At Eyeris Eye Care, we know how important it is to keep your vision crystal clear. Clean glasses not only improve your sight but also extend the life of your lenses. Here’s a simple, step-by-step guide to ensure your glasses stay spotless and scratch-free.

Step 1: Wash Your Hands

Before touching your glasses, wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water. Dry them with a clean, lint-free towel to avoid transferring dirt and oils to your lenses.

Step 2: Rinse Your Glasses

Hold your glasses under a gentle stream of lukewarm water. This helps remove dust and debris that could scratch the lenses when you’re cleaning them. Avoid hot water, which can damage lens coatings.

Step 3: Apply a Drop of Dish Soap

Put a small drop of lotion-free dishwashing liquid on each lens. Gently rub both sides of the lenses and the frame with your fingertips, ensuring you reach the nose pads and ear pieces.

Step 4: Rinse Thoroughly

Rinse your glasses again under lukewarm water to remove all soap residue. Residual soap can leave streaks and smudges, so ensure your lenses are completely clean.

Step 5: Dry with a Lint-Free Cloth

Shake your glasses gently to remove excess water, then dry them with a clean, lint-free microfiber cloth. Avoid using paper towels, tissues, or your shirt, as these can scratch the lenses.

Step 6: Inspect and Repeat if Necessary

Inspect your glasses for any remaining smudges or spots. If they’re not perfectly clean, repeat the process.

Bonus Tips:

  • Use a Lens Cleaner: For quick cleanups on the go, use a spray lens cleaner and microfiber cloth. Avoid household glass cleaners which can damage lens coatings.

  • Storage: Always store your glasses in a protective case when you’re not wearing them. This prevents scratches and keeps them clean.

  • Avoid Harsh Chemicals: Never use products with ammonia, bleach, or vinegar on your lenses.
