Sunglasses Maintenance Guide

cloth2Summer isn’t the same without a good pair of sunglasses. However, all of the beach days and outdoor adventures can take a toll on your frames. Here is a quick step by step on how to get your sunglasses looking new again!

How to Tighten your Aviator Sunglasses

After continuous wear, it is common for sunglasses and other eyewear to start to loosen up and eventually slide down your nose or fall down. Here are some easy ways to manipulate our metal frames back into shape:

  • First, you’ll want to check that the hinges are tight. Randolph supplies a tiny screwdriver with our sunglasses that does the job perfectly.

  • After this, check your nose pads. Nose pads shouldn’t leave a mark on the sides of your nose or be too loose that they make your glasses slide down. Slight pressure applied to them should get them back into place.
  • Lastly, and perhaps the trickiest part, is adjusting the temples or arms of the frame. These loosen up quite easily if you’re used to pushing your glasses back on your head. Slight pressure applied to the temple tips should allow them to wrap around the back of your ears. Tilt your head down slightly to make sure your sunglasses stay in place. If you don’t feel comfortable doing this, most sunglass shops will have an expert on staff to do this for you.
