Looking after your lenses

Follow these easy care tips to keep your lenses in top condition for a longer period of time.

Lens care DO’s
  • Clean your lenses and frame regularly with lukewarm water and a drop of mild liquid soap
  • Dry your lenses with a soft, clean microfibre lens cloth, often provided by your optician
  • Keep your glasses away from household detergent and beauty products such as hairspray and perfume which can damage lenses and coatings
  • Use both hands when you put on and take off your glasses
  • Hold your glasses by the bridge, not the temples
  • Keep your glasses in a hard case, often provided by your optician
  • Ask your Eye Care Professional about Pentax’s anti-reflective and scratch-resistant coatings, which guarantee comfort, performance and durability
Lens care DON'Ts
  • Don’t wipe your lenses with tissues, paper towels or paper napkins. These often contain wood fibres that can permanently damage the lens surface
  • Don’t wipe your lenses with a towel that has been washed with fabric softener, as this can leave a misty film on your lenses
  • Don’t spit on your lenses; saliva may contain oil or other damaging substances. Buy a small bottle of lens cleaner and take it with you when you’re away from home
  • Don’t put your glasses on heat sources or hot surfaces, such as ovens or in a hot car
  • Don’t put your glasses down on the curved side of the lenses. This can damage the coating and cause scratches
  • Don’t keep your glasses on your head. This can misalign the frame, affecting the position of the lenses in front of your eyes
