Get the most out of your sunglasses
High quality sunglasses are an investment, and surely one that should pay off long down the road. But, do you know how to get the most out of your sunglasses? Quality materials and maintenance free coatings is a start. That is why we have added a scratch resistant hard coating to all our lenses so that you get a tougher lens surface and protection against damages. Additionally, all our polarized lenses are added different coatings to ensure dirt, debris, and water from smudging the lenses. Your sunglasses will remain in great condition for years if you remember that:
The lenses must be facing upwards.
Never lay your sunglasses with the lenses facing down, as this will cause scratches. When not in use, it’s best to store your sunglasses in your provided case.
Cleaning really matters.
If you cannot clean the lenses right away, you must be sure to rinse them off and clean both the lenses and the frame thoroughly, as soon as possible. Do not use ammonia, bleach, vinegar, or window cleaner as those chemicals may strip away the coatings on your glasses. We suggest using lukewarm water.
This goes for drying too.
Tempting as it might be, you should not clean your lenses with a tissue or the corner of your shirt. Your shirt is likely filled with dust particles that can scratch the lenses. We recommend using your provided WX microfiber cloth or a soft cotton cloth. Wiping dry lenses may cause scratches, which is why we recommend rinsing the lenses under water, before wiping. If water is not available, you should lightly blow on the lenses to remove any fine particles prior to wiping them.
Salt water is not a friend.
Salt water is particularly damaging, so do not leave spots of saline residue on the lenses for too long, as saltwater is corrosive and will dry into white residue. This could erode the surface coatings and the lenses.
The same goes for heat.
You should not leave your sunglasses on the dashboard of your car, if in direct sunlight, as extreme high temperatures can damage the lenses.
Be aware of these everyday products.
Alcohol based products, DEET, perspiration, sunscreen, hand sanitizer, and hairspray can damage lens coatings and cause them to spot, craze and/or peel if not cleaned shortly after contact. Clean your sunglasses when they have been in contact with these products.
Do you have a Facial Cavity™ Seal, then be aware.
Do not use any type of chemicals on you Facial Cavity™ Seal, as this will eventually cause the foam to disintegrate. We suggest that you instead use a gentle rinse of warm water and a mild dish or hand soap. To prolong the life of your Facial Cavity™ Seal, do not rub the foam dry. Instead, we suggest that you clean it when you have time and let it naturally air dry.
