Most eyeglasses wearers are guilty of the biggest crime in cleaning their lenses. It is never sensible to wipe one’s lens with the sleeves or any part of their shirt. The dust and dirt particles on a shirt will most likely do more damage to the lenses. Moreover, if the fabric of the shirt is not soft, it will leave scratches on the lenses too.

One should also avoid exhaling on the lens before wiping it. It is not the correct method to clean one’s lenses. Moreover, it is unhygienic too.
One should never use bleach, ammonia, vinegar or window cleaner while cleaning lenses. The chemicals may strip or break down the coatings on the lenses.
