Sparkling Sight: Expert Tips for Cleaning and Maintaining Your Eyewear

In this blog, we will delve into the world of eyewear care, exploring the dos and don’ts of cleaning and maintaining, as well as explaining why caring and maintaining eyewear is important.

Caring for your eyewear is important for several reasons.

1. Longevity - Proper care can help extend the lifespan of the eyewear to avoid extra spending on buying replacements.

2. Clear vision - Fingerprints on the eyewear lenses will lead to unclear vision and potentially compromise our safety. Regular cleaning ensures that we have clear and unobstructed vision.

3. Comfort - Well-maintained eyewear is more comfortable to wear. Neglecting care can lead to loose or misaligned frames, causing discomfort, pressure points and headaches.

4. Hygiene - Glasses come into contact with your face, skin oils, and sweat throughout the day, creating an environment where bacteria can thrive. By cleaning your glasses, you can reduce the risk of skin irritation or eye infections.
