Did you know that sunglasses were first used in China in the 12th century or possibly earlier. They say that the “lenses” of these glasses were flat panes of smoky quartz, which offered no corrective powers but did protect the eyes from glare, and, according to some sources, evil spirits. Contemporary documents describe the use of such glasses by judges in Chinese courts to conceal their facial expressions while questioning witnesses. Compare the representation of “blind Justice” in Western art.
In addition, it is said that the Roman emperor Nero liked to watch gladiator fights through polished gems to recreate with the color and image distortion.
Since we already knew a little history of our sunglasses, we would probably appreciate more and make sure we take good care of our sunglasses. Besides the added cost of a replacement, once you find a pair of sunglasses that fits right and flatters your facial features, you want to keep them. Here are some of the ways how to care for your sunglasses to make them last longer.
1. Do Not Put Your Sunglasses in Places with Extreme Heat and Cold
Leaving your sunglasses in your car is not a good idea. On a sunny day, the heat inside your car can be really hot. Heat and cold can damage the coating of the frame and the lens too.
2. Use Your Sunglasses With Care
Avoid stretching the side arms and bending the frame by using both hands to put your sunglasses on and take them off. Avoid wearing them on top of your head because doing stretch them out of shape and scratch the lens.
3. Clean Your Shades Daily
One way you can take care your sunglasses and make them last longer is, clean them at least once a day or whenever the lens get dirty. Make sure to follow the manufacturer’s directions for cleaning them. Remember not to use paper towels or any other rough materials in cleaning the lens.
4. Buy and Use a Sturdy Case
Throwing your sunglasses into your tote bag or purse and they’re at a high risk of getting scratched, bent or even broken. The best way to protect them is to put them in a case that’s hard on the outside and soft on the inside. Place your sunglasses in their case when you’re not wearing them.
