Current research, which is still evolving, shows that the chance of spreading the virus through the eyes is possible, but rare. Studies found only a small amount of virus in tears of infected individuals. That said, in alignment with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), you should take all necessary precautions to avoid touching your eyes.
While glasses may potentially provide some protection from COVID-19, that protection is limited to the shielded area of the eye. The virus can still reach your eyes from the exposed sides, tops and bottoms of your glasses. In alignment with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), you should take all necessary precautions to avoid touching your eyes.
COVID-19 is thought to remain on some materials for hours or days. For this reason, it’s advisable to regularly clean your glasses. A standard hand soap or glasses cleaning spray that contains detergent should be effective at removing potentially harmful microbes. Using antibacterial products such as hand sanitizer or household cleaning spray to clean your glasses is not recommended. This is because they probably contain alcohol or chemicals that could damage the lens surface of your glasses.
There are many studies that associate prolonged computer use with eye strain and discomfort. Ocular surface dryness (due to infrequent blinking) can result in symptoms. To minimize this, you should follow the 20-20-20 rule: take a break every 20 minutes and look at an object 20 feet away for at least 20 seconds. You can also change your computer display brightness, increase font size and minimize glare with proper lighting.

Keeping your sunglasses clean will help them - and you - look great and perform well. However, premium sunglasses
and especially their lenses require careful treatment. Improper care can damage lenses, resulting in scratches or
haziness, which in turn may cause eyestrain.
So, the best way to clean your sunglasses is by gently rubbing them with a lens cleaning cloth and a liquid cleaner
specifically designed for eyewear lenses, or with a pre-moistened lens towelette. It's also a good idea to occasionally
bring them into a Sunglass Hut store for a complimentary in-store cleaning and adjustment. Find a store near you at
To avoid damage, never clean your sunglasses with paper towels or clothing, which can grind dust and fibres into
lenses and leave scratches. Also avoid using household detergents or soaps. While a few mild soaps don't harm
lenses, today's extra strength soaps are powerful enough to slowly disintegrate lens coatings. Glass cleaners
especially are highly corrosive and can damage your lenses quickly. They are not designed for use on the non-glass
lens materials used in sunglasses.
While none of these products will do immediate apparent damage to your senses, over time and with repetition, the
damage will become visible.
