We are happy to see you at anytime for adjustments or repairs. Many patients find it helpful to come in at least once or twice in a year for maintenance on their eyewear. Here are some great tips on how to take proper care of your eyewear that will help make them last:
Rinse your glasses off with water before wiping or cleaning them. Even tiny particles of dust or dirt can settle on your lens, and if you wipe those around on a dry lens, it can scratch.
Spray carefully with cleansers that are specifically made to clean eyeglass lenses. Never use household cleaners like Windex, because these chemicals contain ammonia, which will actually wear off the coating that is on the lens. Alcohol can damage the lenses or frame.
Air Dry if you can. This is another great way to keep any materials from getting on to your lens. If you can't set them down to air dry, wipe them down gently with a soft, clean, debris-free cloth.
Use the Right Cloth to gently buff the lenses. Never use paper towels, tissue, or napkins to dry your lenses. All of these materials, regardless of how soft they are on your skin, have a textured surface and can scratch your lenses.
Also, refrain from using the tail of your shirt. If the clothing is not 100% cotton, the fibers in the fabric will scratch the lens of your eyeglasses over time. The clothing can also have dirt on it, which means the residue ends up transferred to your lenses.
Warranty depends on the lenses that were made for your needs. Your eyewear may have a one year protection plan. Contact your optician at (616) 949-5860.
We are looking forward to seeing you again soon!
