Protecting your lenses against everyday wear and tear is highly important to prolong the life of your eyewear. Whether it’s sunglasses or eyeglasses, keeping your lenses safe from any harm becomes a foremost priority. You may have protective coatings like Anti-Scratch Coating, Anti-Glare Coating, UV Protection Coating or Photochromatic Coating on your eyewear however, they do require some extra care for that lasting appeal.
EyeMyEye’s lens protection guide will give you all the insights you need on this.
Smudges and finger prints are very common on our eyeglasses and sunglasses lenses. If you’re outside or at your workplace, simply keep a microfiber cloth and lens cleaner handy. Squeeze in a few drops of the solution onto your lenses and swipe with the microfiber cloth to clean the same.
You can alternatively use lens cleaning wipes as well that are great in wiping off dust, germs, dirt etc. from your eyewear and its lenses.
Do not make these mistakes while cleaning your lenses or else you might end up with more scratches or chipped-off coating.
Apart from these steps, keep in mind to keep your eyeglasses & sunglasses in a safe case when not in use. Do not leave them out in the open or keep them with lens facing down as it may lead to scratches.
Remember, your lens coating is not permanent, so, switch to new glasses as soon as you find any coating chip-offs or blurred vision. Lastly, get your eyes checked regularly in order to enjoy a clear and crisp vision all throughout.
