Cleaning glasses is something a must for glasses wearers. Many think it is a simple, easy task, but it also needs some skills to make glasses clean enough.

For those who wear blue light glasses, there are some effective ways to clean your blue light glasses as well as maintain their condition, so that they can work well and last for a longer period.

Before getting some tips on how to clean blue light glasses, it is important to clarify what we want to move from our glasses. Dirt, dust and grime will build up on your glasses after a certain period, and sometimes annoying dirt or grease will even stuck on your glasses.

There are several coatings for some blue light glasses, such as blue light filters or anti-reflective coatings. Hence keeping the lenses clean is necessary, since it can preserve the effectiveness of these coatings. Moreover, bacteria are easy to grow on your glasses if you don’t clean it regularly.

Read the methods below to clean blue light glasses and keep clear vision for yourself.

1.Mild hand soap and warm water

The easiest way of cleaning glasses is gently wiping the lenses with a clean, dry microfiber cloth. But for stubborn smudges or dirt, you can clean your blue light glasses with a mild soap or lukewarm water. (Hot water may damage the blue light coating.)

Apply a small drop of gentle hand soap or dishwashing liquid and lather the lenses. Then rinse the glasses thoroughly under running warm water, removing all soap residue. Pat the glasses dry with a dry microfiber cloth or let them air dry, making sure that there is no scratches, streaks, marks, or lint.


Use enough water to produce a sufficient amount of steam, and find a stable surface to place your glasses on while cleaning. Make sure it's heat-resistant. Once the water is boiling, carefully hold your blue light glasses above the steam. Be cautious not to expose them to direct contact with the boiling water.

Hold the glasses in a place where the steam can reach both sides of the lenses. The steam will help to loosen any dirt, smudges, or oils on the surface. Wait for a few seconds, remove the glasses from the steam, and then wipe the lenses with a microfiber cloth. Use gentle, circular motions to remove any residue or smudges.

Inspect the lenses to ensure they are clean. If there are still smudges or dirt remaining, repeat the process by holding the glasses above the steam again and wiping them with the cloth.

3.Lens cleaner

There are special lens cleaners available to blue light glasses. These sprays are designed to remove smudges and stains quickly without scratching the lenses. Follow the instructions of the spray and then use a clean microfiber cloth to wipe the lenses.

Useful tips for maintaining your blue light glasses

Use microfiber cloth:

Microfiber is designed to remove smudges and debris without scratching the lenses and damaging the coatings. Avoid using regular paper towels or tissues, as they can leave lint or scratch the lenses.

Avoid harsh chemicals:

Avoid using harsh chemicals, such as ammonia-based cleaners, bleach, or window cleaners, as they can damage the lens coatings or frame materials. Stick to mild, gentle cleaning solutions.

Avoid excessive pressure or rubbing:

When cleaning your blue light glasses, avoid applying excessive pressure or rubbing the lenses vigorously. This can potentially scratch or damage the lens coatings. Instead, use gentle, circular motions to clean the lenses.

Store properly:

When you're not wearing your blue light glasses, store them in a glassescase to prevent dust, scratches, or accidental damage. Avoid placing them face down on hard surfaces, as this may lead to scratches.
