Looking After Your Glasses
We recognise that buying new glasses can be a considerable investment and you want your glasses to perform well for their entire lifespan, simply following our simple guides below will help ensure your glasses stay in tip-top condition.
Cleaning Your Glasses
- Use a soft, microfiber cloth to clean your lenses. We’ll give you a new complimentary cloth with your new glasses, and should you like a spare one we also stock a variety of patterned cloths.
- Use a good-quality lens cleaning spray every day to remove grease/fingerprints from your glasses. Never use household cleaning products as these can ruin coated lenses.
- Gently, rub the lenses in a circular motion to wipe the cleaning solution across the surface of the lens.
- Keep gently wiping until the solution has evaporated (this may take longer with non-alcoholic lens cleaning solutions).
- If there are nose pads on your lenses, clean these carefully with cotton bud wetted in lens cleaning solution for very stubborn dirt and debris. We can change nose-pads in a matter of minutes if they get a little worn!
Things to Remember When Handling Your Glasses
- Avoid touching your lenses with your fingers.
- Avoid using polishes on your lenses, this could scratch them.
- If you’re using a dry cloth, don’t rub or press too hard on the lenses.
- Avoid using tissues or paper towels to clean the lenses as fibres will be left on the lenses and will scratch them.
- Any screws on the frames should be checked regularly and tightened before cleaning.
- Avoid sleeping with your glasses on as this can bend/break the frame.
- Ensure that your lenses are not face-down when setting them on any surface.
- Always store your glasses in their protective case.
- Use both hands when putting on or taking off your glasses.
