I'm a recent expatriate to the Netherlands (specifically, Amsterdam). My eyeglasses got sort of bent, and I need to try and fix the frame and/or replace it. I went to one shop when this happened to me and they said they were worried they might break because a joint was cracked, so they didn't do much.
So, I'm looking for someplace which would be brave and skilled enough to do delicate work on a potentially-cracked frame joint, but wise enough to not recklessly risk it. At the same time I should probably get a spare frame in case this one really breaks.
I noticed there are optician shop networks, and there are smaller opticians/optometrists, and I'm wondering how to choose. Back home I would go to someone I trust who sold me my current frame - nearly 10 years ago, actually - but here I have no idea. Also, I'm not sure how I can check price ranges for glass frames, since there seems to be so much variety.
- In case it matters, the eyeglasses are uni-focal. The frame is by 'REPLAY'.
