Proper Lens Care Tips

Did you know that 80% of lens scratches happen when cleaning eyewear incorrectly? To safeguard your investment and ensure clear vision throughout your eyeglasses' lifespan, follow these essential lens care instructions.

Many lenses come with anti-reflective or non-glare treatments that guard against dust, debris, oil, water, and smudges. While these treatments prolong lens cleanliness, they require specific care. Start by rinsing your lenses with warm water and a mild soap without additives. Alternatively, you can use a lens cleaning solution recommended by your eye care professional—never opt for glass cleaners or household cleaners. Steer clear of chemicals like hairspray, perfume, and cologne, as they can harm your eyeglass lenses.

Gentle Drying for Scratch-Free Results

After washing, dry your lenses using a soft, lint-free cloth or a microfiber cloth designed for eyewear. Avoid facial tissue or paper towels, as these materials can scratch your lenses. Importantly, never expose your eyeglasses to direct sunlight or leave them in a hot car, as the heat can damage both the lenses and frames. When not in use, store your eyeglasses in a case, ensuring they're never left facing downward.
