Eyeglass Care and Maintenance

Congratulations on your new glasses! Today’s advanced lens materials and coatings are used to optimize your vision, reduce bothersome glare and reflections and protect your eyes from harmful UV rays. Teamed up with frames made using advanced plastics, high-quality metals and great style, your new glasses are well worth the time it takes to properly care for them.

Do's and Don'ts

Do always wet your lenses before wiping or cleaning them, to prevent micro-scratches from dust particles that may be on them.

Don’t wipe your lenses when they are dry.

Do use the special micro-fiber cloth supplied by your eyecare practitioner to wipe or dry your lenses.

Don’t use the hem of your shirt or a paper towel.

Do use a liberal amount of liquid eyeglass cleaner on both sides of the lenses to get any dirt or dust to lift off the lens surface.

Don’t use dish soap, detergents or regular glass cleaner because they can damage the lens coatings, and may leave a film.

Do run your lenses under lukewarm water if no eyeglass lens cleaner is available.

Don’t use other liquids like alcohol or saliva.

Do wash the special cloth on a regular basis to keep it clean and free of lint or dirt.

Don’t put the special cloth into the dryer; allow it to air-dry.

Do use a good-quality soft paper towel if no cleaning cloth is available.

Don’t use a paper towel made of recycled materials because they can scratch the lenses.

Do blot the lenses dry and avoid rubbing them if possible.

Don’t use tissue because some have lotions or oils embedded, and can leave lint behind.

Do keep your frames straight and comfortable on your face by visiting periodically for an adjustment.

Don’t allow anyone without proper training to handle or adjust your glasses.

Enjoy your new glasses! They look great!
