At Coachella Valley Optometry, we understand the importance of maintaining your eyeglasses and contact lenses for optimal vision health. Here are some tips to guarantee the longevity and effectiveness of your eyeglasses and contact lenses:

For Eyeglasses:

  • Store Glasses Safely: Keep your glasses in a sturdy case when not in use to prevent damage.
  • Use Recommended Lens Cleaner: Clean your glasses regularly using the lens cleaner provided by us or a mild soap and water solution. Avoid harsh chemicals that may damage the lenses.
  • Avoid Placing Glasses Lens Down: Always place your glasses with the lenses facing upward to avoid damage.
  • Clean with Microfiber Cloth: Use a microfiber cloth to gently wipe away smudges and debris from your glasses. Avoid using rough materials that may scratch the lenses.
  • Protect from Extreme Heat: Keep your glasses away from extreme heat, as exposure can cause warping or damage to both the frames and lenses.

  • Wash Hands Thoroughly: Always wash your hands with soap and water before handling your contact lenses.
