    I'm not following your description. It sounds like something that can't be fixed. However, if it is what people in the industry call a semi-rimless frame and the nylon cord is broken, it is an easy repair than any eyeglass place can do. We don't even charge to do it. I attached a video showing how to do it. It is a lot easier to do your 100th one than it is to do your first. Fishing line works but the special stuff that comes with glasses works better.

    Can't be done. You will have to buy new frames.

    If they're made of plastic you're going to have to get a new frame however if they're made of wire they're pretty easy for you to fix. Get yourself some very fine sandpaper and sandpaper both ends of the break to remove any outer coating which is on The wire. Get a good soldering gun and position the glasses where you can make a good soldering joint. And using a good quality rosin core solder solder The wire back together leaving a tiny amount of wire overlapping the other wire. If you solder it correctly it will give you a good permanent repair and you can buff the repair with a little Moto tool so it won't even be noticeable

      Ordinary electrical solder is far too soft and has no strength. A structural repair to a metal frame requires either silver solder or brazing. Not usually worthwhile on “frameless” frames as there’s too little contact area and the repair usually looks like a big ugly blob.
