Spectacle Lens Care
It sounds simple enough, but everyday we unconsciously make the same mistakes when cleaning our spectacles. Here are some "cleaning" tips for your lenses and frames:
However, there are a few points on what NOT to do when cleaning your spectacles:
Unfortunately, there is no "magic" that can eliminate scratches. All lens materials are prone to scratches. Exposure to different environmental factors will also make your lenses susceptible to scratches and cracks. Most lenses have a hard coating embedded onto the lens surface which will minimize the possibility of scratches-however, it will not make it scratch proof!
The trick is to take care of your lenses as outlined above. Also, make use of your spectacle case whenever your spectacles are not being used. Remember that resting your spectacles on the lenses itself, will cause it to scratch. If you do find your lenses are scratched, visit your nearest optometrist for us to assess the extent of the scratches. Sometimes your spectacles just need to be professionally cleaned and adjusted. Remember that your spectacles is the sum of your frame and lenses. Hence, it is wise to maintain the integrity of the frame by using both hands to remove them and not putting them on top of your head which stretches them out.
