    Care for the lens:

    Whenever you are not using your glasses, place them in their case so that the lens is kept safe. Get a case which opens and closes instead of the a pouch where you slide in the glasses because cases are more safe. Do not put your glasses face down on any hard surface because the lens can get scratched very easily. When you have to wipe your lenses, do so with an optical cleaning cloth available with optics. However, do not rub on dry lens. Wet them a bit with warm water and then wipe them dry and clean. If your glasses have gone dirty, use sprays and cleaners made especially for cleaning lenses. Let them air dry or do so with the optical cloth. Avoid using any paper towel, tissue or hard cloth.
