How to Clean Prescription Eyeglasses

Prescription eyeglasses are commonly made from plastic, and they require special care and cleaning. Rough cloths or strong cleaning products can scratch the lenses or break down the coating. When your glasses become smudged with fingerprints, residue or dust, they’re difficult to see through and look unattractive. Use gentle cleaning products and soft cloths to prevent damage or scratches on the lenses. Clean your prescription eyeglasses regularly to keep them crystal clear
