Maintenance Tips for Your Eyewear

Keeping your glasses in pristine condition is just as important as staying stylish. Here are some maintenance tips to prolong the life and performance of your eyewear:

Protecting and Storing

When you’re not donning your specs, proper storage is key to avoiding damage. Always place your glasses in a protective case, preferably a hard shell one, when not in use. Avoid leaving your glasses in areas prone to temperature extremes, such as the dashboard of your car, as this can warp the frame and damage lens coatings.

Regular Adjustments

Over time, your glasses may become misaligned. Regular adjustments by a glasses professional, such as an optician, can ensure they fit comfortably and correctly. This not only maintains the shape and integrity of your frames but also ensures that the lenses are positioned properly for your vision needs. Additionally, if you notice any loose screws or components, address them promptly to prevent loss or further damage.

Lens Treatments and Coatings

Lens coatings, such as scratch-resistant and anti-reflective coatings, are designed to extend the life of your lenses and enhance your vision. While these coatings are durable, they still require careful handling. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive materials to clean your lenses as these can strip away protective layers.
