How to adjust nose pads while protecting the frame and temple hinges

First, cup the outside left lens area firmly in your left hand with the nose pads facing upwards. Using your forefinger and thumb of your opposite hand, reposition the nose pad in the desired direction, taking care to follow the existing contour. Make moves in small increments, as not much will be needed. Repeat process on the right side, using opposite hands. Be sure to make equal adjustments to both sides.

Adjusting your temple arms

The correct temple arm length will make for a more comfortable fit and will prevent glasses from sliding. Note: when adjusting your temple arms, be sure you do not place any stress on the hinges.

Checking alignment

Place your glasses on a flat surface to ensure level alignment. Both temples should touch the surface on the same plane. Flip the glasses on their backside to verify the frame is also level.
