Here are a few hints and tips to keep your new glasses looking great for a long time:
When they’re not on your face, keep them in the case!
Glasses are an investment and we want them to last a long time. They go through a lot, with little knocks and bumps making them go out of shape, and we see glasses being eaten by dogs and broken by children (sometimes vice versa) more often than you’d think! We provide cases with all new frames and there are always plenty in stock if you need to replace an old one.
Cleaning your glasses
Clean your glasses with the microfibre cloth provided and a lens cleaning solution or specially designed pre-moistened lens wipes. If you do not have a lens cleaner, rinse them under a tap, use a mild detergent to clean the lenses, rinse again and dry with a microfibre cloth.
Handling your glasses
Take your glasses off with both hands and don’t wear them on top of your head. This stops them becoming out of shape and slipping down your nose. Keep them away from solvents like hair spray, and high heat.

The best way of preventing scratches is by keeping them in a case when you are not using them. Cleaning them with the microfibre cloth we provide with your new glasses is best, even a cotton t-shirt can be abrasive.
Unfortunately, there is no way of removing scratches from lenses, and while there are some websites that claim they have the answer to removing scratches, their solutions (which include toothpaste and glass etching cream) often end up leaving the lenses very smeary or cause the protective lens coatings to break down. A good way of preventing scratches is applying a premium scratch resistant coating, and we offer several including Zeiss DuraVision Platinum which, as well as being scratch resistant, are dirt, oil and water resistant meaning they are very easy to clean.
