Actually, acetate glasses are plastic glasses. Because of their special materials, acetate glasses can be shown in various frames and colors, plus, they are so lightweight. That's also the reason that acetate glasses become more and more popular among famous people and ordinary people. Also, their materials make them be much broken than quality frames. When your acetate glasses have some small problems, you can handle it with hands and screwdriver. Because frames are easy to loose and deformation. But if they are broken, the best thing to do is to visit the retailer outlet where you buy them and show your bill to proof you buy them here indeed. The specialist will do you a favor. By the way, some small problems such as frames loose, frames deformation and color fading can be handled by yourself. However, if they glasses are broken or frames are loose one legs, I don't think you can repair them. So if you love them, go to eyeglasses center to have repaired.
I once broke a pair of acetate glasses too. The optometrist told me that there was no way to fix it unless you only lost a screw. You can buy a new pair. Don't be sad. You can put it in this way that it is a good chance to change your image. There are so many styles and colors of glasses you can choose. I suggest you to shop online. So far there are many eyewear shops on line for the booming e-business. The price is very cheap and you can easily get what you want without walking out from store to store. If you don't like the glasses after received, you can easily get refund. How can someone does not like it! If you are lucky, you can even get glasses for free.
