There are many ways to clean your glasses, but did you know that the most common method, wiping your glasses with your shirt, can damage the lenses? There is most likely a lot of dust on your shirt that has the potential to scratch the lenses of your glasses, and over time can make the lenses dull and foggy. There are many cleaning solutions that may be recommended by your optometrist. However, the best way to clean your glasses is more readily available then you may think.

Using water and a small drop of dishwashing soap is the most effective way of cleaning your glasses without harming the lenses. Run your glasses under some water, and use your fingertips to create a lather with the soap. Then dry them off with a soft cotton cloth.

Plastic lenses are much more common than glass lenses in recent years. Plastic is much easier to scratch, so those with plastic lenses should take extra are to make sure their lenses do not get scratched. Lenses typically have a protective film over them which should never come into contact with any window cleaner, vinegar, or cleaning solutions containing bleach or ammonia. If you’d like to avoid this problem, you can request your glasses come with the UV protection and anti-glare embedded within the lens, which will generally cost around $100 more than regular-coated lenses.

To make sure they are always at their full potential, we recommend washing your glasses every morning. The natural oils from you face, hands and eyelashes that comes in contact with your lenses can build up, not to mention many other environmental factors that can decrease the quality of your lenses.

    I have had dry eyes for a quite sometime and had seen several physicians and got eye drops etc but not until I have seen  Dr. Benjamin I found how serious problem that it was. I had the most thorough and individual attention by Dr. Benjamin. He explained to me my problem and treatment options available. Dr. Benjamin and His staff  are very caring and they spend as much time with you as needed and one feels taken care of. I was given state of the art treatment for my dry eyes and my eyes went from feeling tired , red , scratchy and itchy to brilliantly glowing clear. Office is very serene and staff is attentive, pleasant and smiling. Dr. Benjamin is very down to earth and explains thoroughly that one understands what alis them. I will definitely  keep coming back for all my eye issues.

    I wish I had come to Dr. Benjamin years ago!!!

    I have been hopping around between 3 eye doctors in the last few years complaining of severe eye pain, redness - so bad I haven't been able to wear contacts for a year. Every other doctor made a diagnosis in 2 minutes, prescribed a few things and sent me on my way. Nothing helped and the doctors kept saying my eyes looked fine despite my symptoms. Finally I saw Dr. Benjamin, and he listened to my concerns from top to bottom and did tests the other doctors never did! He made a brand new diagnosis which finally makes sense and fits my symptoms. He spent almost an hour with me which is unbelievable. I am so impressed with this place, even the front desk and other staff were so friendly. I'm so relieved and am looking forward to making a recovery with Dr. Benjamin and eventually getting LASIK.
