3. Will it take a lot of my time to ship the eyeglasses out?
It will take you only a few minutes to fill out the form and pack your glasses. Then a few minutes at the post office and your glasses are on their way to repair.
If you want to fill out the Shipping label online you can do that at the United States Postal Service site here.
You will have to fill out your information and Credit card info but you will save the time at the post office since you can just drop the package off at the counter or mail receptacle without waiting.

Usually it takes 1-3 days for one-way shipping, 1-3 days for the repair to get shipped back, so after a week or so you have your glasses back intact.
If you are in a hurry you can send to us by any EXPRESS SHIP method and we will work on the glasses the SAME DAY we receive them.
4. Is this Laser eyeglass repair the only solution to my problem, or will it require others?
To repair your eyeglasses with the laser and Argon chamber is the safest method for repair. Since there is very little heat and no oxygen your glasses finish will not be affected by the repair.
Most of our clients can't even tell where the glasses were repaired.
Usually we align your frames during the repair so you don't have to go to an optician to get that done. If you need work done on your lenses, however, you need to see an optician
5. What if the eyeglass repair doesn't work?
If, for some reason, the repair is not possible we will contact you right away.
6. What if something goes wrong?
When we repair your glasses we protect or remove the lens during the welding process. We carefully assemble the frame so there will be no marks on the finish of the frame.
7. Can I afford this laser repair of my eyeglass?
For $39.95 ( in most cases) your glasses will be useable for another few years if cared for properly. This is a fraction of the cost of new glasses.
8. What will my friends, family, or peers say?
Once you are satisfied with our repair please share this option with your friends and family. We are sure your friends will be impressed with this inexpensive solution to keep your eyeglasses for a few more years.
9. Do I really need this Laser repair of my glasses?
There are many ways to repair broken eyeglass frames, but we have found out that Laser welding seems the longest lasting of the available repairs.

We do not recommend trying these repairs because the frames get contaminated or worse.

12. What if this is not the right version of eyeglass repair?
Most broken eyeglasses that we repair are made of some titanium (or other) alloy that needs to be repaired in an Argon chamber with little heat.
We have come across many versions of breaking points, material strength, size of frame, proximity to heat sensitive parts or finish.
We are quite experienced in most scenarios but if you have something unusual to repair please contact us.
