Three Ways You Can Protect Your Eyeglasses

Protecting Your EyeglassesYour eyeglasses are one of the biggest investments you will make in terms of vision care, which is why it is important to take the necessary steps to protect them. You wear them everyday, so avoiding having your glasses scratched or bent is impossible, but you can preserve the clarity of your lenses and the durability of your frames by following these tips.

  1. Properly clean your glasses. It can be tempting to reach for your shirt to give your glasses a quick wipe if they are dirty, but we urge you to resist. Instead, rinse any dust or dirt off your lenses with warm water. You may also use a drop of non-citrus dishwashing liquid. After they are rinsed, only use microfiber lens cleaning cloths and lens cleaning solutions to dry off your glasses. This will keep your protective coating intact.
  2. Make sure they are in a case when you are not wearing them. Glasses can so easily be sat on or knocked off a table when they are just sitting around. Making sure they are in a case when you are not wearing them will ensure they are protected at all times.
  3. Keep them secure during physical activity. When you are running or playing a sport, wear a sports strap around your glasses to make sure they don’t fall off while you are engaging in physical activity. If you frequently play sports, consider investing in a pair of contact lenses to better fit your lifestyle.
