The Best Way to Clean Your Glasses

The Best Way to Clean Your GlassesNearly 50% of Americans wear corrective glasses, according to the trade group Vision Council. And most of them are guilty of the biggest crime in lens care: Exhaling onto their lenses, then wiping the fog off with their shirt sleeves. But does this really damage your lenses?

Simple Solution

The best way to clean your glasses is to run them under warm water and put a tiny drop of dish washing detergent on the tip of your fingers to create a lather on the lens. Then rinse with warm water, and dry with a clean, soft cotton cloth.

Glass vs. Plastic

Of the 69.1 million Americans who bought prescription spectacles last year, most purchased plastic lenses; glass has gone out of fashion as safety concerns have arisen. Unlike that hard surface, plastic is soft and can scratch easily.

Attempting to clean glasses when dry only exacerbates the problem, since a wet surface is slicker than a dry one.

Reflecting on the Problem

Lenses typically have some form of protective coating and should never come into contact with ammonia, bleach, vinegar or window cleaner. “Those chemicals can break down the coating or just strip them.

Clean Lines

Natural oils from your hands, eyelashes and face can lead to a lot of buildup each day, reducing lenses’ effectiveness.

Whatever you do, don’t use the most handy form of water to clean your lenses.
