If you’ve just purchased a new pair of prescription sunglasses or eyeglasses from Designer Optics, you may be wondering how to keep them in great shape and avoid scratches.

To some extent, scratches are unavoidable. Eventually, you may get a scratch or two on your lenses. But with the right preventive steps, you can keep your glasses in good shape longer, and minimize the chances of serious scratches. Here’s how!

  1. Invest In High-Quality Lenses With Anti-Scratch Coatings

First, make sure you invest in high-quality, durable, scratch-resistant lenses. Designer Optics uses the latest materials to ensure maximum scratch resistance for every pair of frames.

We also have anti-scratch coatings available for most lenses. These are special films that are permanently bonded to the lens to help prevent minor scratches and reduce their appearance.

  1. Avoid Constantly Removing And Replacing Your Glasses

Particularly if you’re a new glasses wearer, you may take your glasses off and put them back on repeatedly. Avoid doing this. Leave them in place. While you’re wearing your glasses, there is very little risk of scratches – but as soon as you take them off and set them on a table or stick them in a purse or bag, there’s a much higher risk of scratches.

  1. Put Your Glasses In A Case Whenever You’re Not Wearing Them

Along with the above point, you should always put your glasses into a protective, microfiber-lined case whenever you’re not wearing them. This protects the lenses from scratching and also prevents the frames from being bent, damaged, or crushed.

  1. Clean Them With Lens Cleaner And A Microfiber Cloth

When it’s time to clean your glasses, only use a microfiber cloth and professional-grade lens cleaner. Don’t use a t-shirt, towel, paper towel, rag, or anything else to clean them. This could scratch them.

You also should never use dish soap or other detergents. These can strip away the protective coatings on your glasses.

Make sure you wash your microfiber cloths every once in a while, too. Over time, dirt and grit could build up on them, and this could eventually scratch your frames. Toss these cloths in with the rest of your laundry every few weeks to keep this from happening.

  1. Never Set Your Glasses “Lens Down” And Be Consistent About Storage

When you take your glasses off for an extended period of time, make sure the lenses aren’t sitting directly on a surface. Place them “lens up” rather than “lens down.”

Also, be consistent about where you store your glasses. For example, always keep them on the same part of your nightstand when you go to sleep. This ensures you don’t lose them, and stops you from knocking them over onto the floor, which could scratch them or damage them.
