Take them to where they sell glasses. Hopefully they will repair them for free if they are prescription lens. Better yet if you bought them there.

Hi,

I work for an Optometrist and the best advice I can give is to take your glasses to a practice- preferably the one you got them at. If it's been under 2 years there is usually a manufacturer warranty against defect. Unfortunately, if the spring is broken it can't be fixed. But, they may be able to find a spare part from another broken frame to 'jerry rig' yours with. Good luck!

If you have lost a screw, you can use the wire in a bread tie to thread through the hole and hold the glasses in place until you can get them repaired. Strip the paper from the wire on the bread tie.

If they are just cheap sunglasses, somewhere near the registers of places like K-Mart, Wal-Mart, and pharmacy stores you can usually find the little kits with a variety of screws and a tiny little screwdriver.
