Although wearing eyeglasses can be fashionable, for many people they are a necessity. Eyeglasses can be frustrating when they fog up, slide down your nose, get scratched, or simply get dirty from daily use. Below are 5 easy glasses hacks that you wish you knew sooner!
One of the unfortunate things about a wearing eyeglasses is that you may experience your glasses lenses fogging up in an abrupt change in climate, especially from cold to warm and humid. This might be a challenging for those with specific job roles. Apply the following:
To polish your glasses lenses, use a little shaving foam. Allow it to dry before clearing off any remaining foam with a microfiber cloth. This will create a clean layer over your glasses lenses which in turn protects you from the changes in weather.
If you’re searching for the best way to clean your eyeglasses especially at home, bar soap is your answer. This can be done by gently rubbing the glasses lenses and the nose pads with a bar of soap, then simply wipe it off with a clean microfiber cloth.
This one is a trick answer actually. In reality, the only way to remove a scratch is to buff the lens, but that could remove existing special coatings and potentially damage them further. Many sites suggest using toothpaste or baking soda, but this is not recommended as they do not truly remove the scratches and can also damage the coatings. Once they are scratched, they will most likely need to be replaced. Find out if your glasses are still under warranty from the place of purchase.
This varies from one product to another. The best way to solve any potential glasses problems is to make proper inquiries before you make any purchase. This is important to know what to expect from the store regarding the warranty. Choose a store with a great return policy that replaces your scratched glasses lenses.
Nothing is more annoying than your glasses frame slipping down when in use. There could be different reasons as to why. For instance, your ears being too low and your nose being too small, or your face is too oily. Try any of these tips:
It is very accessible and tends to work well for all those with lower ears. Hair ties or hair bands create a bit more height which enables glasses to sit at a suitable level on your eyes.
Using oil-free moisturizers which regularly keeps your face fresh will prevent your glasses frame from falling down. If you feel like your face is oily sometimes, simply use blotting paper to absorb excess oil so your glasses frame will stick to its right place.
You can wash your glasses with small quantity of lotion-free diluted dish soap and warm water. Rinse under warm water, then shake the glasses gently to remove water. Dry with a soft, clean cotton cloth. Avoid using cleansers that contain alcohol, vinegar, ammonia, and bleach and do not use a rough sponge or scouring pad as they can destroy the coating on your glasses lenses.
Most people only clean their glasses lenses by brushing off smudges on their shirts. This ends up not properly doing the job of cleaning the glasses lenses. It’s important that you keep your eyeglasses free of bacteria by using a microfiber cloth.
Glasses frames can begin to sit crookedly on the user's nose after being worn for some time, which can be harmful to the wearer’s vision. This can be rectified by fastening the screws in the hinges that hold the temples to the front of the glasses.
The temples can be deformed, thereby making the glasses frame closer to the user’s face on either side. Furthermore, it causes it to be higher than the other. By slightly bending the temples, you can straighten the glasses. The temples can break in this process, so be sure to proceed gradually while adjusting it.
