Avoid Direct Sunlight

You probably wear your glasses throughout most of the day. But if you ever need to take them off, don’t let them sit in direct sunlight! On a sunny day, the heat from the sun can warp the frame of your glasses and damage the lenses. Instead, place them somewhere the sunlight can’t reach them.

Clean Them Carefully

Now and then, your lenses may get smudged, or you may want to disinfect your frames. When cleaning your eyeglasses, you can’t use harsh chemicals or rough paper towels because you’ll risk scratching the lenses. Instead, use a microfiber cloth and a cleaner specifically formulated for glasses.

Store Them in a Safe Place

When you take off your glasses, you should store them in a safe place where they aren’t at risk of getting hit by sunlight or knocked down and broken. Ideally, a case is the best place to store them because it’s designed for eyeglass protection. If you need a glasses case, visit our eyecare center to pick one out.

Don’t Rest Them on Your Head

For many people, it’s a habit to push their glasses on top of their heads when they need a break from wearing them. But did you know this can stretch and warp the frame or cause the lenses to pop out? Break this habit if you’re guilty of it to avoid damaging your eyeglasses.

By following these simple tips, your glasses are sure to last for years. When it’s time to get a new pair of eyeglasses, visit Visions Optique in Scottsdale to see our latest selection.
