Cleaning after Work

This is due to the underlying nature of industrial vocations. Hence, after taking a shower once you get home, always clean your glasses with running water to clean the debris & dust on the lens & frames. Make sure that you use a lint-free cloth so no smudges or threads of the fabric are left behind on the lens. Microfiber cloth is often prescribed due to the soft bristles on the very fabric which do not induce scratches on the lens surface.
