Tips for gentle care to ensure long eyeglass lens life

ZEISS Lens Cleaning Solutions

Modern eyeglass lens coatings, such as DuraVision® Platinum from ZEISS, provide great benefits thanks to their optimized hardness properties. However, caring for and cleaning the lenses correctly is very important for everyone who wears them. This is because no optical equipment is exposed to the same mechanical strains and environmental influences as eyeglass lenses.

 

Why is caring for eyeglass lenses so important?

  • High quality eyeglass lenses are an investment. A financial investment not only in better vision, but also in a better attitude to life and your own safety.
  • Incorrect eyeglass cleaning can cause microscopic scratches - which are initially invisible - on your  lenses. Gradually, the lens wears down, the potential of even the best lenses is diminished, and vision is ultimately impaired.
  • Scratches cannot be removed from modern plastic or mineral eyeglass lenses. The lenses have to be replaced.

Perfect care & cleaning for all eyeglass lenses

  • Rinse eyeglass lenses at home under running, lukewarm water. With a high performance Clean Coat coating, the water droplets can easily be shaken off or they can be wiped dry with a lens microfiber cloth.
  • For more stubborn soiling, appropriate eyeglass cleaning sprays can make thorough cleaning easier when used in conjunction with a lens microfiber cloth.
  • When out and about, cleaning with a lens microfiber cloth is fine, but the best solution is to use pre-moistened lens cleaning wipes from ZEISS, which are proven not to damage the lens.
  • Approximately every six months, you should take your eyeglasses to your eye doctor for cleaning in an ultrasound bath. This also gently cleans the eyeglass frames.
     

Avoid damaging your eyeglasses!

  • Do not clean eyeglass lenses with clothing, towels or paper.
  • Do not use commercial glass or household cleaners for cleaning eyeglasses.
  • Do not set eyeglasses down on the lenses, but always on the frames, lenses up. Always store eyeglasses in a case wrapped in a microfiber cloth to avoid damage if the case is shaken.
  • Do not expose eyeglasses to high temperatures of more than 170 °F (e.g., in a sauna or on the car dashboard in sunlight).
  • To avoid damage to the eyeglass frames and thus to the centering, do not put glasses on casually with one hand.
