Taking Care Of Your Computer Glasses
It’s not too difficult to keep your blue light blocking glasses in good condition. Here are some tips:
- Regularly clean the lenses of your glasses with a clean, soft microfiber cloth, like the one that comes with your glasses. Avoid wiping smudges on your glasses with your clothes, facial tissues or paper towels as this can scratch the lenses. You could also use a special lens cleaner like Aqualens Spectacle Lens Cleaner Bottle 100 ml (Combo).
- Keep your glasses in a safe place when you’re not using them. If you need to carry them with you, make sure you have a protective case to store them in. If you leave them by your bedside while asleep, make sure they’re always positioned with the lenses facing up and away from hard surfaces.
- Try not to fall asleep with your glasses on your face. This will cause the frames to bend and may even damage the hinges.
