How to Fix Rimless Glasses

If you frequently wear semi-rimless glasses, you’ve undoubtedly encountered an issue with the lenses popping out of your frame. But that doesn’t mean the glasses can’t be saved! Here’s a home remedy for re-inserting lenses to the frame.

What you’ll need:

  1. 8” of thick fishing line. (Thick enough to stay in place on your glasses)
  2. Scissors


  1. Holding frames in your free hand, insert the fishing line into the small holes near the bridge of the glasses, on the inside.
  2. Thread out, then thread back in. Hold the line still and taught near the bridge of the nose.
  3. Take the other end of the line, from the inside, and wrap in the other hole on the other side.
  4. Insert the lens into the built-in groove in the frame.
  5. Tighten the line against the lens, in the groove in the lens.
  6. Cut off the excess fishing line.
