Protecting your glasses: Proactive tips to prevent early damage
To protect your glasses and prevent early damage, here are some proactive tips you can follow:
Take preventive measures to avoid eyeglass damage
Always store your glasses in a protective case to shield them from accidental knocks or scratches when you’re not wearing them.
Plus – avoid placing your glasses face-down on surfaces that can scratch the lenses. Be mindful when handling your glasses, especially during activities that could expose them to potential damage, like sports or DIY projects.
Choose frames and lenses wisely
When selecting your frames, consider durability as a critical factor.
Known for its strength and resilience, acetate is an ideal choice for eyewear frames if you need something more durable than plastic.
Acetate frames can withstand everyday wear and tear, providing long-lasting durability without compromising style. Plus, they have the advantage of being lightweight, which means you can wear them comfortably for long periods.
Acetate frames also look pretty good, coming in various designs. Here are a couple from our collection as an example;
The Utopia pair features a distinctive curved top frame crafted from robust, durable acetate material. Showcase your unique style with these glasses.
Regarding frame materials, titanium is another top contender for strong and lightweight eyewear. Thanks to its impressive strength-to-weight ratio, titanium frames offer exceptional durability without weighing you down.
Plus, it is highly resistant to corrosion, so you don’t have to worry about your frames getting damaged easily. Another great feature is that the titanium is hypoallergenic, perfect for sensitive skin. Our titanium frames are not just durable, but also lightweight;
Experience the perfect balance of durability and flexibility with the March frames. These glasses are crafted from b-titanium, a remarkable material that combines strength and lightweight comfort.
When choosing lenses for your eyewear, remember to consider the added features that can enhance their durability and performance. One important feature to look out for is scratch-resistant coatings. These coatings act as a shield, protecting your lenses from everyday wear and tear and unexpected accidental bumps.
For durability and impact resistance, consider polycarbonate lenses. Their high impact resistance can withstand accidental drops, making them perfect for active individuals or those in hazardous environments.
When choosing lenses for your eyewear, consider the high index or Trivex lenses. High-index lenses are thin and lightweight, perfect for solid prescriptions, while Trivex lenses offer exceptional impact resistance and durability.
Do proper glasses maintenance and cleaning
Use a microfiber cloth to wipe away smudges and dirt gently. Avoid using abrasive materials, such as paper towels or your shirt, as they can scratch the lenses.
When cleaning, use a mild soap or lens cleaner recommended by your optician. Remember to rinse them thoroughly and dry them with a soft cloth.
