Did you know 80 percent of lens scratches occur by cleaning eyewear incorrectly? Protect your investment by following these proper lens care instructions. Taking care of your lenses can be the difference between seeing clearly for the life of your eyeglasses or having to replace them early due to excessive scratching and improper maintenance.
Many anti-reflective or non-glare treatments help protect against dust, debris, oil, water, and smudges. These can help your glasses stay clean longer but also need special care. Begin by rinsing your lenses with warm water and a mild soap without additives. You may also use an approved lens cleaning solution provided by your eye care professional. Never use glass cleaner or other household cleaners. Avoid all chemicals, including hairspray, perfume, and cologne, which are harmful to eyeglass lenses.
