Keeping your glasses crystal clear can be a bit of a challenge, especially when life throws smudges and oil your way. Whether it’s environmental factors, playful kids with curious fingers, or your own skin’s tendency to be a bit oily, we’ve got you covered with five expert tips to ensure your vision remains as sharp as a 4K movie.
- Generous Application: The first step to pristine glasses is using the right cleaner. Reach for glass spray, dish soap, or hand soap to cut through that stubborn oil layer. Just be sure whatever you use doesn’t contain lotions, fragrances, or particles that might end up on your lenses. Dr. Tate personally recommends dish soap at the sink for a thorough rinse.
- Frame TLC: Don’t forget that your glasses are a package deal. Clean the entire frame, including hinges and nose pads. Avoid harsh chemicals like alcohol, which can damage your frames over time.
- Gentle Drying: After washing, be gentle when drying your glasses. Opt for a soft material like a lens cloth, microfiber towel, or cotton. Ensure that the cloth is free of oils and has been washed without fragrances. Some detergents and fabric softeners can leave oils on the cloth that might transfer to your lenses.
- No-Glare Perks: Invest in no-glare treatments that include dust-repellant and easy-to-clean layers. These coatings not only enhance your vision by reducing glare but also make it easier to keep your glasses clean.
- Omega-3 Power: For those dealing with oily skin, consider taking a high-quality omega-3 supplement. This can help reduce the amount of skin oil that transfers onto your glasses. Many people with oily skin have seen improvements in their skin’s oil balance through omega-3 supplements. Keep an eye out for our Hydroeyes supplement, which also helps with dry eyes.
