Plastic repair work done to your eyewear
Repairing Plastic sunglasses and eyeglasses is the most common repair our specialists are trained to do. There are generally two places that most glasses break in. They break right in the middle of the Nose Bridgee or the Temple (arm) breaks off the metallic hinge. Need not worry, in all cases of plastic repair work , the repair is done flawlessly. The process to repair the plastic frame has been engineered so that the repair result is permanent. We have a special plastic welding process that molds both ends together to form a solid bond. A metal pin is then inserted in the center of the inside plastic before the weld process begins for added reinforcement. Once the weld is complete, the item is buffed and polished and painted if needed. Need not worry about the repair line. Its almost invisible. Not everyone is as familiar with the descriptions of the parts of eyeglasses.
Some examples of lens replacements we have done on various brands.Example #1 (Ray Ban)
This pair of Ray Ban Sunglasses came cracked right down the middle. The lab inserted a metallic pin in between the disconnected units and performed a standard weld to merge the break line. The sunglasses were repaired and the customer was able to continue to wear them.
Example #2 (D&G)
The most common problem in the repair of plastic glasses is that one or both of the temples become displaced from sunglasses. Usually it happens when the hinge is cracked from the temple or the hinge breaks. The customer sent these Dolce & Gabbanna sunglasses in to us to weld the arm back into place. The process that is done is a standard weld is performed in the area of the hinge. The hinge is set into the breakage point with precision. The trick is to make sure the welded portion is positioned properly so that the temple will be able to close in and out with standard usage. This was no sweat for our lab. Job successfully complete!
Example #3 (Prada)
Sometimes the hinge breaks off completely and is lost forever. This is what happened in this case to this customer. The hinge was lost by the customer and there was no way to weld the hinge back into place, because there was no hinge. For this repair since the Prada SPS52E sunglasses were still in production. Our lab simply ordered a brand new temple for the customer. Two screws and five minutes later, the problem was solved! Since our lab operated inside an optical store we are able to order merchandise direct from the manufacturer for almost any brand or model. The trick is weather the item is still in production.
