4 Things That Can Damage Your Sunglasses

Last updated 5 years ago



When you find the perfect pair of sunglasses, you need to properly maintain them to ensure that you can get the most use out of them. Keep your shades away from the following things to avoid unnecessary damage and extend the life of your new favorite form of eye protection:

Sharp Objects

Whether you have Oakleys or Ray-Bans, it is important to look out for your lenses. Sharp objects like keys and pens can scratch the surface of the lenses, ruining the effect of the sunglasses. When you are not wearing them, place your sunglasses into a protective case that will keep the lenses safe.


Your glasses are exposed to body oil, sweat, sunscreen, and dust that will build up on the lenses and eventually cause scratches. Use a quality lens cleaner and a cloth that is safe for sunglasses to keep them clean and in top condition.

Improper Removal

Consistently removing your glasses in the wrong way will damage the frames. Try to break the habit of taking off your shades with only one hand. If you carefully slip them off using both hands, you can maintain the frame’s original condition. This will help you keep your glasses fitting well and looking great for a long period of time.


Your glasses are designed to protect your eyes from the sun, but even they have their limits when it comes to heat. Avoid leaving your glasses in a hot car or other confined space. If the temperature climbs too high, you run the risk of warping your favorite sunglasses.
