Spectacle lens care.
Today's modern prescription spectacle lenses are a miracle of technology. If you want to enjoy your spectacles for as long as possible it's important to take good care of them. It is also important to protect them from damage caused by environmental factors. Improper handling of technically advanced modern spectacle lenses can lead to scratches or damage being caused to the lenses.
Here at Thompsons Opticians we recommend using a spray to lift any dust or dirt away from the lens. This means it isn't scraped across the lens when cleaning. Using a Microfibre lens cloth is also very important. Dust and dirt cling to microfibre cloths. If the spectacle lenses are more heavily soiled, the first step is to wash them in lukewarm (not hot) water. The use of detergents and soap is no longer recommended.
Beware of high and low temperatures.
Spectacle lenses really don't like high temperatures. So in the summer you should avoid leaving your spectacles on the dashboard of the car or on a window sill or above a radiator in the winter. Stand back when you open the oven door and dishwasher. If you visit a sauna it's best not to take your spectacles in.
Lenses can warp if they are exposed to very cold temperatures, so it's not a good idea to leave them in your car overnight in winter.
