There's probably a lot of gunk on your glasses. There might be flecks of mascara and other makeup, dust from that construction site you had to pass when it was windy, and oil from your face and hands. It's annoying to constantly have to keep cleaning the lenses of your glasses in order to be able to see properly. Here are some tips for cleaning your prescription glasses so that they stay clean for a longer period of time.
1. When You're at Home, Use Dish Soap
The easiest way to get your glasses clean so that they repel dirt for a short period of time is to use simple kitchen soap and cool water. You want to use cool water because hot water can damage some protective films that glasses sometimes have. You also want to avoid using citric-based or citric-smelling dish soap in order to make sure that you don't erode any protective coatings you might have on your glasses.
To use dish soap, run your glasses under the cool water running from the tap for a second. Then, place a small dab of dish soap on the back of each lens. Use your fingers to rub in the dish soap gently and work up a slight lather. Transfer the soap to the back of your glasses with your fingers. Continue doing this until you have hit the entirety of your lens. Rinse your glasses off in the cool water and then dry your glasses with a microfiber cloth that is guaranteed to not leave any bits on your glasses.
2. When You're Out, Use Spray and a Microfiber Cleaning Cloth
When you're out of your home, use a glasses-cleaning spray and a microfiber cloth to get rid of any smudges completely. Most sprays that you purchase that are specifically for cleaning glasses will get cut through the greasy layer that might be on your glasses and causing dust and dirt to adhere to your lenses, allowing your glasses to stay cleaner for a longer period of time.
3. Get Your Glasses Adjusted
If you are constantly getting a smear in the middle of your lenses on the side that is facing your face, then your lashes are hitting the glass and wiping the dust and dirt that they catch throughout the day on your lenses. Use small, metal nose supports on your glasses to hold them farther away from your lenses. Get these supports fitted at your local glasses shop. Another option is to wear less mascara in order to keep your lashes from getting so long.
