Taking Care of Your Eyewear

Your eyewear is more than just an accessory; it is an investment in your vision and the ability to process the world around you. It is important to take care of your frames and lenses. Although any lens material will scratch over time depending on what it is exposed to and what accidents may occur, here are some cleaning tips that will help keep your lenses scratch-free as long as possible.

PrintClean your glasses daily and avoid wiping your lenses when they are dry. Begin by rinsing them in lukewarm water. This will remove the dirt and grit that sticks to your lenses and can scratch them when rubbed. Then, use dishwashing liquid or a lens cleaner to clean your lenses. Rinse and then wipe dry with a lint-free cotton towel or a microfiber cloth. 

Do not use kleenex, toilet paper or other paper products to dry or clean your glasses. These can scratch your lenses and even small scratches can impact your vision.

Always keep your eyewear in its case (if you have one) or if you don’t, rest your eyewear “lenses up” in order to avoid scratches.
