How to Keep Your Eyeglasses in Good Condition

If you wear eyeglasses, you understand just how important it is to keep them in good shape. Constantly replacing misplaced or damaged glasses is a waste of money, and it can also have a negative effect on your eyesight. Discover how to care for your eyeglasses in three simple steps.

Purchase Multiple Cases

We are constantly on the go, and so are our glasses. If you have trouble remembering to take your case with you, purchase extra cases to keep in the places you frequent. Not only do cases protect glasses from damage, but they can also reduce the need to clean the lenses.

Use a Microfiber Cloth

As tempting as it is to wipe your glasses on the tail end of your shirt, it’s much more beneficial to use a microfiber cloth. Other clothes, or pieces of clothing, can contain fibers that scratch the lenses over time. What’s more? Dirt or residue can cause serious damage to the lens of your eyeglasses.

Have Them Adjusted by a Professional

Your glasses can loosen over time, causing them to become uncomfortable and less effective. Visit your local optical technician once or twice a year to have your glasses adjusted by a professional. Consider scheduling an eye exam while you’re at it, in order to maintain good and healthy vision!
