How to repair a broken frame 

If the frame of your glasses breaks, it does not necessarily mean that you have to get completely new glasses. Some manufacturers offer replacement frames for sale.

Proper storage of sports glasses and sunglasses: Tips for a longer lifespan

Storage in case: To avoid scratches and damage, it is important to store sports glasses in a case. Also, avoid storing it loosely in a backpack or placing it on hard surfaces.

Beware of warm temperatures: Particularly hot temperatures can cause serious damage to your glasses, especially on the car dashboard. Therefore, be sure to keep your sports glasses in a case in a safe place.

Stay away from handkerchiefs & co: Although paper handkerchiefs and clothing would be practical and useful for cleaning, they should never be used for this matter. Sweater sleeves cause micro-scratches on the surface of the lenses and vision is impaired. Microfiber scratches can no longer be removed from both plastic and mineral lenses.
