If you wear glasses – whether it’s all day or just for certain tasks like reading – you know how irritating it can be to have a smudge on them. In addition, because prescription glasses are an investment, you’ll want to take care of them properly to ensure that they last you as long as possible. Pinnacle Eye Group of Lambertville, MI wants you to be able to use your glasses and enjoy clear vision, so here are a few tips on cleaning and caring for them.
Cleaning glasses is a simple task. It begins with clean hands. Use dishwashing liquid or a lotion-free soap to clean your hands of any grime, dirt, or other things that could be transferred to your glasses. To clean the glasses, first run them under a stream of lukewarm water. Mix a drop of dish soap with warm water to create a lather and use this to clean the frames, lenses, and nose pads of your glasses. Rinse them again with warm water. Gently shake off excess water and dry the glasses with a clean, lint-free cloth.
Simple mistakes are often made when cleaning glasses. Do not:
Doing any of these could cause damage to the lens coatings or to the lenses themselves.
Taking care of your glasses benefits your eye health as it prevents them from straining to see clearly. It also helps to protect the investment of getting costly prescription glasses. If you need a new pair of glasses or just need a check-up, Pinnacle Eye Group is available in Lambertville, MI to provide quality eye care.
