How to adjust metal frame
a. If you need to make the frame tighter
Hold the frame by your hands. If you want to narrow the frame, push the nose bridge outward and adjust it gently. Do not use too much force.
Then if the guest still feels too loose, you can adjust the end pieces that is con- nected to the temples on both sides of the frame, and gently push it inward and make the frame closer to the face.
If the customer feels that the frame is too loose when wearing, ex: the frame fallling easily when the head go down or they feel uncomfortable behind the ears. Firstly, please use both hands to hold the temples and rubbing it to make it warmer. After the heat is applied, bend the temples inward to make the end-tips grab the ears properly.

The acetate frame has the adjustability of softening when it is hot, and it can be shaped when it is cold. Generally, there are professional machines for that, but usually we can use our hands to rub the frame and make it warm or use a hair dryer to warm it up and adjust it.
Use the hand to adjust the frame (temple and end-tips) or use the lowest temperature of hair dryer, warm it up from 40-50cm away, please be careful to keep away from the lens.
The acetate frame becomes softer when is warm and it can be adjusted by hand. It is the same as the metal frame that how to check the balance of a glass, wether customers want the frame is looser or tighter, just follow the adjust- ment of metal frame, and help customers to find the most comfortable fit.
