Proper Lens Care Instructions

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 they 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 eyecare professional. Never use glass cleaner or other household cleaners. Avoid all chemicals including hairspray, perfume, and cologne, which are harmful to eyeglass lenses.

Next, dry your lenses with a soft, lint-free cloth. You may also use a microfiber cloth specially designed for your eyewear. Never use facial tissue or paper towel as they will scratch your lenses. Finally, never leave your eyeglasses in direct sunlight or in a hot car. The heat can damage your lenses as well as your eyeglass frames. Additionally, never leave your eyeglasses facing downward. Always keep them in a case when not in use.

Remember that you should never use commercial cleaners on your lenses. Talk to us about the best way to care for your eyewear and we’ll be happy to make suggestions on products we recommend.

At our practice, we’re committed to helping you care for your eyes and your eyewear! Learn more with this video on eyeglass lens care.
