In the previous article, we discussed “Which is better, polarized, photochromic, or mirrored sunglasses?”. In this article, let’s talk about “What is the best way to clean polarized sunglasses?”.
With the popularity of polarized sunglasses, many people know that ordinary sunglasses are used to prevent ultraviolet rays and reduce light intensity. In addition to these functions, polarized sunglasses have one of the most important functions to eliminate glare. So, does anyone know how to clean polarized sunglasses?
Wipe the lens correctly
The first thing to know is that when cleaning polarized sunglasses, never scratch the lenses. Under normal circumstances, you can wipe the lenses with a soft microfiber cloth. This is much better than using your T-shirt. When the cloth is dirty, wash it gently with water. Never use a hairdryer to dry it, as this will damage the microfibers. If there may be hard particles on the glasses, they cannot be wiped with a cloth. Because when you wipe off these particles, you may scratch the mirror surface. Therefore, it should be rinsed under running water with a little liquid soap. After rinsing, gently wipe the sunglasses with a soft cloth.
Adjust the glasses regularly
Often go to the optical shop to adjust the glasses. When using glasses, the screws and nose pads will be damaged, so you need to pay attention to replacing them in time. Most optical shops will provide this service for free. At the same time, you can also deep clean and maintain your glasses in an optical shop. Routine wiping and cleaning can remove stains on the surface of the lens. But between the lens and the frame, there are some details like the lens holder, the frame screws, etc. It is difficult to clean these details just by wiping. Therefore, it is recommended to send the glasses for cleaning and maintenance regularly. When cleaning polarized sunglasses, ultrasonic cleaning cannot be used, otherwise, the polarization effect will be destroyed.
Protect your glasses
Do not put your sunglasses in a particularly hot environment, such as the dashboard of a car. If they are made of plastic, the lenses will be bent or their protective layer is degraded. Also, don't put your glasses on top of your head. When you are not using them, put them in a hard protective case. If you don’t like hard boxes, at least have softboxes. Do not put the glasses directly in your pocket. Avoid contact with perfumes, pesticides, and other chemicals during wearing so as not to corrode the lenses and frames. Always use both hands to remove and wear the polarizer and avoid using one hand. Otherwise, if the force is too large, it is easy to cause deformation or even breakage of the frame.
