Super Glue … for glasses?

Recently, Mum’s glasses broke. The little piece that sits across the bridge of her nose just detached itself on one side and basically rendered the glasses useless. We ordered her a new set right away, but in the meantime she needed something to read with while she waited for her replacement glasses.

I asked around, and while some recommended going to a jewelry store and getting it micro-soldered in place, others suggested super glue. Not just any super glue, but the Gorilla Glue Super Glue.

I’m cheap. So I tried the super glue route, and to my surprise, it worked. This glue works on a variety of materials, including metal, ceramic, leather, plastic, wood and more. For me, the metal-to-metal was all that mattered. Bonus, this dries super fast! They recommend just 10 to 30 seconds. We left it longer, not wanting to take a chance, and it doesn’t seem to have done any harm.

The glasses were useable again, Mum lasted out the wait for the new glasses,  and now she has a spare set in case anything happens to her brand new pair!
