TQ Diamonds, located in the heart of the Midwest (Madison, Wisconsin), is pleased to offer eyeglass and sunglass repair with the advanced technology of our laser welder. Since 2003, we have fixed thousands of eyeglass frames with a 99% success rate.
The Laser Welder can repair virtually any break on almost any type of metal, including Titanium. With this awesome new technology, solder and a torch are no longer needed. The Laser simply shoots a beam of light, which actually welds the two pieces together producing little to no heat. A filler of gold, platinum, silver or titanium wire is then used in the Laser to fill the groove where the two broken pieces were joined. A laser weld is eighty-six percent stronger than a traditional solder. In addition, with the laser, TQ Diamonds can fix breaks that wouldn't be possible with solder, such as Titanium (which cannot take heat), glasses that have a finish, or glasses with a plastic bottom to hold the lens in place.
We are now offering mail-in repairs so that we can service you no matter where you're located! With skilled laser technicians working 6 days per week, we are able to offer same day shipping if we receive your glasses by noon. At just $45 with free shipping, this is definitely less expensive than getting new glasses! In addition, we give you a 30-day warranty on the weld. If it doesn't hold, simply send your glasses back to us for a second repair.
We will send your glasses back via USPS First Class Mail at our own expense. We do not provide insurance, but offer it to you for an additional cost. Please refer to the order form for insurance pricing. Since eyeglasses are generally very expensive items, we highly recommend that you insure your package! We are not responsible for glasses that are lost or broken in the mail.

Laser is an acronym for "Light Amplification by the Stimulated Emission of Radiation" which produces a sharp, focused light beam that melts a very small area of metal. The benefit of this technology is that very little heat is generated at the weld point, allowing users to easily weld .5 to 1.0mm (.020" - .040") away from the most complicated and intricate component parts without damaging heat sensitive materials.
Operators hold parts in their hands while viewing the application through a stereo-microscope in the welding chamber. Internal cross-hair allows the operator to easily align and weld the parts at the correct location.
Crafford-LaserStar Technologies' development of the "free-moving" concept enable users to eliminate costly fixturing devices, benefit from pin-point accuracy, increase the range of assembly and repair applications, and minimize the potential hazards of heat damage. The resulting weld is considerably stronger than a traditional solder joint.
Laser welding is ideal for a wide range of eyewear repair applications. Fast, clean and considerably stronger than a traditional solder joint, laser welding produces damage-free results with minimal discoloration.
