Cleaning & Care
Protect your frame and lenses
Common mistakes that can destroy your eyeglasses.
DON'T use your shirt, tee shirt or other cloth to clean your glasses, especially when the lenses are dry. This can scratch your lenses.
DON'T use any cleaner that contains alcohol as it can burn your beautiful acetate frames. Alcohol is for beer glasses not for eye glasses!
DON'T use saliva to wet your lenses. (Ugh, do we even have to explain why?)
DON'T use household glass or surface cleaners to clean your eyeglasses. These products have ingredients that can damage eyeglass lenses and coatings, such as scratch resistant coating and anti-reflective coating.
DON'T use paper towels, napkins, tissues or toilet paper to clean your lenses. These can scratch or smear your lenses or leave them full of lint.
DON'T try to "buff away" a scratch in your lenses. This only makes the situation worse.
PLEASE DO - A daily rinse under warm water with a dot of mild dish soap will keep them happy. Air dry or lightly pad with a micro fiber cloth.
Get some lens wipes and a microfiber cloth from your optical shop.
Oh, and please please please do try to keep you eyeglasses in a case, not in a cup holder or the bottom of your bag! :-)
