How to maintain eyeglasses?
Prescription glasses are one of our big investments. One perfect pair of glasses normally takes much time to ensure frame style, material, color or other details. So it's necessary for us to care for them in case of damage due to oversight, neglect or incorrect cleaning.
Then, follow these guidelines to clean, store and wear your glasses in a proper way.
For daily basic cleaning, adopt methods below:
• Spray the lens with a cleaning solution before wiping them. Dry lenses are more likely to be scratched by dust and other particles. Do not use spit or your breath to wet your lenses, as spit can leave bacteria on the glass and breath does not provide enough moisture.
• Use a microfiber cloth as your primary cleaning tool. Avoid abrasive cleaning cloths like paper towels or clothing.
For deep cleaning, adopt methods below:
• Rinse your eyeglasses in tap water that’s approximately room temperature or a little warmer.
• Use a gentle cleaning solution to wash the lenses. Apply only a few drops to avoid leaving any soap residue on the lenses.
• Rinse the lenses to remove any soap and inspect any missed spots. If the glasses are still dirty, repeat the steps above. If the glass looks clean, use a lint-free towel to remove most of the water.
Certain types of eyeglasses, such as pairs with specialized lens coatings, may require specific care. Always follow the cleaning guidelines provided by your optometrist.
Eyeglass lenses can easily get scratched if you fail to store them somewhere safe. How you store your eyeglasses when you aren’t wearing them can determine how well the lenses and frame hold up over time. This isn't just a great way to keep dust and dirt away from your eyeglasses, but it also protects your specs from getting bent or broken.
Always store your glasses in a clean eyeglasses case, and NEVER place them on a table or counter with the lenses facing down. If you don't have a glasses case handy, place your glasses upside down with the temples open — somewhere safe, where they won't get knocked off a table or countertop.
