Keep them in the original case. Indeed, even though Vuarnet mineral lenses resist scratches very well, your bunch of keys or a nail file in the bottom of your handbag risk damaging them with time. Result; not only are the scratches unsightly, but they also seriously affect your visual comfort.
When you take your glasses off, do so with both hands. In this way you protect the frame hinges.
When you put them down, fold them up and put them with the arms in contact with the surface; avoid putting your sunglasses down on the lenses, there's no better way to damage them.
Once back from the beach, simply rinse them under tepid water to remove sand and salt traces.
Is there a specific product for cleaning my glasses?

To clean your glasses simply at home, use a mild liquid soap. To rinse them, pass under cold or lukewarm water. Avoid using hot water at all costs. Dirty or abrasive cloths should also be avoided as they may modify the lens characteristics.
You may also choose a glass cleaning spray, usually on sale at your optician. In this case, wipe them with the chamois cloth usually supplied with the original case. If you have lost it, use a very fine, soft fabric to wipe them.
In some cases where you do not manage to clean your glasses properly as indicated above, you may wish to see your optician. Most opticians possess ultrasound equipment for cleaning glasses. It is suggested to let them soak in an ultrasound water bath: this will remove any impurities stuck to the frames. Most of the time, this service is provided free of charge by your optician.
This may be done every 2 months for complete cleaning.

We perform detailed and complete testing procedures on both lenses and frames.
Three tests are performed on the lens during the manufacturing process:
- Inspection of the polished glass quality; individual check of the glass polishing.
- Shock resistance measurement by ball-test; a ball weighing 16 grams is dropped from a height of 1.27 m onto the lens to test its shock resistance.
- Inspection of treated lenses, under specific lighting conditions to ensure that the glass has no scratches/imperfections.
Each frame is individually checked before the product is packaged.

On each product leaflet, we indicate the temple width (distance between your temples) and the frame size (S for Small, M for Medium or L for Large) in order to help you select the pair of sunglasses most suited for your face.
To figure out know the temple width of your face, use a ruler to measure the distance between the two horizontal screws of the arms on your current glasses. (If you have a fine/angular/large round, we recommend the size small/medium/large).
Size S refers to a temporal distance of 127-134 mm, size M to 130-163 mm and finally size L to 133-139 mm.
