Caring for your eyewear

Thank you for purchasing your eyewear us and supporting local small businesses! Your investment in quality eyewear will not only help you see better

Inspect your eyewear often

  • Check your glasses frequently for signs of wear. If a hinge or eye wire screw is loose, come in and have us tighten it. You can also purchase a small screwdriver to perform this task at home.
  • Check the alignment of your glasses while standing in front of a mirror. If they seem crooked or uneven, come in and have us straighten them.
  • Look at the lenses for scratches. Most of our lenses have a limited warranty against scratches caused from normal wear and tear.

Clean your glasses often

  • Rinse the lenses and frame under warm water. This removes any grit or dust that could cause scratches.
  • Spray the lenses with a good quality lens cleaner. Nothing with acetone, ammonia or alcohol as this could harm the lens surface. Gently rub both sides of the lenses with your fingers. Don’t forget to clean the entire frame too. This will remove any oils from your skin that could damage the finish on the frame. Dry with a soft cotton cloth.
  • A microfiber cloth can be handy to polish away any streaks.

Protect your glasses

  • Keep your glasses in a case when you’re not wearing them. For folks that have pets, we recommend putting the case in a drawer out of harm’s way.
  • Always use both hands when putting your glasses on and when taking them off. This helps to maintain the alignment and prevent any damage from repeated stretching or bending of the frame.

Cleaning Tip

Launder your microfiber cloth without fabric softener. The antistatic chemicals in fabric softener can leave streaks on your lenses. Never use paper products to dry your lenses. Paper towles can scratch eyeglass lenses.

Other Tips

  • If you use hair spray, apply it before putting your glasses on. Hair spray can damage the lens coatings.
  • If you get anything on the lenses (perspiration, cleaning chemicals, citrus) clean them right away to avoid damaging the lens surface.
  • Don’t use fabric softener on the cloths you use for drying your eyeglasses. Fabric softener can leave a residue that will smear the lenses.
