For many of us, eyeglasses are an essential part of daily life, enhancing vision and protecting our eyes. However, common issues like slipping frames, foggy lenses, and scratches can hinder their functionality and durability. Fortunately, there are practical solutions to these problems. This guide will help you keep your eyewear in perfect shape, ensuring comfort and clarity.

  1. Preventing Slipping Frames

Slipping glasses can be a constant annoyance, especially if you're active or on the move. Here are a few tips to keep your frames securely in place:

Adjust the Fit: Watch our YouTube videos about how to adjust your frames, specifically to fit your face shape. Properly aligned frames are less likely to slip. Use Ear Hooks: Attach rubber ear hooks that grip behind your ears and keep your glasses stable. Nose Pads: Opt for glasses with adjustable silicone nose pads that increase grip, reducing slippage on smoother skin.

  1. Combating Lens Fogging

Lens fogging can impair your vision, particularly when moving between different temperatures. Here’s how to see clearly, regardless of the weather:

Anti-Fog Wipes or Sprays: Apply anti-fog products designed for eyeglasses. These create a thin film that prevents condensation. Adjust Your Glasses: Slightly lowering your glasses on your nose can increase air circulation and reduce fogging.

  1. Preventing Scratches on Lenses

Scratches not only impair vision but can also weaken your lenses. Protect your glasses with these tips:

Use a Protective Case: Always store your glasses in a hard case when not in use. This simple habit can prevent most accidental scratches. Clean Properly: Use a microfiber cloth and special lens cleaner. Avoid using paper towels or clothing, which can be abrasive. Choose Scratch-Resistant Coatings: Luckily at 39DG all our lenses have scratch resistant coating. Investing in lenses with a scratch-resistant coating can significantly extend the life and clarity of your glasses.

While eyeglasses are an invaluable asset for better vision, maintaining them requires a bit of care. By addressing issues like slipping, fogging, and scratching effectively, you can enhance both the longevity and performance of your eyewear.
