How to Clean Transition Glasses

blog-banner-how-to-clean-transition-glasses

Transition lenses, also known as photochromic lenses, are a fantastic option for those who need eyeglasses and prefer the convenience of lenses that automatically adjust to changing light conditions. Cleaning these lenses properly is crucial to maintaining their performance and longevity. Here’s a guide on how to clean your transition glasses effectively.

General Cleaning Method

Transition lenses clean the same as any other lens. Here are the steps for general cleaning:

1. Rinse the Glasses

Begin by rinsing your glasses with lukewarm water to remove any surface dust and debris. This helps prevent scratches during the cleaning process.

2. Apply Cleaner

Use a lens cleaner designed for eyeglasses. Spray the cleaner on both sides of the lenses.

3. Wipe Clean

Gently wipe the lenses with a clean, microfiber cloth. Avoid using paper towels, tissues, or your clothing as these materials can scratch the lenses.

Special Considerations for Anti-Reflective Coating

If your transition lenses have an anti-reflective (AR) coating, you need to take extra care:

1. Use Appropriate Cleaner: Ensure that you use a cleaner specifically designed for lenses with AR coating. Using the wrong cleaner can damage the coating.

2. Handle with Care: AR coatings on transition lenses, or any other lenses, are easily scratched. Take extra caution when cleaning. Avoid rubbing the lenses too hard and always use a microfiber cloth designed for eyeglasses.

Alternative Cleaning Method

For those who prefer a more cost-effective method or don’t have access to lens cleaner, try this approach:

1. Rinse First

Wet the glasses under running lukewarm water.

2. Dish Soap

Add a small drop of dish soap to each lens, both front and back.

3. Clean Gently

Using your clean fingers or a clean, soft cloth, gently clean the lenses.

4. Rinse Again

Rinse the lenses thoroughly under running water to remove all soap residue.

5. Dry

Dry the lenses with a clean, microfiber cloth or allow them to air dry. Avoid using paper products or rough fabrics that could scratch the lenses.

This method is not only effective but also budget-friendly. It ensures your lenses remain clear and free from smudges without the need for expensive cleaners.

Do not use household cleaners, acetone, or products containing ammonia on your lenses as these can damage both the lenses and the coatings.
