Proper Lens Care Instructions

Proper Lens Care Instructions

At Battle Ground Vision Center, we understand that your eyewear is not just a medical necessity; it’s a fashion accessory too! Protect your investment and keep looking your best by following these proper lens care instructions. Watch the video below to see how to properly clean your lenses and avoid scratches and damage.

Unfortunately, 80% of lens scratches occur by cleaning eyewear incorrectly. Protect your investment by following these proper lens care instructions.

Begin by rinsing your lenses with warm water and a mild soap without additives. You may also use an approved lens cleaning solution provided by your eyecare professional. Never use glass cleaner or other household cleaners. Avoid all chemicals including hairspray, perfume, and cologne, which are harmful to eyeglass lenses.

Next, dry your lenses with a soft, lint-free cloth. You may also use a microfiber cloth specially designed for your eyewear. Never use facial tissue or paper towel as they will scratch your lenses. Finally, never leave your eyeglasses in direct sunlight or in a hot car. The heat can damage your lenses as well as your eyeglass frames. Additionally, never leave your eyeglasses facing downward. Always keep them in a case when not in use.
