should be quite moderate.

    Should I purchase a sunglasses with a glass lens?


    Well, here are some facts about glass lenses that might help you reach a better decision.Glass is the only lens material that can be made into 100% optically correct sunglasses. For true vision, there is no comparison between glass and other lens materials.
    Glass does not flex or compress. Whenever lenses are placed into an eyewear frame, they are held in place by pressure of some kind. Plastic lenses flex and that creates distortion; but that cannot happen with glass lenses.
    Glass does not expand or contract in heat and cold in a significant way. No matter what the temperature outside, 100% optically correct sunglasses will remain 100% optically correct.
    Glass is the hardest material, and the most scratch-resistant. Glass is the most durable, and longest-lasting sunglass lens material. However, it is not scratch proof. Sand can scratch glass, but it requires serious effort or trauma to scratch glass lenses.
    Technology has made it possible to create a very lightweight glass lens. Today, it can be difficult to tell the difference between glass and plastic, even when holding a pair with glass lenses in one hand and a pair with plastic in the other hand. (Of course, the difference is clear when looking through the lenses. But the weight of the lens is no longer a dead giveaway as to which is which.)

    The danger of shattering was once one of the major disadvantages of glass lenses. However, all glass lenses pass the "Drop Ball Test" for impact resistance - the same test that is administered to polycarbonate and CR-39 lenses. When today's polarized lenses tend to break in a similar pattern as a car windshield. The broken pieces of glass mostly stick to the polarizing film that is inside the lens.
    These Spotters had been stepped on by the customer. Notice that the broken lens has retained its original curvature. The broken lens pieces were still so tightly held by the frame that we had to smash the broken lens out of the frame with a hammer (it took more than a few smacks, too!). This isn't to say in any way that glass lenses are equivalent to safety glasses. However, polarized glass lenses are much, much less likely to cause injuries today than they ever have been in the past.
