You would never think that many of these simple habits are actually damaging your eye glasses over time. Cleaning the lenses with the wrong products can create tiny scratches on the glass and removing your glasses incorrectly can eventually bend the frame.

We have put down 5 easy tips that will help you taking care of your glasses:

 

  • Never clean your lenses with your shirt, paper or dirty pads, the tiny dust particles in these fabrics will scratch the lenses rather than clean them. Always wash the lenses with cold water and delicate soap, you can dry them after with a microfibre cloth, even better, you could get a specific lens cleaning spry from your optician. If you don’t have any of these products with you, try to blow on the lenses instead!

 

  •  Try not to take your glasses off with one hand, this will bend the frame over time, always use two, but If you are first compelled to take your glasses off with one hand, then you should do it from the center of the frame where the bridge is and not pull on one side.

 

  • Leaving them on your car dashboard is not a good idea, especially if it is really hot outside. The heat can in fact damage plastic and acetate frames.

 

  • Take your glasses off when opening the oven, draining pasta or vegetables: the hot steam can damage your frame and lenses.

 

  • Protect your glasses when using hair spry, perfumes or other chemicals that could damage them.
