Cleaning sprays for sports glasses

Recommendation from an optician: Cleaning sprays for glasses You can order a spray either online or just purchase them in your local eye shop. The cleaning sprays are perfect for liquid cleaning when no water is available. Furthermore, spraying is better than wiping for the sports glasses. Wiping can rub the dust particles in the coating.

Extending the life of sports glasses: Storage

Whenever you don’t need your sports glasses you should storage them in a case. That is how you can protect the glasses from dirt and scratches. Otherwise just place the glasses on the temples with the lenses facing upwards.

Be careful in the warm season

Especially in summer we need to pay attention when storing the sunglasses. Temperatures above 80 degrees Celsius can damage your sports glasses. That is the reason why you should never leave your sunglasses on the dashboard in your car – no matter if with or without the case. Furthermore, after spending a day on the beach there might be sand and salt deposits on your lenses. In order to protect the sports glasses, you need to clean them afterwards with running water.

Cleaning No-Go’s: Handkerchiefs and clothes

Handkerchiefs might seem useful when you are cleaning your sports glasses. You should never use them though. Handkerchiefs contain mineral fillers and have the same effect as sandpaper when rubbing off the dirt. Moreover, the handkerchiefs absorb the dust and dirt and press the particles into the surface of the glass. 
Furthermore, you should never use your clothes for cleaning your sports glasses. The sleeves can cause micro-scratches. These scratches allow rays to pass through the lenses and impair your vision. Once you have a microfiber scratch on your lenses, you cannot remove them neither form plastic nor from mineral lenses.
