Tips to Care for Your Eyeglasses

8 Tips to Care for Your EyeglassesYou invest a lot of time in finding the right pair of eyeglasses. You look for the right frame shape, in a pattern or color that perfectly expresses you. You patiently wait for the lenses to be fitted and for that call telling you that your new eyeglasses are ready for pick up.

Don’t you want to do everything you can to make these glasses last as long as possible?

Tips To Maintain Eyeglasses

Here are some great tips on how to take proper care of your eyeglasses that will help make them last:

Rinse

Always 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, use sprays or cleansers that are specifically made to clean eyeglass lenses.

Air Dry

If you can, allow your glasses to air dry. This is another great way to keep any materials from getting on to your lens. If you can’t set them down to air dry, wipe them down with a soft, clean, lint-free cloth.

Use the Right Cloth

Never use paper towels, tissue, or napkins 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.

Also, refrain from using the tail of your shirt.

Grip Firmly

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. Plus, if your frames are bent out of shape, they’re more likely to feel uncomfortable.

Store Properly

Store your glasses when you’re not wearing them. 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 is just asking for scratched lenses.

Wash Often

Washing your glasses at least once a day will keep your lenses in their optimal state. The cleaner your glasses, the less your eyes have to strain to see through smudges, dirt and dust.
