For every day cleaning, we recommend using the microfiber cleaning cloth that comes with each Crizal set of lenses. This cleaning cloth is the best material for cleaning lenses. Additional cleaning cloths can be purchased on this website or at any optical store.
The best way to clean your lenses is by first rinsing your lenses under warm, running water to remove any sandy/gritty debris that could be dragged across the surface of the lenses during cleaning and potentially scratch your lenses. Clean with a mild liquid dishwashing soap to remove facials oils, which if not removed, can smear across the lenses. Rinse with water and then dry with a soft cotton cloth. Finish by polishing your lenses with the Crizal cleaning cloth provided to you. You can also use the Crizal cloth for touch up cleaning throughout the day when it is not convenient to wash the lenses.
While the hydrophobic properties of Crizal facilitate the removal of smudges, dust, dirt, and fingerprints more easily, the smudges and fingerprints may appear more visible on Crizal lenses than with on a non-coated lens.
Cleaning cloths can be washed on the gentle cycle in the washer or hand washed. We recommend that you do not use any laundry additives (such as fabric softener) which could leave a residue on the cloth. Additional cleaning cloths can be purchased on this website or at any optical shop.
Occasional use of alcohol on Crizal lenses will not be harmful. However, we do not recommend continuous, daily use of alcohol
If you cannot remove the hairspray with a mild detergent wash and running water, we recommend taking your lenses to your eye care professional for evaluation and removal of the hairspray from your lenses.
Any commercially prepared lens cleaner formulated to be used with anti-reflective lenses can be used with Crizal lenses.
It is not advisable to store eyeglasses in your automobile (eg, leaving them on the dashboard of your car), especially in the warmer climates. It is potentially damaging to the lenses and to the frame.
