Tips to Take Care of Eye Glasses + SnapIt Giveaway

If you have been following my blog, then you know my son recently started wearing glasses. He just turned five and got his glasses right before his fifth birthday. They have helped him so much in school and recreational activities. He wants to color more and has been hitting the ball more in baseball. They aren't quite 100% and I think that's because although I searched pediatric ophthalmologist, the facility I took him to doesn't normally see children. The doctor admitted that she was scared to go stronger, but that's what he might need. And when I took him to his one year physical check up, they had a chart of shapes and he still couldn't see the bottom lines. We will get there. Since he still has issues recognizing letters, this is a process for us to figure out what is the best prescription for him.

I have had glasses since I was in seventh grade. My mom has had glasses since she was a toddler, so glasses just run in our family. When my son got his new glasses, they told us a few helpful tips on how to take care of eyeglasses that I thought I would share with all of you because some of these even I didn't know!

1. Always take your glasses off with two hands. By taking it off with one, you can put unnecessary pressure on one arm making your glasses crooked over time. Bent glasses can negatively affect the way you see out of your glasses. Plus, if your frames are bent out of shape, they're more likely to feel uncomfortable.

2. Always rinse your glasses off with water before wiping or cleaning them. Even tiny particles of dust or dirt can settle on your lens, and if you wipe those around on a dry lens, it can be abrasive.

3. NEVER use paper towels, tissue, or napkins to dry your lenses. All of these materials, regardless of how soft they are on your skin, have a textured surface and can easily scratch your lenses.

4. Don't lay your glasses lens down. This is just asking for scratched lenses. To people who have worn glasses most of their lives, this is a no brainer. And watching people who don't lay glasses down correctly just makes me squirm.

5. Mistakes Happen. Be prepared and repair them with SnapIt.

  1. Very informative content. Hoping your son will be fine in the future. Thanks or sharing this.

  2. Half of our family wears glasses. My one daughter had laser surgery long ago. Her glasses would have been as thick as coke bottle lens! Her eye sight is bad at night. She can’t drive at night without glasses now. My other daughter had a pair of glasses and contact lenses. My other daughter now needs glasses when she reads. She looks at patients all day. Only one daughter doesn’t need glasses 👓 maybe when she gets older. She’s 43 now. Glasses have come a long way! The thickness of the lens, the different colors and styles of the frames. The prices has risen too. I haven’t heard anybody being called 4 eyes in a long time! Glasses are in - to stay!! Pin worthy. Thank you for sharing!
