Getting use to spectacles:

  • Start wearing them in the morning and increase the wearing time daily.

  • Use them daily and constantly if possible. (For certain prescriptions, occasional use might be difficult.)

  • Some people might experience blurry vision, sour eyes and even headaches with new glasses initially.

  • Let us know if you still have problems after using them for 1 week for single focus lenses or 2 weeks for multifocal lenses. 

Caring for spectacles:

Spectacles are like anything in the world. They can be broken in a second due to accident. They can also be weakened over time due to wear and tear, mishandling by the wearers and/or other people around without being noticed; then they break suddenly while the wearers are wearing them due to a little bit of stretching force.  There are no spectacles which break by themselves!

Breaking glasses can be frustrating and expensive. While Glory Eyecare Optometrists has a fabulous scheme* to take the worry out of glasses ownership, talk to us about this scheme if you are interested.  Breaking your glasses is never a fun experience.  Here are some tips to help you prevent your glasses from breaking!

Put on and take off your glasses with both hands; don’t pull them off.

  • Pulling glasses off your face using one side of the frame can bend the frame and wear out the screws and hinges.  Always hold your glasses with both hands when putting on and taking off to preserve their shape.

  • Never put your glasses down on lens side.


Clean dirty lenses and frame.

  • Remove any abrasive particles, dust, dirt, detergent, cosmetics and chemicals by rinsing them under room temperature running tap water and clean with mild lotion-free and moisturiser-free dishwashing liquid (not powder) or using a quality lens spray (not any other solvents). 

  • Always dry your lenses with a soft and clean lens microfibre cloth

  • Hand-wash your microfibre cloth frequently with mild lotion-free and moisturiser-free dishwashing liquid (not powder) and clean water without fabric softener; allow the cloth air dry. 

  • Do not use tissue paper (because they are made of wood fibres which are abrasive) and dish towels to clean the lenses.

Avoid smudge of lenses.

  • Wash your hands to remove dirt, grease, natural oil of fingers before handling your glasses.

  • Do not touches the lenses while putting on or adjusting glasses.  Gripping the frames only and never push directly on the lenses.

  • Remove or protect your glasses while cooking on a stove.  Put a lid over the pot.  Clean the glasses as soon as possible if they have been smudged by grease.  

  • Prevent oils from your face, hair and eyelashes from smudging your lenses.  Wash your face regularly.  Pin your bangs back.  

  • Protect your lenses from inclement weather.  Take off your glasses in a windy, rainy and dusty weather.  

  • Take your glasses off before going to sleep or rest to avoid oil from your face and pillow.

  • Prevent your makeup from smudging your glasses.  Clean off the makeup from the spots of contact on the bridge of your nose, clean your glasses and gently scrub your nose pads.  Avoid eye and face cosmetics which might touch and smudge the lenses.

  • Our quality lens sprays are able to minimise the smudging of lenses for a period of time after each application.

Keep them in a case when they’re not on your face.

  • Always keep your glasses in a hard spectacle case when they are not on your face to avoid damage caused by you, other people, pets or seat belt. Not putting your spectacles in your case can result frame and/or lens scratches without even noticed by you due to the fact that all spectacles are small and neither robust or undamagable. Insufficient care and accidents can cause and damages; and warranties do not cover these. 

  • Ensure the spectacles are not pressed at all by the case before it is closed.

  • If you have a habit of misplacing your glasses case, buy several and keep them in areas where you are likely to put your glasses down (your desk, your nightstand, your bathroom sink).  Glasses cases are much less expensive than the glasses themselves! 

  • Hanging glasses on the front collar of shirt, putting them in the pocket or keeping them on top of your head can stretch the frames, damage hinges, nose pads, cause lens scratches, fitting problems and the frames will break easier.


Check your seat before you sit.

  • Many glasses breakages are a result of being sat on.  Look before you sit on a couch, recliner, or vehicle seat, and you may save yourself from having to buy a new pair of frames.

Beat the heat and avoid the cold.

  • Extreme temperatures can weaken the frame and lenses, and make it more susceptible to damage. 

  • Heat can damage eyeglass lenses in several ways:

    • Crazing of anti-reflective coating, like a web of fine cracks that appear on the lenses;

    • Softening and warping plastic frames;

    • Warping eyeglass lenses; and

    • Damaging the film on polarized sunglasses.

  • Never leave your glasses in your car on hot summer days and cold winter nights, even in the glasses holder, console or compartments.

  • Never expose your glasses to temperatures above 60 degrees Celsius, such as hot water, vapour from cooking or BBQ.

Try to avoid wearing them when they might be hit, pressed or damaged by yourself or somebody.

  • Don't wear them when you are reading on your side in sofa or bed, or before falling into asleep, such as reading in bed. Because your spectacles might become misaligned, weakened or damaged without even noticing.


Loose screws are not allowed! 

  • Keep a small screwdriver on hand and periodically tighten the screws on your frames to give your frames longer life.  Keeping the screws tight also improves the fit of your glasses!

  • Regularly checking the screws, especially the rim screws, to see whether they are coming out.

Look after spring hinges of frames!

  • Do not open the temples and test the spinge hinges unnecessarily because it can weaken or even break the hinges over time.

Come in for professional adjustment and servicing.

  • Never attempt to adjust your glasses yourself or non-professional because the glasses might be weakened or even broken.

  • DO NOT use super glue for repairing the glasses because the warranty will be voided.

  • If your glasses need any adjustment and servicing, please come in for our professional services.

  • Servicing by other companies might weaken the glasses and the warranty will be voided.

Change your frames to fit your game. 

  • If you workout often or play sports and must wear glasses while doing so, consider purchasing a pair of sports eyewear.  These glasses are designed specifically for sports and protect your eyes as well as resist impact. 

  • If you don’t play sports but consistently break your glasses, look into frames made out of memory materials.  These frames are made out of a material and/or design that can be bent and twisted but pop back into shape! 

  • Especially for children, try to avoid wearing glasses for sport, playing or anytime that they might break or lose their glasses.  Contact lenses, orthokeratology and sport eyewear are the best options.  Talk to our optometrist about these options if you are interested.
