Default Locktite and Eyeglasses

I have a pair of eyeglasses where the screws holding in the lenses keep coming loose.
This is very scary since the screws are on the bottom of the frame.
If they come out they are gone; especially if I can't use my glasses to search for them.
I have considered using the blue locktite I use on my planes to secure the screws.
What are your ideas?

Thanks,

Depending on the color of the frames either black electrical tape or white medical tape wrapped around the corners!

I wouldn't use much loctite as you may never get them out or worse it may ooze into the hinges. Try putting a tiny drop of clear nail polish on the screw or on the top after you tighten it up.

Lock Tight and some kinds of plastic are not compatible, if in plastic do some checking on compatibility.

Use something like Canopy Glue, RC56, or Walmart's Tacky Glue.Won't attack plastic and allows the screws to be removed if the frame needs adjusting. I use tacky glue on my servo arm screws and they don't come loose until I want them to.
