Do you own glasses? Do you treat them like royalty? It’s okay if you said no, because you are certainly not alone. With that said, there are plenty of ways people are damaging their eyeglasses, and we are here to point out those ways so you can avoid them at all costs.
Reminder, glasses are very, very expensive, especially if you don’t have the best insurance plan on the planet. Even if you can find frames for cheap on the internet, the lenses could end up costing you a fortune, especially if you get transition lenses or anti-glare lenses.
If you wear glasses, then you obviously need them to see properly. Needless to say, eyeglasses are a very important part of your life. What would you do without them? Not everyone is fit for contacts, which means eyeglasses might be your only reasonable and comfortable option.
People are damaging their eyeglasses on a daily basis. Take these common ways for instance.
Common Ways People Are Damaging Their Glasses
- Sitting on them
- The way they are cleaning the lenses
- Stretching them out by putting them on their head (this is especially common with reading glasses and sunglasses)
- Using them while playing sports — which is a disaster waiting to happen
- Keeping them out in the open (watch out for dogs, kids and destruction of any kind!)
After all of that, one might be wondering how they can properly take care of their glasses. For starters, you can put your glasses in a case — you know, the one that they came with — when they are not on your face. Also, you can use a proper cleaning tool (such as CarbonKlean’s Peeps) so you don’t scratch the lenses. Believe it or not, a shirt was not made for cleaning your glasses … neither was a paper towel, napkin and we think you get the point.
Eyeglasses are very expensive yet invaluable at the same time. Without them, your vision would surely take a hit. Unfortunately, people don’t take very good care of their glasses. To ensure your glasses are safe at all times of the day, keep them in a case when you are not using them, do not play sports with them on and use a proper cleaning tool to clean the lenses. After all, cleaning your lenses with a shirt can actually lead to scratches.
Protect your investments, people, especially the ones you use every single day.
