How do I Clean Oleophobic Lenses?
May 13, 2013 5:32 PM   Subscribe

I purchased eyeglasses with an oleophobic coating, and they're great. I can't find complete information on cleaning, though. I understand I can use plain water or a soft cloth. Can I use ordinary hand soap? Bar soap? What's best? Thanks in advance.

I find that a microfiber cloth and a little bit of water is typically enough, though if you ask at your optician they may have a light solvent spray that's safe for oleophobic coatings.

I've found that just rinsing under very hot water cleans my eyeglasses the best.

You understand that you can use plain water.

Use plain water then.
