There is a proven and trusted way to clean your specs.
To remove any dust or other debris, run your glasses under lukewarm (but not too hot) water.
Remember to rinse glasses after cleaning them. Even gentle microfibre cloths can cause permanent scratches and damage from the buildup of dirt and dust.
Take a small bottle of basic washing up liquid and use your clean hands to squeeze a few drops between your fingers. You can hold the edges of your lenses, not the bridge or arms. Use the soap to gently scrub the soap onto the lenses and nose pads.
Dish soaps should be simple. Moisturising formulations can leave behind residue that can cause greasy smearing. Citrus-based formulas can also break down lenses' coatings over time.
Rinse & Dry
Use lukewarm water to rinse once more, then shake off any excess liquids and dry the area with a microfibre cloth.
Use gentle movements - any force can cause your glasses to sag.
Repeat, if necessary
You can repeat the process if you have oily smudges or stubborn stains that persist after the initial clean.

It's much easier and quicker to repair or correct damaged lenses or frames than it is to fix them. Instead of doing this, you can follow our 5 golden rule right away to prevent any future mishaps.
We recommend that you always use the case that came with your specs. The case is not only a convenient way to transport your glasses but also protects them from bumps and scratches while you are out and about. While hard cases are the best, cloth cases can provide protection from scratches.
It is best to avoid putting your glasses down on the lenses. Even smooth surfaces can cause scratches and marks. To avoid any accidental damage, you can place your glasses upside-down, without the case.
Even the best-maintained specs can be scratched and marred by everyday wear. We recommend that you use our scratch resistant coating to protect your lenses from scratches and marks.
Avoid over-cleaning. It is tempting to clean your glasses with a lot of elbow grease and a thorough clean, but gentle cleaning will be better for your eyes in the long-term. If you clean your glasses too often and too hard, the sides can become loose. This can be prevented by holding your glasses' edges when cleaning.
For those times when you are on the go, consider purchasing spray glasses cleaners or moistened disposable wipes. These options are available at most pharmacies and chemists. They can also be used as an alternative to hot water.
