Learning how to take care of your eyeglasses will help you keep them in excellent shape for a long time, allowing you to get the most of your investment. A good pair of eyeglasses will correct your vision and also act as a great fashion accessory. Follow these steps to keep your eyeglasses clean:
Rinse Your Glasses
Remove all traces of dirt, grime or lotion from your hands before you touch your glasses by washing your hands thoroughly. Next, rinse your glasses under a gentle stream of lukewarm tap water to remove debris and dust that may have accumulated on the lenses.
Use lotion-free dishwashing liquid to clean your eyeglasses. Since most dishwashing soap is concentrated, you only need a drop or two. Apply the drops to your fingertips and gently rub the lenses. Pay special attention to temples, nose pads and the areas where skin oil accumulates. As an eye exam and eyeglasses expert, we recommend rinsing your glasses thoroughly and making sure they are free of soap residue before moving on to the next step.
Dry Them With a Microfiber Cloth
You should use a microfiber cloth to dry your eyeglasses to avoid scratching the lenses. Never use shirt ends or paper towels for this purpose because they are too rough. Dry your glasses thoroughly and inspect them for any streaks or smudges before wearing them. Wipe away any remaining streaks using a dry microfiber cloth.
