Glasses are a common item in everyday life, not only to improve eyesight, but also as a fashion accessory. However, for improper use and storage, glasses are easily deformed, thereby affecting vision. Here's how to store your glasses properly so they don't lose their shape.
- Avoid exposure to high temperatures
Neither eyeglass lenses nor frames can withstand high temperatures, and if exposed to sunlight or near a heat source, they are prone to deformation and degumming. Therefore, in daily life, you should avoid placing the glasses in direct sunlight, and do not place them near heat sources, such as stoves, ovens, etc.
- Keep your glasses clean
Glasses need to be cleaned frequently, otherwise impurities such as dust and grease will accumulate on the lenses, which will not only affect vision, but also cause eye discomfort. Therefore, you should use a special cleaner or water to clean the glasses every day, and wipe the lenses with a soft tissue or a special wiping cloth.
- Do not twist or stretch the glasses
The frames and temples of glasses are made of fragile materials that can easily deform if twisted or stretched. Therefore, when using glasses, they should be taken off or put on gently and avoid twisting or stretching forcefully.
- avoid carrying glasses in pockets or bags
Many people are used to putting glasses in pockets or bags, which are vulnerable to pressure and impact, which can cause glasses to deform. Therefore, when storing glasses, you should use a special glasses case and put the glasses inside to avoid external pressure and impact.
- Change glasses regularly
Even when glasses are used and stored correctly, their frames and lenses will still wear and age over time. Therefore, it is recommended to replace it every one to two years.
