CARING FOR YOUR

Spectacles

Caring for your glasses prolongs their lifespan, maintains clarity, prevents damage, and enhances your vision quality.

Cleaning

Rinse:

Hold your spectacles under lukewarm water to remove loose particles.

Soap:

Apply a drop of mild dish soap to each lens.

Rub:

Gently rub the lenses with your fingertips to create a lather and remove dirt and oils.

Rinse:

Rinse the spectacles under water to wash away the soap residue.

Dry:

Use a soft, lint-free cloth to carefully dry the lenses with gentle, circular motions.

Streak-Free Finish:

For a streak-free shine, use a specialized lens cleaner spray if needed.

Fixing

Assessment:

Identify the issue—whether it’s a loose screw, misaligned frame, or damaged component.

Gather Tools:

Get a small screwdriver, needle-nose pliers, or any specialized repair tools.

Tighten Screws:

If a screw is loose, use the screwdriver to tighten it carefully.

Adjust Frames:

For misaligned frames, gently bend them back into shape using your fingers or pliers.

Replace Parts:

If a part is damaged beyond repair, consider replacing it with spare parts from your optician.

Professional Help:

If unsure or for complex repairs, seek assistance from an optician or eyewear specialist.
