Caring For Your Eyewear

Whether it’s a new pair of sunglasses or your prescription eyeglasses all eyewear requires special care. At Q Optical we know how important it is to take care of your eyewear to ensure the best result from them. Here are a few tips on how to keep your glasses well maintained for years to come.

Clean Often– Cleaning your glasses once a day will ensure they are dirt and smudge free, and the cleaner your glasses are the less strain on your eyes to see through them.

Rinse With Water– Before cleaning your glasses rinse them with water to remove any dirt of dust. Dry cleaning will result in scratches from moving around particles of dust that have settled on your lenses. We suggest using warm water to rinse off your glasses before each cleaning.

Get the Right Cleaner– Use a spray or cleaner specifically made for eye glasses, other cleaners such as household cleaners contain ammonia which can damage lenses. Also avoid using spit to wipe down your lenses as it can contain damaging oils.

Air Dry– Let your glasses air dry after cleaning them or if you don’t have time, dry them use the right fabric. Materials like tissue, or paper towels have a rough surface and can scratch the lenses, instead use a clean dry micro fabric cloth.

Store Carefully– Use a hard shell case for glasses, never throw unprotected glasses into a purse or bag. Also never lay your glasses lens down this will cause scratches instead lay them with the lenses up. Avoid leaving glasses in a hot car and never leave them on the dashboard the windshield acts as a magnifying glass and can damage your glasses.
