Glasses care guide

Recommended Eyeglass Follow-Up Care

Your glasses will need to be adjusted from time to time. You can try and do it yourself, but this is not recommended as many spectacle frames require heating before they can be adjusted. It is also extremely easy to chip or damage your lenses. At Torga Optical we recommend you visit a branch within the first 30 days from collection of your spectacles and then every few months afterwards. More frequent visits may be necessary depending upon your lifestyle. Remember - you're always welcome at Torga Optical so come in any time for our advice or to have your fashion eyewear adjusted.

 

How to Take Care of Your Glasses

Remembering a few simple things about taking care of your glasses can extend their life.

At Torga Optical we recommend you clean your lenses at least daily using warm water, a little hand soap, or special lens cleaners. It is best to dry them with a soft cotton towel or special eyeglass cleaning cloth. Don't blow on your lenses and then try to clean them with your clothing as dirt and fine dust on your lenses will be rubbed into the lenses and over time your lenses will become noticeably scratched. Do not use paper products to wipe your lenses including silicone tissues.

When you are not wearing your glasses, keep them in their protective case. Never rest them face down on their lenses.

Always put on or take off your glasses with both hands, grabbing the sides (temples) midway on each side and sliding them backwards over your ears. This will help them keep their adjustment longer.
