Having eyeglasses means you need a seeing impairment aid. There are lots of issues that people face every day by not seeing properly. That’s why they go to the ophthalmologist who gives them a prescription for getting a new pair of glasses. See what the prescription is used for here.
Getting a pair doesn’t mean your worries end there. If you want them to last, you should take care of them. If you do maintain them properly, they can go for years. If you don’t they’ll fall apart in a few months. If you want to know how to properly take care of them, here are a few pointers:
Never touch the glass with bare hands
All glasses owners get goosebumps when they see how someone touch the glass with their fingers. This leaves a stain on the glass and you can only see clearly again after you wipe them with special linen. If you want them to last longer, you need to make sure your finger never touch the bare surface but only the frames.
Regularly use a solution
Every day, at least once, you should add a solution and wipe them with fibre. This is the best way to keep the stains off the glass and prevent build-ups of dirt over time. With the solution, you’re going to spray the surface and wipe it off. That’s it. That’s going to be enough to keep it clean during the day. People usually repeat the process if there’s a need for it after the surface becomes dirty again.
Keep them in a special cover when you’re not using them
When you go to sleep or go to work out, it’s best to place them inside the special cover. This is the best way to make sure that they are not going to fall down and break, or that someone mixes theirs with you and take them.
Don’t push the bridge
Some glasses have more sensitive bridges than others, depending on how they are built, of course. Take a look at these Kate Spade glasses and see how some of their models are made entirely from one piece, and others are connected with a bridge. Those who are connected should never be pushed with the fingers because the bridge will easily become loose.
Don’t put them on your head like sunglasses
A lot of people have the habit of placing their glasses on the head when they need to see something without them. This is totally wrong. The hair is much messier than you might think and the follicles will leave grease all over them. You’ll need to spray the solution and wipe them right after it if you want to keep them clean.
Now you know how to keep them perfectly clean and well protected. Use the suggestions we provided above, and you’ll be happy to see your eyeglasses last for a long time. If you treat them right, be sure that they’ll also serve you well.
