Instructions for cleaning and disinfection
CLEANING INSTRUCTIONS FOR YOUR GLASSES
For a clear view, we recommend cleaning frames and sunglasses with clear water and some dish detergent.
If you use cleaning agents for your glasses, please do not use any products containing alcohol or spirit. Cleaning aids containing solvents are absolutely unsuitable, as they can attack and damage the plastic surface of your frames and sunglasses.
Frames with decorative parts made of fabric, leather or wood cannot be cleaned in an ultrasonic bath. A soft microfibre lens cleaning cloth cleans gently and prolongs the life of your sun protection lenses. Your optician will be happy to inform you about the care of your glasses and the products available in stores.
HOW CAN YOU ENSURE A HYGIENICALLY SAFE CLEANING OF EYEWEAR IN THE CURRENT SITUATION?
Properly cleaning and disinfecting eyewear is exactly the same as washing hands. Our general recommendation to clean glasses with water and some customary detergent only is also the best protection against viruses and bacteria on the frames. Dishwashing detergent has the same function as soap: it destroys the protective fat membrane of the pathogen.
The usual procedure of the optician – namely to additionally clean each pair of glasses in an ultrasonic bath before and after processing – further increases the disinfection effect if a little soap or detergent has been added to the water beforehand. With this method, the optician is ideally equipped for thorough disinfection.
Under no circumstances should disinfectants of any kind be used. These usually contain alcohol, which can damage the surface of some synthetic materials.
