My glasses broke today. I took them off to clean them, and the screw holding the frame shut on the right side just fell out. :/ These glasses are only about six weeks old. My dad got glasses at the same place and at the same time, and his also broke (about two or three weeks ago--he's already had them replaced).
My mom's going to get a glasses repair kit on her way home from work, but I'm not sure how well that will work. The screw just plain fell out, so I think the thread's been stripped (I didn't get a good look because lol bad eyesight and by the time I fixed my glasses, I'd put the screw away so I don't lose it). My dad said that's what happened to his glasses. :/
Since I'm sick, I can't wear my contacts. So I decided to look for my old pair. Then I realized that they're at my grandmother's house.
I improvised. I stuck some wire through the hole and wound it to keep the frame shut. I couldn't clamp the frame down fully, though, so a bit of the lens is still loose. It took me forever to find the pliers, though. And then once I found them, I lost the lens that had fallen out. I'm too blind to be looking for clear things without assistance.
My dad said he's going to bring me to get them repaired tomorrow, and since it's near my grandmother's, we'll also pick up my old glasses. I've still got the screw, so hopefully the repair kit will work. It would be very annoying if I had to use my old glasses for a week.
