How to Take Care of Your Sunglasses


The first step is to get rid of those beat up polycarbonate lenses you have and invest in a pair of durable, impact resistant trivex powered shades with a lifetime warranty and loss replacement coverage. If you lose or accidentally break them, reach out to us we have you covered. Breakline exclusively uses trivex lenses as they are more impact resistant, ansi-certified and have a z87.1 rating, are lighter than polycarbonate material and have optical clarity like glass or mineral lenses.  It’s not just about the quality of the lenses, but also the frame. We use TR90 Grilamid, which is a military-grade material known for it's chemical, heat and UV resistance as well as relative flexibility and shape retention.  With any sunglasses, there are extra steps you can take to ensure optimal clarity.

Cleaning Your Glasses

Skip the paper towel and Kleenex

Using a paper towel to clean your lenses, no matter the lens material, can cause micro scratches that not only get in the way of your vision but can affect the polarization. Although kleenex and tissues are softer and less likely to scratch your lenses, the residue used in most tissues to ensure you don’t dry out your skin leaves nasty smudges on your lenses.

Instead, only use microfiber cloths. When you purchase Breakline sunglasses we include a lens-safe microfiber cleaning cloth. Keep it in your case to ensure you’re never reaching for a paper towel or even worse, the hem of your t-shirt.

Water over lens cleaner

This is especially important when it comes to trivex lenses. Using a lens cleaner can deteriorate any lens material over time. Keep it simple and use either water with a little soap or even just warm water.

How to Store Your Sunglasses

You’ve got a case! Use it!

This a big one with any pair of sunglasses and that’s why we always include a protective travel case when you purchase Breaklines. Proper storage of your sunglasses when they aren’t in use can prevent wear and tear from your glasses bouncing around in a cup holder, handbag or from slipping off the top of your head.

Avoid Excessive Heat

Another reason to use your case is to protect your sunglasses from cooking in the hot sun if you leave them on your dashboard on a hot, sunny day. TR90 Grillamid frames are designed for intense durability so they can withstand quite a bit, but excessive exposure to heat isn't fun for anything really. 

Care Kit

Check those screws

Sunglasses are held together with tiny screws that can loosen over time. Every now and again check the screws on your shades. You can purchase a glasses care kit at most groceries stores and pharmacies. They're cheap and worth it!

Stuff happens!

You leave your shades on top of your car while you’re rushing to get to work, or maybe your new puppy chews them up when you’re not looking. We get it. That’s why we offer Lifetime Warranty and Loss Replacement for our sunglasses.  

If you’re ready to upgrade your eyewear to a more durable and impact resistant option, look no further! We’ve got you covered.
