Your eyeglasses are essential for clear vision, and proper care can extend their lifespan and clarity. At Laurier Optical, we understand the importance of maintaining your eyewear. Here's a guide on how to clean and care for your eyeglasses:

Use a Microfiber Cloth

Start by using a clean, microfiber cloth to gently wipe away dust and smudges. Microfiber is ideal for cleaning glasses because it's gentle on lenses and doesn't leave scratches.

Avoid Using Harsh Materials

Never use tissues, paper towels, or your clothing to clean your glasses. These materials can scratch the lenses or leave lint behind. Stick to microfiber or eyeglass-specific cleaning cloths.

Use Lens Cleaning Solution

Apply a small amount of eyeglass cleaning solution (available at Laurier Optical) to both sides of your lenses. Avoid using household cleaners, as they may damage lens coatings.

Gently Wipe the Lenses

Using a gentle, circular motion, wipe the lenses from the center outward. Pay extra attention to the edges where fingerprints and smudges tend to accumulate.

Rinse with Warm Water

Rinse your glasses under warm, running water to remove any remaining cleaning solution. Avoid using hot water, as it can damage lens coatings.

Dry with a Clean Cloth

Pat your glasses dry with a clean, lint-free cloth, like a microfiber cloth. Avoid rubbing, as this can cause streaks.

Store Properly

When you're not wearing your glasses, store them in a hard-shell case to protect them from dust, scratches, and accidental damage. Avoid leaving them exposed to extreme heat or direct sunlight.

Regular Maintenance

Visit Laurier Optical for regular maintenance, adjustments, and professional cleaning. Our staff can ensure your glasses remain in optimal condition.

Proper cleaning and care can keep your eyeglasses looking crystal clear and help you enjoy clear vision. Laurier Optical is here to provide you with the guidance and products you need to maintain your eyewear.
