How To Take Good Care Of Eyeglasses
Nearly 60 % of all Americans wear prescription spectacles but much of them are totally unaware of how to take good care of their prescription lenses. The lenses may become damaged, the structure of the frame could be crooked, and the coatings place on the lenses can begin to remove. Below will help you take care of your spectacles and as a consequence, care for your vision until your health care provider says it's about time for a new pair.
Don't leave your spectacles under the sun or shower with the glasses on because the shape can be changed.
Never place them where anyones feet or rear end typically go.
Never ever wipe them with an abrasive or dirty cloth (even a tee-shirt), and never wipe them without wetting them first.
While wiping the lens, use one hand to hold the bar (not the leg), and the other one to wipe them softly. Or else the frame will be out of shape or the screws might be relaxed before long.
Clean the lenses, even when they're scratch proof, with a lens cleaner and soft cloth.
Check the screws on a regular basis to make sure that they are not loose. You should tighten them or take your eyeglasses to the opticians if there are any loose.
Take your spectacles off whenever you take a nap, even if you'd rather read or watch a movie.
Begin from the left leg whenever you fold up the frame since most of the frames were designed like this.
When theyre on, guard them with your hands if anything comes flying.
Don't position the prescription eyeglasses lens face down on the table. If you have them face down, the centers of the lens will be scraped.
Use both hands when you place on or take off your glasses ? softly hold the legs of the spectacles using both hands to maintain the balance.
Any sweat and oil on the frame or the bridge can be wiped off using dry cloth or tissues. Other dirt could be cleaned off using a bit of soap or going through the ultrasound cleaning in the opticians.
Always place them in your case when your not using.
Avoid steam, smoke, sweat and some of the cosmetics whenever you can. This stuff have strong acids that can ruin the lens coating and frame plating at a certain level.
Always clean them wet, never ever clean them dry. Don't use your breath, that doesn't rinse them.
