How to clean your new glasses


All of us at one point or another have grabbed the corner of our shirt to “clean” our glasses. Using our shirts or napkins can potentially scratch the lenses. If Here are a few steps to ensure proper maintenance of your new glasses.

  1. Wash and dry your hands.

Before cleaning your eyeglasses, wash your hands thoroughly. Use lotion-free soap or dishwashing liquid and a clean, microfiber cloth.

  1. Rinse your glasses under a gentle stream of tap water.

This will remove dust and other debris, which can help avoid scratching your lenses when you’re cleaning them. Avoid hot water, which can damage some lens coatings.

  1. Apply a small drop of dishwashing liquid to each lens.

Most dishwashing liquids are very concentrated, so use only a tiny amount. Use only lotion-free brands.

  1. Gently rub both sides of the lenses and all parts of the frame.

Make sure you clean every part of your glasses, including the nose pads. Both acetate frames such as our ECO frames as well as our titanium OvvO frames can be cleaned the same way.

  1. Rinse both sides of the lenses and the frame.

Failing to remove all traces of soap will cause the lenses to be smeared when you dry them.

  1. Gently shake your glasses to get rid of most of the water on the lenses.

Inspect the lenses carefully to make sure they are clean.

  1. Carefully dry the lenses and frame with a clean, microfiber cloth.

A lint-free microfiber cloth is also a good choice. Make sure the cloth is perfectly clean. Dirt or debris trapped in the fibers of  a towel can scratch your lenses. If you see any scratches make an appointment with us we would be happy to take a look at your lenses.
