Caring for your spectacles
Please find below some tips we find helpful to keep yours and your clients glasses working at their best for longer.
- Take your spectacles off using two hands, instead of one. This will keep the earpieces aligned and avoid stretching them, which could make them loose.
- Do not put spectacles on the top of your head. It could distort the shape.
- Take your spectacles off before you use hairspray, perfume or cologne. As it damages the lenses causing any coatings like antiglare to brake down.
- Keep your spectacles in a case when you are not wearing them. It will keep them from getting scratched.
- Clean your spectacles regularly. A microfiber cleaning cloth can be used to wipe away fingerprints, dirt or dust. Washing your glasses is recommended when they are very dirty.
- How do I wash my spectacles? Using a small amount of hand soap or gentle detergent, clean the lenses with your fingertips. Then rinse them with lukewarm water, pat dry with a soft tissue and finish off with your microfiber cloth.
