Eyeglass Care Do’s and Don’ts

by Caroline Cauchi, OD

Here at Vision Solutions, we offer a wide selection of high-quality eyeglasses in La Mesa, CA, to improve your vision and quality of life. All of our stylish specs are made with durable materials. With proper use and maintenance, you can expect them to provide many years of vision correction and protection. Read on for some do’s and don’ts when caring for your eyeglasses.

DO: Wash Your Hands Thoroughly Before Handling Your Glasses

Your hands may contain dirt and carry microorganisms that could be transferred to your lenses. Washing your hands before touching your lenses helps prevent eye infections. Avoid using perfumed soaps as they can cause eye irritations, and use a microfiber cloth or lint-free towel to dry your hands.

DO: Clean Your Glasses Thoroughly

Use lukewarm tap water and a few drops of dishwashing liquid to clean your specs. Use a gentle rubbing motion on both sides of your lenses; this produces mild friction that helps remove debris and dirt. Be sure to clean the corners of your glasses too.

DON’T: Use Household Cleaning Solvents

According to our expert eye doctor in La Mesa, CA, household solvents may contain chemicals or other harsh substances that could cause damage to your frame material and lens coating.

DON’T: Dry Your Lenses With Shirt Ends or Paper Towels

Their coarse material may scratch your lenses or leave unhygienic debris on them. We encourage using a lint-free towel or microfiber cloth instead.

DO: Have Regular Eye Exams

Remember to visit your trusted eye doctor for a routine eye exam in La Mesa, CA. This lets us determine whether your lens power needs to be adjusted. We also provide lifetime frames adjustments and repairs at no additional cost to you.
