    Use both hands to hold the temple arms to take off and wear glasses, which will avoid the deformation and bending of the arms due to uneven force. When using glasses, it is necessary to handle them lightly and avoid the deformation of the frame. When placing glasses on the desktop, the temple arms should be downtown. It's better to put them in a hard case (atteched with each  pair of glasses from vlookoptical) when you don't need them. Do not place glasses in high temperature areas such as heating, stove, etc. Do not bathe with glasses. High temperature will deform the glasses and damage the optical properties of the lenses.

    The glasses can't be placed anywhere with no cases. It's time to have several glasses cases in the place where glasses are often placed. Hard glasses cases can protect your glasses from external forces, including squeezing, scratching or other problems, and invisible scratches when you put them in your backpack. Hard glasses cases can help you avoid these problems. If the cases are portable enough to fit into your small bag, Vlook Optical's folded portable glasses case will be your best choice.

Fabrics and paper products can scratch the lenses, costing additional money when you need to buy a new pair. Never use household cleaners or vinegar on your glasses. They can strip the lenses of protective coatings. Microfiber glasses cloths are inexpensive and in small sizes that you can tuck into your glass case or wallet for easy use. A mild dish soap and water solution work all just fine, though you can also buy eyeglass cleaning solution at pharmacies.
