Simple Tips On Caring For Your Eye Glasses
In the United States, 41% of adults currently suffer from myopia, and projections indicate that number will rise to over 50% by 2050. So, it’s likely that you already wear glasses or will soon require them.
It makes sense in this case to remind yourself that your eyeglasses are an important part of your physical and mental health and to take good care of them. It’s important to have your eyes checked regularly. Prior to buying new eyeglasses, you should get your vision examined. You should choose a trustworthy provider to do your eye exam so that they can advise you on the best frames for your needs.
Here are some tips on caring for your eyeglasses
When taking off your glasses, please use both hands
The frames of your spectacles may break easily if you try to put them on with one hand. Use one hand to hold your glasses as you take them off and the other to replace them. Avoiding excessive stress on the frames is avoided by this.
When not wearing them, your glasses shouldn’t go on top of your head or behind your ears; doing so puts extra stress on the hinges and can lead to breaking. Put them back in their case carefully as soon as you’re done wearing them.
You should give it a good soaking and dry it with a lint-free cloth.
Glasses may be cleaned with soap and water and then dried with a lint-free towel. In order to clean the lenses, use a microfiber cloth or a paper towel.
Avoid getting any oil from your hands onto the glasses’ lenses by washing them before cleaning them. When you put them back on later in the day, the lenses may be scratched or smudged from the previous wear.
Maintain Spotless Lenses At All Times
Don’t ever use paper towels to wipe down your glasses and remove dust and other particles. They pose a threat to your eyeglasses because they might scratch them and leave behind annoying threads.
Rather than using paper towels, soft cloths, or lens cleaners are recommended for removing fingerprints and other smudges. Always use a solution developed for cleaning eyewear. Avoid using ammonia-, alcohol-, or water-based cleansers around the house.
Put your eyewear somewhere secure
To avoid damage from dust and heat, your spectacles should be stored in a protective case or bag. Always keep your eyewear in a safe place, away from direct sunlight and heat, and never on a window sill or other surface where they might be broken.
When operating heavy machinery, always use safety glasses
It’s important to keep in mind that the blades of power tools like lawnmowers and chainsaws can throw up debris, including grass clippings, which can harm the lenses of your prescription eyewear.
To keep your prescription lenses safe from accidental damage, you may choose to wear a pair of non-prescription sunglasses over them.
