Adjusting Plastic Glasses Frames

To adjust plastic frames, heat is used. Heating a plastic frame sounds easier than it is. The frame must be heated carefully so as not to overheat or underheat the frame prior to adjusting. Overheating the frame could cause bubbling or damage to the frame and/or lens. Underheating the frame could lead to breakage during the adjustment. When a plastic frame is heated just right, the frame is malleable, but not too malleable. If the frame bends too easily during adjustment, it is overheated, and if it still retains stiffness, it is underheated.

To heat a plastic frame, first decide on the area that needs adjustment, and heat that one area without putting heat on the lenses (if they are in the frame). Heat one area at a time, make the adjustment, and then move on to another area. Do not heat more than one area at a time and attempt to make several adjustments before the frame cools down.

The preferred methods for heating a plastic eyeglasses frame is salt pan or forced hot air. A salt pan is an electric device that contains small glass beads (not salt). The device is turned on and left to warm for a period, and the “salt” should be turned periodically to be sure that the heat is evenly distributed. The salt pan is a good heating method when there are no lenses in the frame. But overall the preferred method for heating a plastic frame, with or without lenses, is the forced hot method.

While using forced hot air, be sure to constantly rotate the frame like meat on a spit. This will ensure that the frame is heated evenly and is not distorted. Again, be sure not to overheat the frame, as this could cause distortion of the plastic and/or of the lacquer coating surface of the frame.
