Looking after your glasses
Eyewear is a financial investment and improper care will cause damage to your lenses and may result in scratches, haziness and peeling coatings. This could affect your vision and cause eyestrain.
Your spectacles should be cleaned regularly. The classic slow but steady breath onto the lens followed swiftly by a gentle massage with a good quality linen or cotton cloth still works well.
However, we recommend that you use a special micro-fibre cloth and glasses cleansing spray if your glasses are dirtier. We supply a good quality micro-fibre cloth with glasses purchased.
If your glasses get very dirty you can rinse them thoroughly to remove any dust or grit that could scratch the lenses. It is recommended that a specially formulated glasses cleaning solution is use when cleaning your glasses. Never use hot water, anti-bacterial or washing-up liquid as it can damage lens coatings and frames. Anything designed to "remove grime" will break down your lens coating over time.
We have a range of accessories that you can buy to ensure that your glasses stay clean. We also provide a free same day 6 monthly Ultrasonic cleaning service for patients who have bought glasses from us. This service normally costs £5.00 per frame.
After you have received your glasses, you will want to keep them in optimum shape.

Aside from the tips above to keep your lenses and frames in top condition, cleaning the lenses properly is very important.
