Adjusting memory metal (titanium) glasses frames

I recently picked up a few pairs of cheap prescription glasses from zenni optical. I've been happy with them in the past, and the same goes for the most recent batch.

One pair I ordered is memory metal/titanium-nickel. This is the type of frame that allows you to bend it w/o breaking. I need to make some adjustments in order for the frame to fit properly, but if you bend it, it just bends right back.

How do I go about adjusting these frames? heat?

Clearly, I can't take them to the store since I ordered them online.

The glasses didnt come with any reading material that would specify how to adjust them?

nope, it's pretty barebones. I sent an email off to customer service but I was hoping for a faster response here.

Actually most eyeware stores will allow you to bring in any frame and they'll adjust the frame for a nominal fee. I know lenscrafters does this. I had frames made by a local eye doctor, broke them when I was on a trip (nose pad or something stupid) and lenscrafter's at a nearby mall fixed them for like $20.00.

It just seems silly to go to lenscrafters or something when I suspect they're just going to take a pair of pliers to the frame or something..

I really just need to know what the "trick" is for adjusting the memory frames. Someone else suggested holding them in the desired position for a long period of time, maybe i'll try that. Bending them certainly appears to do nothing.

I know with traditional frames, the eyeglass techs sometimes put the frame into the bucket of glass BBs that is heated up, to warm up the frame to become a bit more malleable. I don't know if that process works for those titanium frames.

titanium glasses

hi:
The same thing happened to me, I just received my pair from Zenni and the titanium glasses are a bit loose at the temples. Did you solve your issue? Would you mind sharing it here?
Thank you
Mario
