I have one lense screw which keeps backing out, which in turn my one lens
will pop out. I know the easiest way to fix them would to get new frames,
unfortunately I'm one of those that must meet other obligations first. Any
ideas how to keep the screw from backing out? I tried new screws, but even
those back out.
You have to work quickly to pull this off. Add a drop of super glue to the
hole screw in the screw and let it sit for 30 minutes or so before wearing.
I swear it works but if you get the glue on the lens you are the screwed
A small bottle of Loctite brand thread secure stuff will do the trick
well. Til then you could run the screw in and coat the screw head with
some fingernail polish to keep it from moving for a day or two.
(lacquer paint or whatever)

Go back to where you bought the glasses and ask them to fix them. I've been
wearing eyeglasses for over 50 years and was never asked to pay for a minor
repair or adjustment.
Or put a tiny dab of glue on top of the screw.
Of course! Use any thread locker (Locktite or Permatex) and
just put a tiny amount on the threads before tightening. As
a woodworker you should already have a variety of materials
available. Shellac is a common material used lock screws in
equipment as well as paint; white glue, carpenters glue, any
finish (lacquer, varnish, etc.) can also be used. The
simplest, cheapest, and fastest fix is probably fingernail
polish (color is your choice).

As suggested, go to your optician and have them fix the problem. If
they try to charge you, find another optician.
I have quite thick lenses and have had the same problem. Clear lacquer
(nail polish) worked once but was not reliable enough. A special screw with
a nylon core worked very well but the last two times I need new lenses, the
optician used a longer screw that can take a nut. I've never had a problem
with these screws. If I think they are loosening, I just tighten them up
