How To Remove Peeling Lenses From Persol Sunglasses

Removing peeling lenses from Persol sunglasses can be a delicate process to avoid damaging the frame or the replacement lenses you plan to install. Here's a general guideline for removing peeling lenses from your Persol sunglasses:


Materials you may need:

  • Replacement lenses (if you intend to replace them)
  • Small Phillips-head screwdriver
  • Soft cloth or microfiber cloth
  • Tweezers (optional)
  • Heat source (optional, like a hairdryer)



  • Prepare your workspace: Find a clean, well-lit workspace with enough space to lay out your sunglasses and tools. Use a soft cloth or microfiber cloth to protect the lenses and frame from scratches.
  • Remove any screws: Many sunglasses, including Persol, have small screws that hold the lenses in place. Look for these screws on the inner side of the frame near the lenses, typically at the corners or along the top edge. Use a small Phillips-head screwdriver to carefully remove these screws. Keep them in a safe place as you'll need them to attach the new lenses.
  • Apply heat (if needed): If the lenses are stubborn and seem to be glued or sealed to the frame, you can gently apply heat to soften the adhesive. Use a hairdryer on a low setting to warm the area around the lenses. Be cautious not to overheat and damage the frame or lenses. Heat for a minute or so, then attempt to gently pry the lens away from the frame.
  • Pry the lens away: Once the adhesive is softened or if there's no adhesive, carefully start to pry the peeling lens away from the frame. You can use your fingers, but be gentle to avoid breaking the lens or bending the frame. If necessary, you can use a pair of tweezers to get a better grip.
  • Continue to detach the lens: Work your way around the lens, gradually peeling it away from the frame. Take your time and be patient, as forcing it may cause damage.
  • Clean the frame: After you've successfully removed the peeling lens, clean any remaining adhesive or residue from the frame. You can use a gentle adhesive remover or rubbing alcohol on a soft cloth to do this.
  • Attach new lenses (if applicable): If you have replacement lenses, carefully insert them into the frame and secure them with the screws you removed earlier. Make sure the lenses are positioned correctly and tighten the screws snugly but not too tight to avoid damaging the frame or the lenses.
  • Inspect and adjust: Examine the sunglasses to ensure that the new lenses are securely in place and that there are no gaps or issues with the fit.


By following these steps, you should be able to remove peeling lenses from your Persol sunglasses without causing further damage. If you're uncomfortable with any part of this process, it's a good idea to consult a professional optician or a sunglasses repair service to ensure a safe and proper repair or replacement.
