About Plastic Eyeglasses and Sunglasses

One of the original and most common plastics used to make eyeglass frames is acetate. There are many other plastics used to make eyeglasses and sunglasses too, which include nylon, carbon-fiber, optyl amongst others. The most common repairs on plastic eyeglass and sunglass frames are broken bridges and broken hinges on the front frame of the eyewear, or side arms also know as the temples. Most glasses have metal hinges that are fused in and can be extracted and replaced with a brand new one. However, some plastic frames are casted and are made entirely of its respective plastic material, hinges and all. Almost all plastic frames can be repaired by the expert technicians at As a matter of fact there is very few broken glasses that the expert technicians at World Optic cannot fix.

World Optic technicians use many different fusing methods to fix plastic frames. Our technicians can remove broken hinges from plastic frames and fuse a new hinge in place. In most cases our technicians can even fuse a plastic frame back together. Our advanced technology combined with our experience offers practically unnoticeable results that are backed with a one year warranty (some exceptions may apply for certain types of plastics).
