Like any piece of performance equipment, your glasses require regular cleaning and maintenance to ensure they stay in premium condition, here are our top tips:
Your glasses need a bath too
A little bowl of warm, soapy water, a few swirls, wipe dry with your lens cloth, and voila! You’ve washed the dust and grease that have accumulated on your glasses. Do this whenever necessary or about once a week with hand soap as it will be kinder on your frame.
Store them in a case
Storing them inside a case isn’t just a great way to keep dust and dirt away from your eyeglasses, but it also protects your specs from getting scratched, bent or broken.
Get them adjusted regularly
Your glasses will last longer if you have them adjusted every three or four months. This allows us to check for loose screws or other potential problems. If your frame breaks, do not attempt to repair it with crazy glue or tape just bring it to us and we’ll repair it properly.
Always use a lens cloth
Lens surfaces are very sensitive, and materials of rougher textures are liable to scratch them, and scratches add up to blur your vision.

I can clean my glasses with my clothes
Cleaning your prescription lenses with your clothes may be convenient, but over time your lenses will get scratched.
I can use hot and/or cold water to clean my glasses
Do not use hot water or anything abrasive to clean your glasses. Methylated spirits may be used to clean particularly stubborn marks on the lenses but never use household cleaners or acetone as they can damage your frames.
My new glasses are scratch-proof
There is no such thing as a scratch-proof lens. New technologies and special coatings have made lenses tougher, but all lenses need to be cared for properly to avoid scratches.
