How to Properly Clean Your Glasses, Sunglasses or Camera Filters

How to Properly Clean Your Glasses, Sunglasses or Camera Filters

Watch our new video: DIY — How to Find the Proper Lens Strength for Your New Eyeglasses https://youtu.be/JnKZv55sJgM Hello and welcome to the TranslatorsCafe.com Channel! In this video I am going to explain how to clean your eyeglasses or sunglasses with or without anti-reflecting and oleophobic coating. Many people clear lenses of their glasses like this: they exhale onto their lenses and then wipe the fog off with a dirty piece of cloth. In a couple of months their plastic lenses are damaged and much to the joy of opticians they order a new pair of glasses in less than a year. When 10 years ago I started wearing reading glasses every day, I did not know how to clean them. I saw many products for cleaning and even tried several of them until I found the best way to clean my eyeglasses without scratching them — to wash them. It should be noted that when I made a research before starting making this video, I realized that the idea is not new and that many people clean their glasses this way! The first thing: never ever dry your lenses with paper towels, which contain wood fibers that can scratch your lenses. Also, never use even 100% cotton material, which can also be filled with dust, which contain abrasive particles. Although you can use special cleaning solutions, don’t do it if you don’t want to waste your money. The cost of water, drop of isopropyl alcohol and a drop of dishwasher liquid is almost zero comparing to the cost of cleaning solutions. Just wash away dust from your lenses with warm water. Then apply dishwasher liquid to both sides of the lens and rub them gently. Rinse with tap water, then do a final rinse with distilled water. The distilled water is necessary if your tap water is hard. Dry then with an air blower or with a compressed gas duster. Your lenses will be clear and clean with no scratches. So, here are the steps: Wash your hands to remove grease from your fingers. Rinse your eyeglasses with warm water to wash away dust from your lenses. Put just a little bit of dish soap between your fingers. Dish soap is designed to remove oily and greasy residue from your dishes. This is what you want to do to your glasses! You want to remove grease! Apply the soap thoroughly with your fingers in circular motions on both sides of the lenses. You can also continue applying the soap onto the rest of the frame, including the temples, bridge and nose pieces. Rinse your glasses under warm water, which will remove the soap. Do not use your fingers while rinsing. If your tap water is hard, that is, it contains dissolved minerals of calcium and magnesium, then you will need to rinse your glasses in the distilled water. After rinsing, shake or tap your glasses against your knee to remove water drops. Now use an air blower or compressed gas duster and blow all water that remained after tapping. If you used distilled water, blowing is not necessary. Water will dry without any traces of salts on the glass. All glasses and sunglasses often come with a little cloth. Opticians put this little cloth with one reason: they want you to come to them more often! Any cloth and especially paper towels and any other paper products will scratch your lenses because they contain abrasive particles. Besides, cloth and paper usually just smear dirt all over the lenses. When you use the compressed gas blower, press its trigger gently because it can “spit” liquid in the gas stream. If this happens, you will have to repeat cleaning with soap and water. You can wipe any residual water only from lens edges. A note about alcohol. Some people say alcohol can remove lens coatings and leave a fogged lens. I used isopropyl alcohol to clean particular greasy lenses and never noticed any problem. Isopropyl alcohol is also used in commercially available pre-moistened lens cloth. The same technique can be used to clean camera lens filters used when taking pictures with a DSLR camera. Wash them with dishwasher detergent, then rinse with running water, and then do a final rinse with distilled water. After that blow off all drops with an air blower. Unfortunately, this technique cannot be used to clean the front elements of your lenses.

The Eyeglasses Guide for Men, Part I: History & Style Overview

Edelweiss Boutonniere - https://gentl.mn/2NhSSMP 3. Eagle Claw Cufflinks with Tiger's Eye Balls - https://gentl.mn/2P6isVy 4. Dark Bronze Madder Silk Pocket Square with Diamond Motif and Paisley - https://gentl.mn/2Mwu2wl #eyeglasses #notsponsored #gentlemansgazette Basic anatomy of what makes glasses eyeglasses. As you might well imagine, they're constructed of several different parts that work together. Most pairs typically consist of a pair of rims which secure the lenses. A bridge which connects the rims, and temples which extend over the ears. Depending on the style of glasses, other details may also exist including nose pads, temple tips, or a brow bar across the top. But we'll get into those details later. First, let's talk about the various construction materials that can be used to make eyeglasses starting with plastic. Cellulose acetate is a plastic polymer that's made from wood pulp and then molded into sheets. Individual frames are then cut from these sheets and hand polished. This is a little bit more labor-intensive than using simple extruded plastic so that's where a little bit of the extra cost comes from. As a plus, acetate is stiffer, heavier, and more durable than standard plastic so that's why it's a good choice for eyeglasses. Multicolored patterns such as tortoiseshell are far more beautiful than acetate since the pattern was created over an entire sheet. If it were extruded plastic, that pattern would have to be painted on which generally doesn't look as nice. Next up, metal. Often you'll see glasses constructed from titanium, aluminum, or various alloys. They're typically corrosion resistant which is a good thing if they're going to be sitting on faces that might sweat. Metal is particularly well suited to thinner frames especially in round or rectangular shapes. Lastly here, let's talk about natural frames. Though they're a bit harder to find and generally more expensive, you are still able to find natural frames and such materials as wood, bone, or shell. Horn is another option often from a buffalo or a deer they're usually hand-carved and then polished and because of their striations and matte finish, they end up being a really elegant choice. Tortoiseshell is largely illegal these days. Any shell that was harvested after 1973 is not allowed to be sold but if you're particularly determined, you could probably find a pair at a vintage retailer. Next, let's talk about some recommended styles of eyeglasses. First, let's talk about brow line glasses which are defined by a top-heavy strong frame along the brow line and across the temples. The frame is completed along the bottom by thin metal wires which have the general effect of drawing the eye upwards towards the more defined part at the top. Round metal frames have typically been the choice for the counterculture, youth culture, and other sorts of resistance movements, and in the last few years, we've started to see them re-enter the mainstream again. Favored by people including Steve Jobs, Gandhi, and John Lennon, they're a choice for somebody who feels that they are just a little bit outside of the mainstream. Unlike round metal frames, round plastic frames with a keyhole bridge are the epitome of stylish mainstream menswear. These frames can add maturity to youthful faces but unlike browline glasses, they also work perfectly well on seasoned gentlemen too. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Want to stay updated?

Amazon-Backed Smart Glasses For $1,000: First Look

Amazon-Backed Smart Glasses For $1,000: First Look

A start-up called North, formally Thalmic Labs, is introducing a pair of smart glasses that it thinks will appeal to the masses because the design looks so similar to normal glasses. They're called Focals, and they cost around $1,000. Focals connect to your phone via Bluetooth and have a small projector that beams data into the wearer's eyes. They can tell the wearer the weather or time, read text messages and even order an Uber. The glasses are also connected to Alexa, so if you can ask them for directions or information, a small speaker will tell you the answers. North has raised over $140 million from investors including the Amazon Alexa Fund, Spark Capital, Intel Capital and Y Combinator. » Subscribe to CNBC: http://cnb.cx/SubscribeCNBC About CNBC: From 'Wall Street' to 'Main Street' to award winning original documentaries and Reality TV series, CNBC has you covered.

$200 Sunglasses: What are you Paying For | BeatTheBush

$200 Sunglasses: What are you Paying For | BeatTheBush

Ever wonder why sunglasses are as expensive as they are? You will be surprised to find the majority of the price comes from a near monopoly the company has on the sunglasses industry. From my analysis of the public financial statements, the majority of what you are paying for is spent on licensing fees and a majority on the inefficiencies of running the company. .

5 Ways to Improve Your Eyesight Without Glasses

5 Ways to Improve Your Eyesight Without Glasses

How to improve your vision at home? How to say goodbye to your glasses without expensive surgery? Here’s a list of 5 effective home remedies that will help you improve your vision naturally and boost your eyes. These remedies you most likely have at home have proven their effectiveness over centuries. TIMESTAMPS Aloe vera 0:56 Ginkgo biloba 4:18 Green tea 5:29 Bilberry 6:41 Almonds 7:21 Music: Someways - Nicolai Heidlas is licensed under a Creative Commons license (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/) SUMMARY -Aloe vera is a great source of important vitamins and antioxidants that help with white blood cell production and tissue recovery. Aloe vera is effective enough even when used alone, but we’ll spice it up with following ingredients: 1 lb of ground walnuts, 300 ml of pure honey and freshly squeezed juice from 4 lemons. -Ginkgo biloba can help relieve anxiety and boost your memory and thinking process, which is especially good for people with dementia and Alzheimer’s. As for our vision, it’s great at increasing blood flow to the eyes. -Green tea is rich in antioxidants called flavonoids, which fight off free radicals that can cause a number of eye diseases, like glaucoma, macular degeneration and cataracts. -Bilberries improve nighttime vision, and help regenerate important parts of the retina, which can be damaged because of high blood pressure and diabetes. -Raw almonds are a natural source of omega-3 fatty acid, vitamin E and antioxidants, all of which are great at improving vision. What you have to do is soak 5 to 10 nuts overnight. When you wake up in the morning, peel and grind them.

Now before we talk about a normal set of sunglasses and a pair of polarized ones and how they affect your vision we quickly need to discuss unpolarized and polarized light waves. The light emitting from the sun releases light particles, better known as Photons. These photons vibrate up and down, or side to side creating a bundle of light waves flying towards planet earth. Which means that the light provided by the sun flys in horizontal or vertical waves, therefore making the light waves unpolarized. But, the sunlight can untangle itself pretty easily. Those light particles just have to strike something, like a lake or in our case clouds, and they'll start vibrating in the same direction. Meaning all the photons start oscillating in the direction that's perpendicular to that surface. So, the light particles that bounce off a horizontal surface will then begin oscillating vertically. Meaning the reflected particles suddenly have fallen into sync reflecting as polarized light. Which brings us back to our polarized sunglasses. I admit the name was not well chosen, they should have called them "sunglasses with vertical or horizontal bars", which are able to block polarized light. So let´s say the sun light which gets reflected off a cloud, is coming vertically towards you, giving you that nasty glare. Now if you put on your polarized sunglasses with "horizontal bars" in them, they will block the vertical light waves and reduce the glare. Now you´ll think that´s great, cause pilots see sunlight reflecting clouds most of their time, so why can´t they wear polarized sunglasses? Here comes the problem! Watch the rest of the video to learn more about polarized sunglasses influence your vision in a modern airliner cockpit!

How to Make Eyeglasses from Scratch

How to Make Eyeglasses from Scratch

In my next quest, I’m attempting to make a pair of prescription eyeglasses for myself, starting from their natural sources. With some guidance from Dr. Lewis Dartnell, I collected sand, limestone, and hardwood ashes to melt down into the glass. Then I figured out how to grind the lenses down to the correct curvature to match my prescription. I also made the frames for them out of a tree.
