Maintaining Your Eyeglasses

 In Uncategorized

Maintaining your eyeglasses is easier said than done. Often times we forget how to properly care for our eyewear, especially if we are wearing them all of the time. The doctors at Utah Valley Eye Center in Provo want to provide you with the ideal eyewear to fit your style and needs. After finding the perfect pair you can keep your eyeglasses in pristine condition when you follow these easy steps.

Take them off with both hands instead of one. Taking glasses off with just one hand can often twist and bend the frame of your glasses. This will cause them to bend and become loose.

Be careful where you place them, including on top of your head. Placing your eyeglasses on your head can stretch out the frames and cause them to be ill-fitting. There is also an increased chance of dropping and damaging you glasses this way.

Purchase a Microfiber cleaning cloth. A microfiber cleaning cloth will allow you to clean your eyeglasses more efficiently. You can purchase these at most stores for just a few dollars. Before use, rinse your glasses with water to rid them of any dirt. Use your microfiber cloth to clean and get rid of any unwanted smudges or spots. Never use your clothing, paper towels, or a dirty microfiber cloth to clean your glasses. This can cause scratches to appear on the lenses.

Buy an eyeglasses repair kit. These come in handy if you need a quick fix to your everyday eye wear. You can purchase these kits at most major drug stores. If your eyewear becomes noticeably loose you can tighten the screws on the frame of your glasses. If you are wary about doing the repairs yourself you can always come to Utah Valley Eye Center in Provo to have our friendly doctors adjust your glasses for you.

Have your eyeglasses adjusted once to twice a year. By visiting Utah Valley Eye Center we can adjust your frames for you. This will ensure the quality of your eyewear and allow you to have the perfect fit all year long. We will inspect your eyewear to make sure they are as good as the day you bought them.

Keep your glasses in their case. While this might be hard to do when you are living a life on the go, it is important to take the time to do so. Your case will protect your glasses from any potential falls, scratches or spills.
