3 Tips for Maintaining Your Eyeglasses, Greece, New York

Keeping your eyeglasses clean helps you maintain clear and comfortable vision, protect the lenses, and increase the life span of your glasses. And the best part is: keeping them in good shape is easy. Here are a few maintenance tips to get started. 

How to Maintain Your Glasses

1. Wash & Dry Your Lenses 

It's easy to transfer tiny bits of dust, dirt, and other potentially damaging irritants from your hands to your eyeglass lenses. Before cleaning them, wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water and dry them with a clean towel. Then, run your glasses under a steady stream of warm water, gently rubbing both sides of the lenses, the nose bridge, and the arms. Dry the glasses with a clean, soft, lint-free cloth; many opticians will supply a lens-cleaning cloth for free. 

2. Use a Cleaning Solution

eyeglassesAn eyeglass cleaning solution is ideal for hard-to-remove spots of grime, grease, or dirt. Spray on a few pumps of the solution and wipe it away with a clean, lint-free cloth. If your glasses often get dirty when you're out and about, purchase all-in-one eyeglass cleaning wipes; these can help you restore your glasses quickly and easily. 

3. Store Glasses Appropriately

Proper storage is a key component of maintaining your eyeglasses. When not on your face, store them in the case they came in. Keep in mind that harder cases offer better protection than soft cases, especially if you regularly carry your glasses in a purse or bag where they will be jostled around.
