Many people don't realize it, but glasses need to be repaired and adjusted regularly.

Our team at 20/20 EyeVenue has experienced optometrists providing quality eye care for residents in Denver, Broomfield, and Westminster. We will help you feel more comfortable in your glasses with a few repairs and adjustments.
Frequent Eyeglass Repairs and Adjustments
Most eyeglasses need to be repaired and adjusted every few months. This is especially true if you wear them every day. If you notice that your glasses are sliding down your nose, then it is time to have them tightened.
The constant rubbing of the frames against your skin can cause them to start wearing down. In some cases, the frames might need to be replaced if they are severely damaged.
The eye doctor will also check the lenses for scratches and other damage. If there is any damage, we may need to replace them. Lenses that are scratched or worn can cause eye strain.
3. Nose pads
The bridge of the nose might start to wear out as well. In these cases, the optometrist can replace or tighten the pads on the bridge of the glasses. Over time, you may also need to replace them if they become damaged from rubbing against your skin.
4. Screws and hinges
Like any other item, the screws and hinges that hold your eyeglasses together will start to wear down over time. If they become loose, the doctor can tighten them or replace them.
