8 Eyewear Hacks For People Who Wear Eyeglasses

Let’s get the facts straight, wearing eyeglasses can be a burden at times. They look cool and everything, but they have their set of disadvantage too—like it sucks when it rains, or when you are watching a 3D film!

But, fret not...

Here are a few DIY hacks you can use in times when your eyeglasses give up on you. Look through them because they will be handy for years to come. You could pass them on too.

Adjusting the nose pads at home

Are the nose pads on your eyeglasses a little crooked? No, problem, you can actually adjust them at home. All you have to do is keep your glasses on a flat surface. This will make the adjustment more precise.

Cleaning the lenses with dishwashing soap

People use cleaners that have alcohol, ammonia or bleach—we wouldn’t suggest you do that because the chemicals in them will destroy the coating on the lenses. Use dish-washing soap instead. Better if it’s organic.

Preventing the temples from falling

Preventing the temples from falling

It’s 2018 and most of you might prefer buying stylish eyeglasses online. But sometimes the temples of the glasses don’t sit/fit well and they start slipping off. In times like these, you can use rubber bands or thin hair ties and tie them at the end of the temple tips. This will solve the problem.  

Cleaning your glasses with shaving cream

The next time your glasses get dirty try cleaning them with a bit of shaving foam. The foam creates a protective film on the glass that keeps it from getting dirty. You can try it on your windscreens too!

The first step to a clean pair of eyeglasses? A clean microfiber cloth. If your cloth is dirty your glasses will always have smudges, or rough dust particles might scratch your lenses.

Clean the wiping cloth with warm water and a mild washing powder, and thoroughly wash them every time you think they are dirty.  

Toothpaste to remove the scratches on your lenses

Like there is banana peels to fix scratches on your smartphone screen, similarly, there is toothpaste to remove scratches on your lenses. Toothpaste will help you get rid of them. Rub the paste on the lens gently, moving the cloth in small circles.

Continue this for about ten seconds. Rinse with cold water and wipe them dry. For a stubborn scratch, you may have to repeat the process. Continue doing it until the scratch is completely gone.

All you have to do is insert the pointed edge of the toothpick in place of the screws and gently break them. Job's done! This hack is so subtle that no one will even know.

Whether it’s perspiration or the oils from your skin (or just a poor fit on your frames), glasses slipping down the face doesn't feel good. In fact, it’s downright annoying and it’s an age-old problem which has haunted every man, woman and child who has ever worn prescription glasses or sunglasses.

If you want to avoid this, rub a little beeswax on the inside of your glasses or your nose pads and re-apply when necessary.
