How to Take Care of your Blue Light Glasses
A blue light coating is a protective layer that is added on glasses to block harmful blue waves. These are emitted from different screens like laptops, computers, TV or some LEDs and bulbs. In the modern era of technology, blue light glasses have become a necessity more than a luxury. And therefore, it is essential to maintain your blue light lenses to prolong their shelf life. Here I have shared some quick tips to take care of your precious blue light lenses.
The ideal lens care kit
The perfect eyewear cleaning kit from Specscart includes the following essentials:
A lens cleaning solution
An eyeglasses cleaning solution is made up of special chemicals that wipe off any dust and dirt from lenses without affecting the protective coatings. Just spray a few drops of the solution on both sides of the lenses and gently wipe them with a cloth.
A microfibre cloth
Microfibre cloths, due to the fluffy microfibres, can trap more dust particles from the lenses’ surface. Thus, they make cleaning quick and easy.
A sturdy lens case
A strong lens case made of plastic is more than essential for you, especially if you are as clumsy as me. It not only prevents your pair from cracks or breakage but also keeps them safe from accidental scratches.
A mini screwdriver
A lot of people don’t consider buying a mini screwdriver for their lens kit. But if you do, you realise how useful it is to have something handy to adjust the hinges of your men’s Glasses. Specscart provides a complimentary mini screwdriver in its packaging, so you don’t have to run to the optician’s store to make minor adjustments in your frame.
An anti-scratch and impact resistant coating
You can also choose to get an anti-scratch coating, along with an impact-resistant coating on your lenses. An impact-resistant coating makes your lenses less vulnerable to cracks when you accidentally slip them on the ground.
These coatings can cost you a fortune in the UK market, especially for women’s Glasses, ranging anywhere between 80 to 250 pounds. However, Specscart offers both these coatings, in addition to anti-UV and anti-glare layers for absolutely free.
Free home trial
The brand also helps its customers with a free seven days trial at home. So, you can choose up to four lenses of your choice and get them delivered at your doorstep for a free trial.
Another interesting service offered by the brand includes a free home trial of blue light lenses. They send you a circular piece of the lens with a blue light torch. With this, you can test yourself if the lenses are actually blocking the blue light. Once you feel satisfied, you can order a fresh pair of these lenses, and if not, you can return the lenses back to the website.
Cleaning the blue light glasses
If you don’t have an eyeglasses cleaning solution handy with you, you can clean your lenses with the help of a light stream from hot tap water. Alternatively, you can dip them in lukewarm water for a few seconds and then wipe it off with a microfibre cloth.
Getting rid of scratches
You can find a lot of things in your kitchen that can be used to treat scratches on your lenses. Rub a small amount of toothpaste or baking soda on your lenses in a circular motion and rinse them with cold water.
If the glasses are scratched beyond repair, you can get them reglazed from Specscart. This way, you can save the cost of a fresh frame, especially for varifocal glasses that cost more than regular glasses.
Things to avoid
There are a few things that can damage the coatings on your lenses.
- Do not use the tail of your shirt, your hanky or any other regular clothing material.
- Do not clean them with hot water.
- Use an antibacterial lens cleaning solution from Specscart instead of a sanitiser to disinfect the lenses.
- Do not keep the glasses on the dashboard of your car as it can be too hot for them to bear.
- Make a habit of keeping your glasses only in the lens case and not in any random pocket or bag.
