Progressive Eyecare is your convenient one-stop shop for high-quality eyewear. With proper use and cleaning, our exquisite eyeglasses can provide you many years’ worth of performance. In today’s post, your reliable optometrist shares some helpful tips for handling and caring for your eyeglasses:
Wash Your Hands Thoroughly Before Handling Your Eyewear
Your hands may contain dust, dirt, and microorganisms that can be transferred to your eyeglasses. This can damage your lenses and potentially cause eye infections. This is why it’s essential to wash your hands before touching your eyewear. We advise using antimicrobial soaps when doing so. Use a lint-free cloth to dry your hands completely afterward.
Clean Your Specs Thoroughly
First, rinse your eyeglasses under a gentle stream of tap water. The continuous water flow helps remove surface debris. Next, use a pea-sized amount of dishwashing liquid to clean your lenses and frames. Then, rinse off the soap suds completely and use a lint-free towel to absorb excess water. Let your specs air-dry.
Store Your Glasses in Their Case When Not in Use
We recommend keeping your eyeglasses in their case whenever you’re not wearing them. This helps prevent losing them or accidentally leaving them somewhere they could be damaged.
With these helpful tips, you’ll be sure to enjoy your specs and benefit from the sharper vision they provide for many years. Apart from eyeglasses, we also offer contact lenses to help improve your visual acuity.
