Super glue should be good but if you wanted to get some glue that would hold
like hell to use on it. Go by a place where the put windshields in at and get a
drop of the glue they used to put the rear view mirrors on with. It drys very
clear and the extra that squirts out. It can be wipped off before it drys . I
seen a fellow use it to put a side mirror back together and you could bearly see
the crack line at all. You have 30 seconds to get it cleaned off and set before
it grabs the surfaces. Also they do have some stuff to clean the over part to
clean it off to not see the extra left on the sides.
Now you could get the eye place to put another glass in there or plastic .

It maybe super glue but I have a friend that rebuilds cars and uses the the
stuff to put mirrors back on with and has used just plain super glue to put the
mirrors on with and in about 6 to 12 months the mirror comes loose. If he uses
the bottle stuff from the Glass companys they never come loose. I really don't
know what is the difference but there is a difference of some kind that will
hold the mirrors so well. Buzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz i can't stand it. I just called
my buddy up and got him to give me the scoop on the glue stuff. Here is what he
He said the glue diffently is different from plain super glue for it has a
urothain sun blocker in it and has epoxie base stuff in it. The sun light will
break down plain super glue and not effect the Mirror glue called Lock Tight
Weather bright which is made by Somoca company. Their website is www.somaca.com
or the glue explained on page here
<www.somaca.com/ProductDetail.asp?ProductNumber2-3326 > and you can look it
up on the site. Now if you need it to be explain better than I can you can call
1-800-527-5170 and they can explain it better to you or use the number from the
website. It cost about $20.00 or $30.00 for a small 2 oz. bottle and has a life
spand of about a year.
It may look like a duck and walks like a duck but it's not a duck because it is
two different type of glue.
:) But my wife broke her sunglasses. They are prescription. She had the lenses
:) tinted. The frames are plastic. Would your run of the mill superglue fix
:) these? Or is there something stronger?
What ever is used don't fix the glasses right before usage. The
adhesives may give off irritating fumes for a while.

Don't be surprised if superglue doesn't hold. Some plastic eyeglass frames
are made from plastic other than acetate material which the glue would hold
together well. The other problem you face is getting the broken edges to
hold; the lenses are usually edged a little bigger than the opening so that
when the frame is heated up and stretches to insert the lens, then the frame
cools and contracts around the lens.
Take it to a reputable eyeglass person and let them give you your
options.The part that's broken may be able to be replaced if the frame is
still in production.
If you think this is a DIY then I'd get ahold of a dremel drill with a
small bit and drill small holes through the good parts of the frame near the
edges of the break. Then sew it together with some clear fishing line or
thread that matches the color of the frame. Almost invisible repair.
The trick with any super glue is that once opened, a tube loses it's
"super" pretty quickly. Opened super glue simply doesn't keep very
long. Open a fresh tube and it will hold your glasses together.
