How to disinfect glasses

How to disinfect glasses

COVID-19 has made us more aware of how important good hygiene is. A good cleaning routine should include regularly disinfecting your glasses, especially after you’ve visited a public space.

Five Tips for Cleaning your Lenses

  • Don’t just reach for your tissue, tie or sleeve to clean your glasses

    1. Don’t just reach for your tissue, tie or sleeve to clean your glasses  – you’re not doing your lenses any favors. Don’t forget: Proper lens care increases the lifetime of your lenses and ensures better vision. Even when you’re on the go, make sure you use cleaning products from trusted experts in the optics industry.

  • 2. Don’t wash microfiber cloths in water warmer than 40°C (104°F), and don’t add fabric softener

    2. Don’t wash microfiber cloths in water warmer than 40°C (104°F), and don’t add fabric softener – otherwise, the cloth will leave streaks the next time you clean your glasses.

  • 3. Scratches can’t be wiped away, no matter if you have plastic or glass lenses

    3. Scratches can’t be wiped away, no matter if you have plastic or glass lenses. In this case, prevention is advisable because scratched lenses should be replaced immediately. Even if the defect only appears cosmetic, light disperses through the tiny scratch, irritating the eye. That’s why it’s important to clean your lenses with lens wipes.

  • Your glasses need a home!

    4. Your glasses need a home! Store them in a hard case whenever you’re not wearing them. If you don’t have a case with you, make sure you put them in a safe spot with the lenses facing upwards.

  • Glasses don’t like extremely high or extremely low temperatures

    5. Glasses don’t like extremely high or extremely low temperatures.The heat generated in a car on a hot summer day, for instance, is also something to be avoided. The same holds true for the sauna or the heating at home. Don’t subject your glasses to extreme temperatures more than is necessary.
