Millions in Britain wear some type of prescription spectacles on a daily basis. Prices could cost anything from a few ponds to a few hundred ponds, which illustrates just how important preventing damage is. There are three main reasons which will damage your prescription spectacles, these are scratches, dirt and misuse. This article will explain how to prevent damage as a result of accidental misuse.
Tips For Preventing Damaging Prescription Spectacles Due To Misuse:
1. Learn how to hold the frame - One of the main reasons for damage from misuse is the way in which some spectacles wearers tend to hold the frame. Holding the frame should always be done using both hands to hold both sides of the frame. Otherwise, one side of the frame bears all the weight and the frame might bend under the pressure of the entire structure. This might happen over time or immediately due to swift move.
2. When cleaning, place on a soft surface - Spectacles should be cleaned on a daily basis to prevent the build up of dirt particles on the prescription lens. When the frame is off, place it on a soft and sturdy surface such as a cloth. Make sure to place the frame against the surface, not the lens.
3. Use protective case when possible - Cases are given with spectacles for a good reason. When the pair are not warn, always place them in their protective case. Damage from accidentally sitting on the spectacles, dropping the spectacles and from other items rubbing against the lens is all too common.
4. Attach a cord to the frame - Cords might seem old fashion, but again similar to cases they work. The frame might slide off your face due to your particular face shape, the frame shape and due to your activity at the time. Cords will prevent your spectacles from falling off, sometimes from great heights which will almost guarantee to scuff even the strongest frame.
