You take the time to worry about your heart and your lungs, so why wouldn't you think about your eye health? If you are like most people, it might be because you don't know that much about how to take care of your eyes. Fortunately, I have been working with other people to teach them about eye health for the past twenty years. My father lost his eyesight because of a few bad decisions, and I don't want to see other people go down that path.

Four Of The Best Ways To Make Your Eyeglasses Last Longer

James Castro

It's no secret that being an eyeglass wearer, you are spending a great deal of money on your prescription lenses on top of the frames that you purchase to go with them. For this reason, you want to ensure that they always last as long as possible before needing to replace them. Here are four of the best tips to help you accomplish this:

  1. Designate a Spot for Them Everywhere: Whether at work, home or in the car, you need a designated spot for your eyeglasses when you aren't wearing them. The best thing to do would be to either use an eyeglass holder, find a safe drawer so you can store them there in their case or by using a compartment in the car so that they do not get lost under the seats, stepped on or sat on. This also helps you avoid lost time spent trying to look for your glasses before heading out the door. 
  2. Keep Them Secure When You Go Out: The next tip is to keep the glasses secure when you go out. This means either using a string to hang them around your neck or hanging them on your shirt or out of your shirt pocket. The best would be to store them in their case and either put them in your bag or backpack if you have one. Don't ever leave them out on a table exposed since you can easily forget them. Instead, they should be kept on your person.
  3. Be Mindful of Activities: If you participate regularly in such things as water sports, biking, or other activities where you must wear eyewear, it's important to buy eyeglasses that are made to endure these activities, as well as special attachments that will help prevent you from losing them, such as string ropes. 
  4. Clean Them: Finally, you want to be sure that you are cleaning your eyeglasses regularly. Even from one day use, a great number of dirty particles accumulate on the eyeglasses. The best method for cleaning is simple, which would be to rinse under water and wipe with a fiber cloth. This is also why it's silly to skip out on cleaning since it really is so simple. 

These are four of the best ways to ensure that you don't have to deal with the annoying task of replacing lost or damaged eyeglasses over time, which can just end up costing you even more money.  To learn more, contact a company like Vision Eyeland Super Optical LLC
