The Do’s & Don’ts of Cleaning Your Glasses

Saturday, April 11th, 2020

THE DO’S

DO: START WITH FRAMES FIRST

  • Start with cleaning your frames first, prior to cleaning the lenses, to avoid smudges on the lenses
  • It is important to clean away facial oil on the temples, bridge, and nose pads to avoid build up
  • Don’t forget to clean the area where the frames meet the lenses as dust, debris, and facial oils tend to build up in this area

DO: USE LENS CLEANER OR DISH SOAP

  • Uses lens cleaner when available
  • Otherwise use lotion-free, non-citrus based dish soap. Only use a tiny amount of dish soap as most soaps are highly concentrated. Use warm water with the dish soap
  • Dish soap can be used to clean the lenses and frames
  • After, dry with a clean microfiber and/or lint-free cloth

DO: GENTLE MASSAGE

  • Gently rub/massage all parts of the frame and both sides of the lenses

DO: DO IT DAILY

  • Cleaning your eyewear daily is a healthy habit (especially during this time of COVID-19)

THE DONT’S

DON’T: USE HARSH CHEMICALS

  • Chemicals like vinegar or ammonia, or those found in window cleaner and toothpaste, often causes damage to the coatings on lenses and frames

DON’T: USE YOUR CLOTHING

  • Small debris, dust, and other particles that collect on shirts, scarves, and tissues/paper towels can lead to unwanted scratches on lenses and lens coatings

DON’T: USE SPIT

  • Avoid using your spit or your breath, even as a quick fix, as it is not effective and not hygienic

Self-hygiene and hand hygiene are more important than ever. It is important that no matter your specific eyewear needs – glasses, contact lenses, or no correction at all – you must avoid touching your eyes, eyelids, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands. If you are taking the proper precautions, there is currently no scientific evidence of an added risk for contracting COVID-19 when comparing glasses wear vs. contact lens wear.
