Re: Best And Worst Lens Cleaners We Tested

I found this by searching for the "best lens cleaning solution."

Since you recommend your recipe for eye ware, I should mention that my optician specifically recommended against cleaning solutions that contain alcohol because it can damage the anti-glare and UV-protective coating. My wife bought her glasses from a different optician, but received the same warning.

I see elsewhere that you say it's a myth, but presumably you only had the anti-reflective coating in mind. After all, cameras don't need UV protection.

I don't know if it's true or not, but the next time I get a pair of glasses, I'm going to make a point to find out what brand of coatings they use, then contact the manufacturer and ask their opinion about alcohol-containing cleaning solution.

I hope they confirm that it's a myth, because the idea of cheap homemade solution really appeals to me.
