Top tips to take care of your specs

When you last bought a pair a new pair of glasses you probably spent a good amount of time searching for the perfect frames and selecting the right lenses – after all you are investing in your vision.

But even if you start out with the very best intentions it’s easy to let every day distractions get in the way and care of your specs start to slip.

So, we have come up with some top tips to help you keep your glasses in great condition with ease.

Store your glasses safely

How often do you find yourself hunting for your glasses because you can’t remember where you last put them? You’re not alone! Simple tricks such as choosing a set place to keep them when they’re not in use or investing in a brightly coloured case you can easily spot can help. And if you still struggle then it’s probably time to think about buying a spare pair so you have a fallback option! If you have an up-to-date prescription, just book an appointment with our dispensing optician and we can help you find the perfect extra pair.

Clean up your act!

Vow to be gone with smudges and fingerprints on your lenses and commit to keeping your glasses clean. Check out our blog for a quick guide to cleaning your specs.

Rest your specs down safely 

Try to avoid resting your glasses on the lenses as this can lead to scratches. All of our frames come with a case, so you have somewhere safe to put them when you’re not wearing them.

If they are broken, get them fixed!

Sometimes accidents happen. Maybe the nose pad has fallen off or the sides are getting a little loose. Rather than waiting for your next check-up, just phone your local branch and we will do our best to make them as good as new.

Don’t put your glasses on the top of your head

As tempting as it may be, resist the urge to push your glasses onto the top of your head when you don’t need to wear them. Over time, this will bend the sides out of shape and make them feel loose.
