An internal spring hinge, on the other hand, can’t be repaired or replaced. Typically the entire temple needs to be replaced, because the replacement comes with a fully working spring hinge. The edge of each eyepiece extends out beyond the shape of the lens. This part is called the endpiece, The component connected to this part is the hinge which holds the temples to the frame front. Temples First, I grabbed the portion of the metal hinge that protruded from the frame with a set of leatherman pliers. Of course, you could use any type of needle-nose pliers for this step. I wouldn't use a heavier set of pliers like lineman's pliers, because they will take longer to heat up. The pliers need to heat up enough so that they can start to transfer heat to the hinge which will start to soften the plastic that is holding it in. Standard hinges might not be the most comfortable if you have a wider face that needs the temples on your frames to extend out wider.

This refers to the number of interconnected barrels that comprise the hinge. For conventional hinges, five- and seven-barrel configurations are the most common. While seven-barrel hinges are sturdier, they’re also more difficult to adjust and repair. When choosing between five- and seven-barrel hinges, let your habits inform your decision. If you’re hard on your glasses, for example, five-barrel hinges may be a better option for you. Spring/Flex Hinges

Don’t let your glasses go unhinged

When you think about prescription eyeglasses , what’s the first thing to come to mind? Is it their color? Maybe their shape? How about their construction? While considering aesthetics of your eyeglasses is important, it’s equally crucial to pay attention to how they’re put together. Also consider the location of the bridge in relation to the browline of the frame. Frames with bridges that are even with the browline are great if the bridge of your nose is higher on your face (above your pupils). Frames with a lower bridge and a more arched browline are best if the bridge of your nose is lower on your face (approximately even with your pupils). To make this job easier, it’s a good idea to work sitting down at a desk over some white paper. This way, you can see more easily and the screw is more visible in case you drop it… which is pretty much inevitable. Optical screws just looove rolling under heavy objects or falling between floorboards. You’ve been warned. There are three main types of hinges that can be used when making eyewear like eyeglasses or sunglasses.

Library temples are straight all-shaft temples with no bend in them. Most eyeglasses frames' temples have temple tips that are adjustable so that they can be changed (bent) to adjust the fit of the glasses. Leave your frame to let the glue or acetone fully ‘cure’ for 1-2 hours before removing the tape from your lenses The benefits of spring hinges is that they provide more comfort, help the glasses stay on during physical activity, and require less adjustments than traditional hinges.

However, adjusting them may require a trip to the optician, although you can easily do it by yourself if needed. However, mass-produced hinges of this kind might not provide the most secure fit, which can lead to some slipping during certain activities, unlike the durable and supportive OBE hinges used in all of our trendy prescription designer eyeglasses . Flexible Spring Hinge Unfortunately, no. The mechanism is quite small and intricate, and repairing it yourself when it is damaged is near impossible. You’ll need to go to an optician or eyeglasses repair company for this.Glasses that pinch your nose aren’t just uncomfortable, prolonged pressure can cause headaches or migraines too. How you fix this depends on your frame material. As eyeglasses evolve over time, so do various frames, lenses and of course, hinges. However, there is one type of eyewear that does away with hinges, and it’s currently trending. A great pair of hinges will mean a more comfortable and durable pair of eyeglasses that sit properly on the face, allowing you to see the world clearly. On the other hand, poorly designed hinges can result in fragile frames that slip off the face and fail to keep your lenses aligned.
