1. Rinse

Always rinse your glasses off with water before wiping or cleaning them. Even tiny particles of dust or dirt can settle on your lens, and if you wipe those around on a dry lens, it can be abrasive.

2. Spray Carefully

Use cleaning sprays that are specifically made to clean eyeglass lenses. Never use household cleaners like soaps or any type of liquid soap because it will peel off the coating that is on the lens.

3. Always use Micro Fibre cloth

NEVER use paper towels, tissue, or napkins to dry your lenses.

Don’t use your shirttail or any other paper product like Toilet paper to clean your glasses, especially when the lenses are dry.

4. Store Properly

Store your glasses when you’re not wearing them. Always keep your glasses in a protective glasses case wrapped in microfiber cloth when you are not wearing them.

5. Place Carefully

Don’t place your glasses upside down on a desk or counter or carry them in a pouch. This will cause scratches on them.

6. Wash Often

Washing your glasses at least once a day will keep your lenses in their optimal state. The cleaner your glasses, the less your eyes have to strain to see through smudges, dirt and dust.

Under lukewarm water clean the lenses to rub of the dirt. This keeps protective coating on the lenses intact.

7. Take them off using two hands, instead of one. 

This keeps the ear pieces straight and in the right alignment. Taking them off one-handed stretches them out and makes them loose.

8. Don’t put your glasses on the top of your head.

This can distort the shape, and there’s a greater chance of them falling off and getting damaged that way.

Wear spectacles that provide UV protection

Don’t compromise your eyesight buying low quality eyeglasses.
