While checking out the selection, I overheard a young fellow exclaim something like ‘I love Oakley’s but I keep breaking mine!’. I think we were both lucky: I own the Eyeglass Repair Centre, and the young fellow learned about our fantastic service.
Anyway, this scenario made me think about all my years of servicing broken glasses and sunglasses (just shy of 30 years), and how I had heard of just about every possible reason why a person’s frames had broken. I had accumulated a wealth of knowledge and the trip to Oakley’s was the catalyst to a new and very beneficial article: How to prevent your sunglasses and eyeglasses from breaking so that they last longer.
Rule 1: If you don’t wear your frames constantly on your face, either make use of a neck cord or, which I personally recommend, is to ensure your glasses are clipped onto your shirt, like the picture on the side of this article
Rule 2: Try not to remove your eyewear by holding just one of the earpieces. Hold both the earpieces, one in each hand, and then remove your glasses with care
Rule 3: Invest in a small screwdriver meant for eyewear so that you can regularly tighten the screws of your eyeglasses or sunglasses
Rule 4: This is related to maintaining the lens itself; always wet the lenses (warm water or lens cleaner) before wiping them down
Rule 5: Finally, look before you sit down. Probably half of all broken frames were caused by accidently sitting on them
I hope this information will be helpful. Remember, if they do break there is an option!
