Caring for Your Eyewear

cleanliness is key

Regular cleaning is crucial to keeping your glasses free from dirt, smudges, and debris. Use a gentle lens cleaner or mild soap and lukewarm water to clean your glasses. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive materials that can damage the lenses or frames. Pat dry with a clean, lint-free cloth to prevent scratches. Remember to clean your glasses daily or as needed to maintain optimal vision and clarity.


Handle your glasses with clean hands and a gentle touch. Avoid gripping them by the lenses, as this can lead to smudges, fingerprints, or even accidental lens damage. Instead, hold your glasses by the temples (arms) and place them on and off your face with both hands. This reduces the risk of bending or misaligning the frames, ensuring a proper fit and alignment over time.


When you're not wearing your glasses, it's important to store them correctly to protect them from damage. Use a sturdy eyeglass case to keep your glasses safe from scratches, dust, and accidental impacts. Avoid placing your glasses face down on hard surfaces or leaving them exposed to extreme temperatures, as this can potentially warp or damage the frames and lenses.


Protect your glasses from harsh conditions that can compromise their integrity. Avoid exposing your glasses to excessive heat, direct sunlight, and chemicals. Heat can cause the frames to warp or the lens coatings to deteriorate. Direct sunlight can fade or discolor certain frame materials. Chemicals found in household cleaning products, hair sprays, or cosmetics can damage lens coatings or frames, so it's best to remove your glasses before using these substances.


Visit your optician periodically to ensure your glasses fit properly and have any necessary adjustments made. Over time, the frames may require tightening or reshaping to maintain a comfortable fit. Additionally, have your lenses checked for any signs of wear or scratches that may affect your vision. Routine maintenance will help extend the lifespan of your glasses and ensure optimal performance.
