Scratches on eye lenses do not just affect the aesthetics, so what else do we have to pay attention to besides the aesthetics?

One Question

First of all, let me ask you a question: What should you do if your eyeglass lenses are dirty? Many people's answer should be to wipe them with their clothes or napkins. In the long run, we will find ourselves with noticeable scratches on our lenses, and most people who find scratches on their glasses lens choose to ignore them and continue to wear them. This is actually the wrong approach! The surface of the lenses is not only aesthetically pleasing but also directly related to the health of your vision.

In addition to the wrong way to wipe, what else can make the lenses have scratches

the wrong way to clean

Many people wear glasses with a dirty direct paper towel or mirror cloth up on the wipe, wipe not clean not to say, long-term down will let the lens scratch, scratch marks, and with the increase in scratch marks, the lens will be easier and easier to spend, optical performance weakened.

The quality of the lenses

Whether the lenses are easy to spend and the quality of the lenses also have a great relationship, that is, the film layer of the lenses. Nowadays, the lenses are coated, and the better the quality of the coating layer, the less easy the lenses are to spend.

Placing glasses at random

Take off your glasses at will and put them on the table. Here it would be best if you avoided the lenses touching the table, causing them to scrape in contact with the table.

How do scratches on lenses affect the eyes?

More scratches will reduce the transmittance of the lenses, and the vision will be blurred and dark, not as clear and bright as the new lenses, which will quickly cause visual fatigue.

Scratching of the lenses is particularly likely to cause them to delaminate, which can lead to inaccurate prescriptions; and delaminated lenses can affect the protective functions of the lenses, such as anti-blue light, weakened UV protection, and failure to block harmful light from entering the eyes.

Scratched lenses that are not clear to see can induce eye adjustments and also cause dry eyes and astringent eyes.

Lens maintenance methods and recommendations

Rinse with clean water

Open the faucet, and rinse the lenses with running water; if the lenses are dirty, you can clean the lenses with the help of mirror water or apply diluted detergent, wash them and take out the glasses with a mirror cloth to absorb the water, note that it is absorbing dry!

Use the case more often

When you are not wearing glasses, please wrap them in glasses cloth and put them in the glasses case. When storing, please avoid contact with corrosive items such as insect repellents, toiletries, cosmetics, hairspray, medicines, etc.; otherwise, it will cause deterioration, deterioration, and discoloration of lenses and frames.

Proper placement of eyeglasses

When you place your glasses temporarily, it is best to place them with the convex side facing up. If you place them with the convex side down, you will likely scratch and wear out the lenses. Refrain from placing them in direct sunlight or hot places such as the front window of the driver's cab. The heat will easily cause the glasses' overall distortion and deformation or the film layer's cracking on the surface.

According to the newly released "2022 Eyewear Industry White Paper", the service life of consumers' eyewear is relatively concentrated in 6 months-1.5 years, so we recommend you replace your eyewear in time to ensure the user experience so as not to affect your eye health.
