Lenses are an essential part of your glasses as they are the components that correct your eyesight. By taking care of them regularly, you can enjoy clear and comfortable vision for as long as you use them. Unfortunately, many users of prescription spectacles or sunglasses are unaware of the best ways to maintain them.

To enlighten you about the right steps to preserve and protect the lenses of your glasses, Doctors Eyecare Wetaskiwin has listed a few below. If you follow these frequently, you should be able to increase your eyewear’s effectiveness and life.

1. Clean them correctly
When cleaning your glasses, please use tepid water to rinse debris from the lenses first. You can then spray them with an appropriate lens cleaning solution and gently wipe with a clean, soft cloth. Ammonia-based products such as a window or glass cleaner will ruin lens coatings and should never be used on glasses.

2. Protect them against extreme heat
Avoid letting your glasses come into contact with extreme heat sources such as grills, ovens, and vehicle interiors during the summers whenever possible. Also, keep them in a clean case when not in use to prevent scratches due to contact with keys, coins, etc.

3. Maintain them regularly
Keep in mind that your glasses require ongoing maintenance. When you purchase your eyewear at our office, we are happy to provide complimentary adjustments, nose pads, and screw replacements as and when you need them.

4. Use the eyewear adaption guarantee
If you cannot adapt to your new prescription, please come into our office for an assessment within sixty days. Changes to the lenses within this time period will be provided at no charge.

5. Pay attention to your eyewear warranty
Your frames are warrantied against manufacturer’s defects for a period of one or two years, dependent upon the frame purchased. Lenses have a limited manufacturer’s warranty against coating defects and initial scratch defects. This does not cover accidental damage, scratches, breakage, or theft.
