How to Care for Your Eyeglasses, Kalispell, Montana

Your eyeglasses are an investment in your eyesight. In order to ensure they continue serving you well, you need to take excellent care of them. The expert eye professionals at Dolan Family Vision in Kalispell, MT, offer ways to keep your eyeglasses in impeccable condition.

5 Top Eyeglass Care Tips

1. Rinse Before Cleaning

Rinsing your glasses off with water before cleaning them will remove tiny particles of dust and dirt that may otherwise scratch them. Afterward, when you use a cleaning cloth and spray cleaner, you won’t have to worry about these bits of debris damaging the glass.

Eyeglasses2. Watch Your Cloth

It’s tempting to reach for your shirtsleeve or a paper towel to clean your glasses, but doing so can seriously damage your lenses. Instead, use a soft, microfiber or cotton cloth . Always avoid washcloths, clothing, napkins, and any other paper based material. If you don’t have the proper cloth on hand, rinse them with water and let them air dry.

3. Store Carefully

Don’t drop your eyeglasses in your vehicle’s cup holder or let them rest on your nightstand unprotected. When you take off your specs, always place them in a protective case. When not on your face, they are in the case. That will help prevent scratches and other damage. 

4. Grip Firmly

Hold your glasses by the nosepiece that connects the two lenses with the front of your lenses facing at you. If you hold them by the temples or frame, you risk bending or breaking them.

5. Visit Your Optician

If your glasses become bent or damaged, always visit your optician as soon as possible. While you may feel like reaching for your pliers and trying to repair them on your own, this can easily cause further damage. Even if you’re well-versed with a mini screwdriver, eyeglasses require highly specialized tools and care.

To keep your eyeglasses in excellent condition, contact the professionals at Dolan Family Vision. For more information about this premier practice, call today at (406) 756-8420 or visit their website
