Clear vision: Cleaning glasses: How to properly clean sensitive glasses

Most glasses today have plastic lenses because they are cheaper, albeit more sensitive: even the smallest dirt particles are enough to scratch the surfaces - especially if you use a cleaning cloth or piece of clothing to clean them. The textiles absorb the dirt from the glasses and act like a piece of sandpaper on the glasses. Ultimately, this means that the more often the glasses are cleaned with it, the faster they become dull and have to be replaced with new ones. Proper cleaning is crucial to ensure that your glasses last as long as possible. This article explains how to remove dirt and dust particles, streaks and streaks without damaging the lenses.

If you have to clean your glasses on the go, you should always proceed as follows: First remove coarse dirt particles from the lenses, for example under running water - or you can simply blow them away. Grease stains can then be removed with a microfiber cloth or alcohol-free cleaning cloths for glasses. The latter are particularly practical when you are out and about, even if they are disposable products and should therefore not be your first choice. So take the cloth and gently and without too much pressure run it parallel over both sides of the glasses in a circular motion to remove any dirt and grease stains. Stubborn streaks and streaks can be removed even better if you use an additional cleaning spray (e.g. from Zeiss) that you put on the microfibre cloth. The cleaning cloths are not suitable for this.

At home, there are only two ingredients you need to clean glasses: water and a drop of washing-up liquid. However, be careful not to use a moisturizing or skin-friendly product (with balm), as it could smudge the glasses or leave streaks on them. Now proceed as follows: Take a drop of washing-up liquid between your thumb and forefinger and distribute it with circular movements and without too much pressure on both sides of the glasses. Also clean the frame with the foam, as grease and sweat residues collect behind the temples and on the bridge. Then rinse the glasses under running, lukewarm water and then dry them carefully with a clean tea towel. Finally, you can polish the glasses with a microfiber cloth. Alternatively, you can also use an ultrasonic device to clean the glasses.

Last but not least, storing it correctly also has a positive effect on the longevity of your lenses: If possible, always store the frame in a clean and dust-free case when you are not wearing it - in such a way that the padded side of the glasses fits into the supplied microfiber cloth is wrapped. The cloth should always remain in the case, even when you are wearing the glasses, so that it does not come into contact with dirt particles. You can also wash it regularly (at a maximum of 40 degrees) to ensure that it is always clean. If you don't have a case with you but want to put your glasses away, they must always be placed on the temples to protect the lenses from scratches. And one last tip is: Do not leave your glasses in the car during the warm summer months, as excessive temperatures can deform the frame or damage the lenses.
