Make Sure To Maintain Your Glasses

While wearing glasses instead of contacts may shave a few minutes off your morning routine, it’s important to remember they’re not completely maintenance-free.

If you’re hoping to prolong the life of your favorite eyewear, there are a couple of simple steps you can take to make sure they look and feel their best.

Keep Your Glasses Clean

Cleaning your glasses daily is the best way to keep them feeling fresh and new. Not only will this prevent your frames from wearing over time, but keeping your lenses clear allows you to benefit from the full power of your prescription. To clean your lenses, you should…

  1. Wash and dry your hands. Clean your hands of any dirt, debris, or anything else that may transfer to your lenses while you clean them.
  2. Gently rinse your glasses under lukewarm water. This removes any dust and debris that may potentially scratch your lenses during the cleaning process.
  3. Apply a small drop of lotion-free dishwashing liquid to each lens. If your dish soap is particularly concentrated, add the liquid to the tips of your fingers instead. Avoid dishwashing liquid with lotion as this can leave residue on your lenses.
  4. Gently rub both sides of the lenses and all parts of your frames. Make sure to get all the nooks and crannies and rid the nose pads and earpieces of any excess oil and debris.
  5. Rinse your glasses thoroughly. Be mindful not to leave any soap behind as this can leave smudges on your lenses.
  6. Shake off excess water and dry with a lint-free towel. Use a lint-free cotton towel or a microfiber cloth to ensure you don’t leave any scratches as you dry your lenses.

You can also use special lens cleaners that can be found in your optometrist’s office along with a microfiber cloth. To see how to clean your glasses, check out the video below!

Whichever method is best for you, be sure to avoid cleaning your glasses with tissues, paper towels, or the hem of your shirt as these materials are far too abrasive and can leave microscopic scratches on your lenses.

Handle With Care

Although eyeglasses are made from durable materials, they are still at risk of damage if not handled carefully. Habits such as wearing your glasses on top of your head or removing them with one hand can misalign your frames. Everyone loves a dramatic glasses removal, but it isn’t doing your frames any favors.

When you’re not wearing your glasses, be sure to store them in a case to avoid scratches or other damage. Never put them in a bag or purse without proper protection.

We’ll Help Keep An Eye On Your Frames

Your glasses may bend out of shape over time due to normal use, but don’t worry! To keep your frames fitting like new, simply bring them to our office to have them adjusted at your earliest convenience. And if you’d like to try something new, we’d love to help you choose frames that fit your unique style.

We’re ready to help you look and feel your best.
