If you take good care of your reading glasses, you can enjoy them for years to come. In this article we share useful tips and simple methods to properly maintain, clean, store and even repair your reading glasses. This way you can enjoy your reading glasses even longer!

Effective methods to clean your reading glasses

Dirty lenses make it impossible to see clearly. Regular cleaning of your reading glasses is therefore very important to remove grease, dust and dirt. Always use a special glasses cloth or a microfiber cloth to clean the lenses to prevent scratches. It is best to hold the glasses by the bridge of the nose between the glasses during cleaning.

Gently clean the glasses with lukewarm water and a mild soap or detergent. Avoid using harsh cleaners on your reading glasses that contain citric acid, as they can damage the lens coating. Then dry the glasses with a dry microfiber cloth. Don’t forget to clean the temples and frame with lukewarm water and a soft cloth. Curious about more tips for cleaning your reading glasses?

How to store reading glasses safely

Storing your reading glasses safely is important to prevent scratches and damage. Always store your reading glasses in a sturdy case or soft case when not in use. Make sure the case or cover is clean before you put your reading glasses in it. Never place your reading glasses face down on a hard surface, such as a table, as this can cause scratches. If you have to put the reading glasses down for a while, place them with the lenses up or hang them around your neck using a spectacle cord.

How to repair your reading glasses yourself: practical tips

Sometimes your reading glasses need a small repair, such as tightening a loose screw or replacing a nose pad. To repair your reading glasses, it is useful to have a small screwdriver at hand. Regularly check that all screws are tight and tighten them carefully if necessary. If your nasal pads are worn out, you can often easily find replacement pads at an optician or online. For larger repairs, it is always wise to call in professional help.

How to protect reading glasses

To protect your reading glasses from possible damage, it is important to take a number of precautions. For example, always wear your reading glasses on your face and do not slide them on your head, as this can lead to deformations of the frame. Do not place your reading glasses with the lenses down on a hard surface. Keep the reading glasses away from extreme heat and avoid exposure to chemicals such as hairspray and detergents. In addition, it is wise not to store your reading glasses loose in your pocket or bag, because they can bend or break.

Safe use of your reading glasses

To ensure safe reading glasses use, it is important to follow some guidelines. Always slide your reading glasses on and off carefully, without exerting too much force. Use both hands to hold the arms of your reading glasses and avoid touching the lenses to avoid fingerprints. Make sure you have your reading glasses checked regularly by an optician to ensure that the power is still suitable for your eyes and the glasses are correctly adjusted for the shape of your head.

Stylish accessories for your reading glasses

In addition to the above tips, stylish reading glasses accessories can also help you use your reading glasses safely. Glasses cords, for example, are useful accessories with which you always have your reading glasses at hand. They are available in different colors and styles, so you can choose a cord that suits your personal taste. In addition, there are also nice glasses cases and covers available to safely store your reading glasses.
