Replace vs Repair

So, you’ve broken your favorite pair of frames. Maybe you sat on them or stepped on them. Maybe your dog turned them into his favorite new chew toy. Really, we’ve heard just about every possible reason eyeglasses and sunglasses become broken.

If your initial thought after surveying the damage is, “Well, I guess I need a new pair of glasses,” please first consider the repair option.

The reasons to repair, rather than replace, are numerous.


First, and possibly most important, repairing is usually the least-expensive option. Quality frames are not cheap these days, and we’re not even talking about designer eyeglasses and sunglasses, which can run well into the hundreds of dollars. Furthermore, even if your frames were purchased for less, we all know the price of prescription lenses continues to rise. Most of the repairs performed by Eyeglass Repair Guru run between $29 and $49, a bargain when you start adding up the cost of fashionable frames and prescription lenses.

HIgh Tech

Second, repairs can extend the life of your frames for many years, saving you money in the long run. We’re not talking about Scotch tape, Super Glue, and paper clips here. Eyeglass Repair Guru repairs are performed using up-to-the-minute technology as well as more low-tech techniques honed through decades of experience in the field.


Third, your glasses make a statement about you and the way you look. For some, your eyeglass and sunglass frames are one-of-a-kind fashion accessories and you love them the way you might love a favorite pair of earrings or wristwatch. In other words, you really, really don’t want to part with them. Guess what? You don’t have to, because Eyeglass Repair Guru is here to make sure of that, taking extra care with your cherished frames and doing everything within our power to return them to their previous glory.

Best Option

Please remember:
There are very few impossible repairs, so buying new frames does not have to be your only option. And in most cases, repairing simply is the BEST option.
