Reuse Lenses From Broken Reading Glasses

At one point I ordered some 5X reading glasses online. The lenses were great, but the frames a bit flimsy and broke very quickly. I got the company to give me some new ones, but I was still left with the lenses from the broken frames.


Surprise! I found that I could put the lenses into old wire sun glasses frames! The lenses are not a complete fit, but the ridge on the edge is just enough to anchor them into the wire frames and make them useable. Handle them carefully and you will have another emergency pair of glasses. (I haven't tried it, but you might be able to do the same thing with broken prescription glasses.) I don't know about you, but I need all the reading glasses I can get!

Great idea! Hubby isn't prone to breaking his glasses - he's prone to leaving them where our bratty dog can chew them when she's miffed at him ffor something. :P
