Glasses are more than just accessories. They're often an extension of our style and personality, but above all, they help us see the world with clarity. Yet, despite their importance, we sometimes tend to neglect their care. Here's a practical guide to keeping your glasses in tip-top condition and ensuring clear, comfortable vision. 

Clean your glasses regularly

Dust, fingerprints and other impurities can accumulate on the lenses of your glasses, compromising your vision. So, it's essential to clean them regularly. Here's how to do it: 

  • Use a soft, clean microfiber cloth to wipe the lenses gently.
  • Avoid using rough cloths that could scratch the lenses.
  • If your glasses are particularly dirty, use mild soap and lukewarm water to clean them.
  • Then rinse thoroughly and dry with a clean cloth.
  • Avoid abrasive products

Using household products or multi-purpose cleaners to clean your glasses may be tempting, but this can damage lenses and coatings. Avoid products containing alcohol, ammonia or other abrasive substances. Instead, opt for cleaning solutions specially designed for eyewear, available from IRIS. 

Store your eyewear properly

When you're not wearing your glasses, storing them properly is essential to avoid scratches and damage. Use a rigid protective case to protect your glasses from knocks and scratches when you're not using them. Avoid putting them face down, as this could scratch them.

Make adjustments if necessary

Over time, the temples of your eyewear may become loose or deformed, making them uncomfortable to wear. If you notice that your glasses no longer fit properly, visit your optician to adjust them professionally. Don't try to do it yourself, as you could damage your glasses.

Protect your glasses from the sun

UV rays can damage not only your eyes but also your glasses. Invest in UV-coated lenses to protect your eyes from sun damage and extend your glasses' life. 

By following these simple tips, you can extend the life of your glasses and ensure clear, comfortable vision. Visit your optician regularly to check the condition of your glasses. Your eyes deserve the best, so take good care of them!
