Caring For Your Glasses
Keep Your Glasses Clear and Comfy
You may have made a significant investment in improving your vision, so we want to make sure you get the longest possible life out of your frames and lenses.
Basic Care For Your New Glasses
The first thing to remember is always carry your prescription glasses and sunglasses in a case, use both hands to take them off (which helps maintain their original shape), and never place them lens down on a surface as this can result in scratched lenses. Keep an eye on the screws that hold the frame together and, if you find one is loose, tighten it gently with a small screwdriver or take your glasses into your local OPSM store.
A recurring problem with glasses may need specialist attention and we recommend purchasing a care kit to keep your glasses in the best working condition. If you are in any doubt at all about taking care of your lenses and glasses, please drop in to any OPSM store and we’ll be more than happy to help.
Tips For Cleaning and Scratches
Clean your glasses regularly with your OPSM lens cloth to remove dust. If there is dirt on your lenses, use a lens cleaner and wipe them dry with your lens cloth or a soft, clean tissue. If you’re not using your glasses straight away, simply leave them to air dry.
Treat your glasses gently while cleaning, as it can be easy to distort their shape or bend the frames or nose pieces. If this happens, avoid trying to fix the problem yourself and take your glasses into an OPSM store instead, as OPSM fitters have the tools to safely fix the problem.
It’s difficult to see through scuffed and scratched lenses. If your glasses become scratched, the best thing to do is visit an OPSM store and ask one of our expert fitters for advice, which costs nothing at all.
