Let’s face it – we all have our own struggles when it comes to adjustments. Unless you happen to be a whiz at DIY projects, fitting eyeglasses can sometimes feel like a never-ending battle of wits. However, armed with the right amount of knowledge and practice, tightening eyeglasses is not as difficult as many tend to think. When it comes to repairing your eyeglasses, there are plenty of different ways you can get the job done without breaking the bank or stressing yourself out. Here are six simple tricks on how you can tighten your glasses without a screwdriver:
How To Tighten Eyeglasses Without A Screwdriver
Use a Lighter
If you have ever tried to tighten your eyeglasses with a screwdriver, you know that it can be a bit cumbersome. However, if you would like to avoid the hassle of getting out of your toolbox and need something quick, you can use a lighter. Why use the lighter? Well, because it is very easy to work with and will not damage your glasses. The process is simple: just hold the lighter against your glasses and gently move it in the direction of where you want them to be tightened. Be careful not to burn yourself or damage the frame.
Use an Eyeglass Cleaner
This method is actually quite useful for cleaning glasses that have been scratched or otherwise damaged. To use this method effectively, get some eyeglass cleaner and spray it onto a cloth or paper towel. You can then wipe away any unwanted substances from your lenses without damaging them further by using this method. If desired, you can also use a bit of rubbing alcohol to help remove any dirt or debris from your glasses.
Use a Toothbrush
If you have ever struggled to get your eyeglasses off, you might want to try using a toothbrush as an alternative way of removing the lenses. This method is actually quite simple: just use the toothbrush in the direction of where you want your glasses to be tightened. Be careful not to scratch the lenses with the toothbrush, though.

Tweezers can actually be quite helpful when it comes to tightening eyeglasses without a screwdriver because they can provide more precise control over the screws and nuts that hold them in place. You can use tweezers by placing them over each screw or nut and then tightening them with some force until they are completely secure. This method is actually quite simple and can be used to tighten eyeglasses without a screwdriver.
Use an Eyeglass Repair Kit
If you wish to tighten your glasses without a screwdriver, you might also want to consider using an eyeglass repair kit instead. These kits usually contain a few screws, nuts, and washers that you can use to tighten your glasses without the hassle of using tools. You can also find these kits sold in most drugstores or even online for a relatively cheap price. These kits are extremely helpful because they allow you to make minor adjustments or repairs to your eyeglasses without having to buy new lenses or frames.
Use Household Tweezers
This method is actually quite simple: just remove all of the screws and nuts from the frame of your glasses with some tweezers and then use them to tighten the frame itself by pushing them into place with some force until they are secure in their position. This method will work for most eyeglasses and is a great alternative to using a screwdriver.
Use A Soft Cloth To Clean The Frames
- Use a soft cloth to clean the frames. This will help you get rid of any dust and debris that may be stuck in between the frame.
- The cloth will help you remove any dust and debris that may be stuck in between the frame.
- After cleaning, if you notice any small bits of debris left on your glasses, use a toothpick or a bent paperclip to gently scrape away at those bits so they don’t scratch your lenses.
- When finished, simply use a soft cloth to clean up the lens before putting them back on your face.
Try Using Soap And Water
- Wash your glasses with soapy water and let them dry completely.
- Once they are completely dry, you can use a cloth to gently rub them back and forth until they feel snug.
- Try to avoid pulling them too tight when tightening – this will only cause the glasses to become loose in the future. Instead, try to push in the frame and then tighten it evenly around the frame’s curve and temples.
- If you find that some parts of the glasses are still loose, it’s best to take off your glasses first before tightening them again. This way, you won’t damage any parts of your frames while trying to get it all tight at once. Make sure that you put on a fresh pair of eyeglasses before continuing with these steps since soap can sometimes cause damage if not washed off properly immediately after being exposed to water (this is especially true for acetate frames).
Stick A Piece Of Scotch Tape On The Bridge
- Find a piece of scotch tape that is around the same size as your eyeglasses. The tape should be thick enough to cover the bridge of your glasses and not be too thick to fit through the eyeholes of your frames.
- Simply stick the tape on the bridge and then gently press it down with your fingers to see if it fits through the eyeholes. If it does, you’re good to go. You can fix any bridges that feel too tight or loose by simply sticking another piece of scotch tape over the first piece and then gently pressing down on both pieces at once. This will ensure that they are tightly stuck together and will stay in place while you’re wearing them all day long.
- Check which side of your glasses face up when you put them on: If one side feels tighter than the other, simply use a pair of scissors to cut off a small portion from both sides until they are even again.
Use A Tiny Drop Of Glue Instead
Use a tiny drop of glue
If you’re not comfortable using your hands, one way to get the eyeglasses adjusted is by using a tiny drop of glue. You simply need to apply some glue on the back of the frame and press it firmly on the sides. Then, apply another drop of glue on top of the first one and gently press them together until they become one.
Use a tiny drop of hair gel
If you feel like your glasses are getting too heavy, consider using a tiny amount of hair gel. Simply put some hair gel in the middle of your frame where it meets with the arms, then hold both sides together while pressing them firmly against each other until they become one. This trick will help you get your glasses back into shape quickly and easily without needing to struggle with screwdrivers or pliers!
Use double-sided tape
If you’re looking for a quick and easy way to get your glasses adjusted, then consider using double-sided tape. You simply need to apply a small amount of tape on the inside of the arm of your glasses, then stick it on the outer side of the frame. This will help you get your glasses back into shape quickly and easily without needing to struggle with screwdrivers or pliers!
Use a little bit of superglue
If you’re looking for a quick and easy way to get your glasses adjusted, then consider using super glue. Simply put some super glue on the inside where it meets with the arms, then stick it on the outer side of the frame. This will help you get your glasses back into shape quickly and easily without needing to struggle with screwdrivers or pliers!
Use Velcro strips
