Introduction

This guide will walk you through our repair process step by step on how to reattach a loosen nose pad on a pair of eyeglasses. You will need a nose pad, a 1.0mm flathead screwdriver, a magnet, and an extra screw if you have lost the one on your eyeglasses.

We feel this guide is necessary because according to our research, myopia is affecting nearly 40 percent of the US population. In addition, based on our own experiences, nose pads are normally the weakest part of the glasses. For those who need their glasses everyday, knowing how to repair the nose pads by themselves is extremely useful.
