Eyeglasses Screw Fell Out – How To Repair Your Glasses

The screw in my glasses fell out! What screw will fit? The arm on my glasses fell off completely. The tiny screw has fallen out. I am not sure if the glasses have a spring hinge or not, but the holes do not line up very well. I can put a tiny wire through the hole to reattach the arm of my glasses. When I use this small piece of wire, it makes my glasses loose so they are not properly aligned on my face. Is there somewhere I can go to get a screw that will fit in my eyeglasses that will fit? I have a pair of sunglasses that are the same way. Please help.

  1. I have the right screw and screw drive, but the holes on the hinge will NOT line up no matter what I do. Help?

  2. How do you insert a tiny screw into a tiny hole when it keeps coming out. If only could grip screw maybe with something magnetic.

  3. Is the screw different on the airlock glasses? I put one in that came out of an old pair of glasses but it still won’t stay? Can’t find the original!
