How many of us Little Four Eyes parents have had to attempt to fix glasses until new ones come in? We just ordered Aubrie’s new prescription & her backup pair broke. She’s rocking some serious duct-tape on her temple until the new ones, and the backup replacements come in. Usually we ALWAYS have backups, but her 3rd pair are just way too small and she said they hurt. Anyway, I figure I can’t be alone. I felt absolutely terrible sending her to a library program around all her peers in duct-tape, but hey what can you do until they have your new ones ready? I’m just glad she’s 3 and doesn’t realize she’s rocking the duct-tape…if it happens again in Jr. High I’ll be doomed!
I know for a fact that Annie isn’t alone in trying home repairs. So, what kind of glasses repairs have you had to do? Duct tape? Rubber bands? Anything work particularly well – or not well at all? We’ve only tried to repair Zoe’s glasses once, and that was pretty close to a failure (she refused to wear them with the electric-taped ear piece). Thankfully her new glasses arrived the next day!
