What Causes Glasses to Loosen?

Eyeglasses can loosen, which requires adjustments. If you are new to wearing glasses or you’ve never had loose glasses before, you might think you need a professional to fix the problem. The good news is, this usually isn’t the case, and you can tighten your glasses at home.

Glasses loosen for many different reasons. Most people put on and remove their glasses several times each day. The back and forth movements of the glasses’ arms increase the likelihood that they’ll loosen.

What can you do to fix your glasses if they become loose?

How to Tighten Glasses

Sometimes you can tighten your glasses frames when they are too loose.

Most pairs of eyeglasses have a screw located at the temple hinge on both sides. You can tighten this screw to make your glasses more comfortable or prevent them from falling apart. It’s a good idea to check these screws periodically so you can tighten them before they fall out.

You’ll probably need an optometric screwdriver to tighten the screws in your glasses. You can also use a small screwdriver as long as it fits into the screw top.

When you adjust, adjust as many times as possible and gently, and don't use too much force. So as not to scratch the glasses.
