Did you know that cleaning your glasses with your shirt can scratch the lenses? Let’s discuss how to safely clean your glasses.
Even though most of these items are typically what you have on hand, they shouldn’t be used for cleaning your glasses. EyeCare Associates does NOT recommend using:
Window / Glass cleaner solution
Shirts, blankets, or bath towel
Instead, USE these products:
Lens cleaning solution
Lens cleaning wipes
Soap and warm water
After cleaning your glasses, always make sure to store them in a case.
Apart from cleaning your glasses, safely storing them in a case when they’re not being used is also a way to prevent scratches. In addition, this further protects them from dirt, grime, and germs.
Considering buying a new pair of glasses? Talk with your doctor at your next eye exam to learn the benefits of scratch resistant lens coatings.
