You invest a lot of time, in finding the right frame that expresses you, the right colour that suits you and the one that has a perfect fit. Don’t you want the longest possible life for your frames and lenses?
Well! Everyone does

Start cleaning your eyeglasses from the temple towards your nosepieces. This technique will definitely add months to your little helpers. Mind you, it’s important you use the right cloth too – use a microfiber cleaning cloth only. A big ‘No’ for towel, shirt tail or any other fabric!

Always use your both hands while putting them on or removing your eyeglasses. Well, not everybody can be Rajnikanth right?
