We recommend you keep them in the original case when not in use. Vuarnet mineral lenses are scratch-resistant, but not scratch-proof. Keeping your glasses loose in your bag with items such as keys or nail files risks damaging them over time. Not only are 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 your glasses down, fold them up and put them with the arms in contact with the surface. Avoid putting your sunglasses face-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.

To clean your glasses 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, which you can easily find at your local 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.
