How to take care of your glasses
First of all, they should either be on your face or in a case.
Secondly, the safest most effective way to clean them is to first rinse the glasses under the faucet to remove dust and dirt off the lenses. This is the primary reason they get scratched. Next, put a little amount of dishwashing detergent on your fingers and apply to each lens washing them gently. This will do a great job at cleaning without scratching. When you are done washing, rinse the glasses under the faucet again using your fingers to feel when all the soap is off the lenses. Shake much of the water off the lenses and blot it dry with a soft and absorbent paper towel.
If you are out and about and you can’t clean your glasses like this, blow as much of the dust and dirt that you can off the lenses and rub off any smudge you might have with an appropriate cleaning cloth. Be careful - if you have dirt on the lens, you will grind it in with the cloth causing it to scratch.
