How To Take The Best Care Of Your New Eyeglasses

Health & Medical Blog

If you have just been prescribed eyeglasses for the very first time, you need to make sure that you are reviewing the various ways in which you will care for them. This way, your glasses will last as long as possible, or at least until your next eye exam which may not be for another year.

Use The Correct Wipes

No matter how hard you try to keep your glasses clean, they are going to become smudged, dirty, or covered in rain drops at one point in time. Keeping your eyeglasses free of scratches is more about properly cleaning those things off than it is about trying to prevent the glasses from becoming dirty in the first place. This is why it is important to make sure that you are using micofiber cloths that are sold for this very purpose. You can find these cloths in department stores and at your eye care center. There are also some moist wet wipes that are meant for cleaning eyeglasses and sunglasses that you can use for when they are really dirty. Using these will help ensure you are cleaning the lenses properly.

Always Use Your Case

Even if you are just going to set your eyeglasses down for a few moments, you want to make sure that you are placing them within their protective case. Otherwise, they could accidentally get knocked over, sat on, or even dropped. There are both soft and hard cases. While both have their benefits, you may find that the hard cases are better because if something drops on the case, or if the case falls over, it is more likely that your eyeglasses will still be in one piece when you retrieve them from the case. This cannot always be said for the eyeglasses that are stored in the soft cases.

Allow The Professionals To Make Adjustments

Many people make the mistake of trying to put in new screws when the originals fall out or even twisting the frames so the glasses sit better on their face. This is an accident waiting to happen. Many eye centers give a warranty on your glasses so if you are having a problem, no matter how small, you should be able to stop by the eye exam center to have the issue dealt with.

When you make use of this advice, your eyeglasses will look and feel great for an even longer period of time.
