Top Tips to Care for Your Glasses or Sunglasses

You have invested a lot of time in choosing your beautiful glasses.  We know that you will want to clean them frequently in order to keep them in the best possible condition.  Here are some great additional cleaning tips that will help prolong the life of your eyewear.

Washing – Try to rinse your glasses off with water before wiping or cleaning them. Even tiny particles of dust or dirt can settle on your lens, and if you wipe those around on a dry lens, it can be abrasive.

Spray carefully – If you’re going to use a chemical, its best to use sprays or cleansers that are specifically made to clean eyeglass lenses. Try to avoid household cleaners, where possible, because these chemicals may contain alcohol which can damage any coating that is on the lens.

Use the right cloth – Avoid using paper towels or tissues to dry your lenses. All of these materials, regardless of how soft they are on your skin, have a textured surface and can easily scratch your lenses.

Handling your eyewear – It’s best to hold your frames by gripping the piece that crosses the bridge of the nose. This will keep you from accidently bending the frame while you clean. Bent glasses can negatively affect the way you see out of your glasses and can feel uncomfortable. 

Storage – When you’re not wearing them try to store your glasses in a suitable case or pouch. This isn’t just a great way to keep dust and dirt away from your eyeglasses, but it also protects your specs from getting scratched, bent or broken.

Place carefully – Don’t lay your glasses lens down. This can result in scratches on your lenses which, unfortunately, cannot be removed.

Follow these great tips, and we are sure you’ll never want to leave your beautifully clean spectacles or sunglasses behind.
