- Keep the water on the lens, apply a small drop of lotion-free dis hwashing liquid to the lens, then rub the sides of the lens gently with the index finger and the thumb, pay attention to the dead corner of the lens, and gently clean the frame and temple.
- If the concentration of detergent is too high and needs to be diluted, rinse again until it is completely washed away, and then rinse the lens with a small stream of water to remove the droplets. If there is still a small amount of water, you can suck dry it with a clean soft dry 100% cotton cloth, do not wipe.
- Finally, your “new” glasses are back.
- ▪ Spray Eyeglasses Cleaners
- Spray the cleaner on both sides of the lens with a regular spray cleaner and a microfiber cleaning cloth. Wipe carefully with a clean hand in a circle shape, after wiping, use a microfiber cleaning cloth to dry the surface.

When the glasses are not worn, put the ocular surface up, not down, in case of lens surface or surface coating is damaged. If you don't wear glasses for a long time, wrap your glasses with a cloth and put them in the case with the lens facing down to avoid damaging them by pressing or sitting down.
If the screw is loose, please tighten it in time, otherwise the lens may fall to the ground or get hurt. During the exercise, please use the protective accessories of the glasses to avoid the damage of the glasses.(Sports glasses are recommended for strenuous exercise)
