Saltwater is the bane of many metals and useful things. How will your prescription glasses fare?
The ocean destroys or devours a lot of prescription glasses. Many things rust or degrade when regularly exposed to the salty air near the beach or the spray of constant use on an ocean boat. Many fishermen and women know all too well how short-lived even the highest quality piece of electronic or fishing equipment can be when used for saltwater fishing.
Ions in salt water accelerate the decomposition of many materials including most metals and many coatings and varnishes. Prescription glasses may fare no better than a piece of simple iron if not treated well or purchased with the wrong sorts of coatings.
Ocean fishing is arguably the best fishing there is. The fish are bigger, the water deeper, the adventure more exciting. Even if you aren’t fishing, you can probably appreciate the feeling of being on a boat amidst the vast power of the ocean.
The ocean’s vast power definitely extends to its powers of corrosion. There is nothing that will tarnish and destroy delicate and expensive items as quickly and thoroughly as repeated exposure to saltwater spray and air. Avoiding the speedy deterioration of your glasses involves careful care and good maintenance. Getting a good pair of glasses to last out on the water is simple, you just need to be vigilant with getting the salt off, preferably as often as possible.
If your glasses do wear out before their time, we often offer discounts to returning customers… especially when they’ve had a pair of glasses go bad sooner than we’d like. As mentioned earlier, salt water has power like no other when it comes to wearing things down, but we’ve seen a lot of success with our customers if they perform the simple maintenance listed above.
