So, if you already own a pair of VivaRays wooden frames, you made an excellent conscious choice. You have chosen a product with significantly less production carbon footprint, less plastic, and is non-toxic. And you'll look and feel better too!
We’ve gathered up some tips on ways to take care of your wooden glasses:
1. Don’t rest your sunglasses on your forehead or clothing
As tempting as this may be, this will loosen the arms, weakening the frame. Keeping them on your head will also stretch and re-shape your eyewear, reducing fit.
2. Store them Properly
Use the bamboo hard case provided when not wearing. When removing your sunglasses, make sure to always store them securely in their case. Keeping them anywhere else but in a safe case can risk losing or breaking them.
3. Use the Microfibre pouch to wipe lenses after use
Do not use clothing as your clothes have micro-particles of dust and dirt which can damage the polarised or mirror coatings of any lens.4. Clean the frame and lenses with lightly soaped warm water
Do not use alcohol-based liquids, wiping a damp cloth with a tiny amount of washing-up liquid and warm water is more than enough for regular cleaning.
