7 Eyeglasses Hacks Everyone Needs to Know

Posted by

Every four-eyed human knows how much a world of difference a pair of eyeglasses can bring. What many of them do not know is that a little care and attention goes a long way. What we have here is a list of hacks you can easily do with your eye glasses to improve its job and make it last longer.

1.Legally blind without your prescription eye wear? Having trouble locating your eyeglasses at night? An easy trick to find eyeglasses in the dark is to put some glow in the dark sticker or paint in the glass case.

2.Nearsighted? In broad daylight, your phone’s camera may come in handy. Use the zoom in feature as you search through your stuff in the room.

3.People who wear glasses know how annoying foggy lenses are. But do you know you can easily avoid this from ever happening again? All it takes is one step. Simply rub soap on the lenses and wipe clean with a microfiber cloth. The soap will create a protective film that will keep your lenses clear of fog. You can also use shaving cream as an alternative.

4.Another annoying thing about wearing eyeglasses is having to push it back in place all the time. If your eyeglasses keep on slipping, use a couple of rubber bands and loop one tightly in each temple to create a “stopper” mechanism. Ta-da! No more slipping! Now, if you are into make-up, you may want to use your eye shadow primer. Before wearing your glasses, apply it on your nose bridge to reduce the effect of that oily patch that causes your glasses to slip.


5.Keep your glasses squeaky clean. A DIY lens cleaner is very easy to do. You will need an empty spray bottle and a funnel. To make the solution, add two parts rubbing alcohol and one part water. Put in three drops of dish washing soap and you’re good to go.

6.Always make sure to have microfiber clothing with you at all times. It comes in handy for every time you are bothered with a smudge on your lenses. It is cheap and readily available in optical shops. When soiled, wash it with hand soap or mild detergent. Warning: Cleaning your glasses with your clothes is a bad habit. It can easily scratch the lenses especially when dust is accumulated in it. Vinegar, bleach, ammonia, and window cleaners should not be used as well. It can damage special lens coating.


7.A simple scratch does not mean you have to throw away your eyeglasses. Apply nonabrasive toothpaste, wipe it in circular motion, and clean that scratch off. Not sure how it works but it does!
