Taking care of your eyeglasses goes beyond making sure they are properly stored every night in a padded eyeglass case or that you handle them with care and caution. More importantly, you should clean your lenses on a nightly basis. Improper lens care however can damage lenses in the form of scratches, haziness, and peeling off coatings. Using damaged lenses can affect your vision and may cause eyestrain. To avoid this, our Garden City opticians suggest that you use a cleaner developed specifically for the lenses as well as use a clean lens cloth. Do not clean using clothing or paper products as these rough materials can easily scratch lenses. Additionally, do not use glass cleaners, hand soaps, or detergents to clean your glasses. Stick to cleaners that are designated for lens care.
If you find that your glasses have suffered over the years from scratches, visit Vision World of Garden City and our frame specialists will see what they can do about repairing your frames. However, since some damage is irreversible, you may just want to buy a new pair of eyeglasses.
