Background and Identification
Modern glasses are made of a pair of lenses set into a frame that allows them to sit in front of the user’s eyes, typically as a visual aid. Lenses were historically made of glass, but can now be made with either glass or hard plastic. Repairs on a pair of glasses will usually be quite small, so having a magnifying glass (or a friend with good eyesight) can be helpful during the repair process.
Both the frame and the lens of a pair of glasses can be damaged. Some issues, like scratches on the lenses, may not be repairable. However, while sometimes the only solution is to consult an optometrist (eye doctor) and possibly get a new lens or a new pair of glasses entirely, often it is possible to repair a small issue, like a bent frame. The frame of the Perry Ellis P254 is mostly made of stainless steel, which is quite strong and corrosion resistant. This means that if the frame breaks, it will have to be welded back together, which is a fairly delicate job. However, the strength of the frame material makes this unlikely. A more likely issue would be that the frame has become twisted or bent. In that case, the glasses would not sit comfortably on the face. This blog post from Eye Buy Direct offers some helpful tips on fixing a bent metal frame.
