You know that feeling when you receive a new pair of glasses or sunglasses!?
Your vision is Christal clear, and the frame sits snug.
How can you keep up this perfect fit?
We will share the secrets here.
1. Don’t push your glasses up on your nose bridge
Many people make the mistake of pushing their glasses up on the nose bridge
with one hand. This action can cause the frame to become misaligned, which can
lead to discomfort and poor vision. Instead, use both hands to adjust your
glasses to avoid placing undue stress on one side of the frame.
2. Microfiber cloth for cleaning
When it comes to cleaning your glasses, always use a microfiber cloth. Microfiber
cloths are designed to be gentle on your lenses, while effectively removing
smudges and dirt. Avoid using paper towels or tissues as they can scratch the
surface of your lenses.
3. Use prepared solutions to clean your specs
There are several solutions on the market designed to clean your glasses, and it
is essential to use the correct one to avoid damaging your lenses or frames. We
recommend using a prepared solution specifically designed for eyeglasses, such
as the products available at our optometric practice.
4. Have a repair kit
Even with proper care, glasses can occasionally require repairs. Having a repair
kit on hand can be helpful in the event of a minor issue such as a loose screw. At
our practice, we offer a comprehensive repair kit that includes all the necessary
tools to keep your glasses in top condition.
5. Have glasses adjusted 2x per year
It is essential to have your glasses adjusted at least twice a year by a qualified
technician. Properly fitting glasses can help prevent discomfort and ensure
optimal vision. At our optometric practice, we offer professional frame
adjustments to ensure that your glasses fit perfectly.
6. Keep your glasses in a case when not wearing/using them
When you are not wearing your glasses, always store them in a dedicated
spectacle case. A protective case can help prevent scratches, damage, or loss of
your glasses. At our practice, we offer a variety of protective cases that are
stylish and functional.
7. Use strings instead of keeping spectacles in your pocket
Avoid pushing your glasses in your pocket, as it can lead to damage or loss.
Instead, use a string to keep them around your neck when you're not wearing
them. Strings are available in a wide range of materials, colors and designs. If
you prefer them tight for sports, or fashionable with a bit of cling on them, all is
8. Don’t wear any spectacles or sunglasses on top of your head
Especially when it comes to sunglasses, it seems an easy and convenient way to
move the on your head to keep them close, but it can lead to damage or
misalignment of the frame. Instead, keep them in a case or use a string to keep
them around your neck.
Proper care of your glasses and sunglasses can help keep your vision sharp and your
glasses in excellent condition. By following these simple tips and using the products and
services offered by our optometric practice, you can ensure that your glasses will last
until you need to replace your lenses for an updated prescription.
