Metal Repair



Laser Welding Prescription Eyeglasses

This pair of Oliver Peoples Eyeglasses snapped right at the nose bridge. The lab performed a Laser Weld and re-attached the glasses back together. The customer had in these glasses a set of very expensive crizal coated lenses. The lab saved this customer a lot of money in having to replace. The eyeglasses were repaired and the customer was able to continue to wear them.

Microwelding Prescription Eyeglasses

The temple of these Vintage Christian Dior Eyeglasses broke apart at the hinge. This frame was last produced in 1994, there was no way to order a new temple. Our lab installed an aftermarket hinge and welded it to the frame. With a little buffing and some paint the vintage Dior has been saved and the customer was able to continue to enjoy it for many more years to come.

Microwelding Titanium

The bridge on these broke and needed to be welded. The problem is that the material was Titanium, a very hard to weld item. For hard to weld frames, the lab uses a technique called Microwelding. Microwelding fuses titanium ends directly to each other for a bond that comes as close to the original strength as possible. Microwelding involves no flames to avoid damage.
