    Adjustment Advice

    If one of the frame fronts is closer to the eye than the other, how do you correct this.

    For example if the right eye wire rim is closer to the eye and the left is more out.

    Are you supposed to bend the right temple in or bend out the left temple???

    First check the Front of the frame to make sure that the bridge is not askew. If the bridge is askewed unmount the lenses and realign the bridge adjust four point touch for the frame and remount the lenses. If the frame has nose pads make sure they are evenly adjusted as well, if not readjust. Double check 4 point touch frame alignment, then check the fit on the patient. Adjust the temple bends according to the patient and you should be set.

    Either will move the right out and the left in; do you want to end up tighter overall, or looser? And when you do either, bend from the endpiece, not in the middle of the temple, which creates an unsightly bowed appearance.

    Three possibilities to the problem. 1.An endpiece is bent out more than it should be. 2. An endpiece is bent in more than it should be. 3.If neither of those appear to be the problem, check to see if the bridge is askew.
    The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.
