There’s a range of different products you can purchase to help keep your glasses clean. These include using professional lens cleaning cloths or wipes as well as lens gels or sprays, which help get rid of any smudges, fingerprints or dirt build-up. Just remember not to push too hard on the lenses. Wash your lens cleaning cloth regularly with a non-abrasive soap to ensure a perfect clean every time.

For an extremely thorough clean you can try washing your glasses by running them under warm water. Put a small amount of mild soap on your fingers and rub the lenses gently in a circular motion. Once you’ve done this run the glasses under warm water again to remove the soap. Don’t use washing up liquid, it is far too harsh.

Try to not touch the lenses with your fingers so that they remain as clean as possible and be sure to keep them in their case when you’re not wearing them.
