Default An expensive screw

Last week I was on holiday in Gran Canaria. Went to the beach and found one of the lenses to my sunglasses had popped out, went to refit it and the screw was missing.
Easy job of an opticians but you don't find them at the beach.
Cheapest sunglasses I could find, £40

Now home I'll pop to spec savers and they will do it for pennies if not free.

Superglue would have sorted it cheaper, only problem is you have to hold on to your glasses for the remainder of your holiday as superglue only works on skin
