Glasses cleaning with ultrasonic devices - a professional conclusion

As a master optician, we would like to tell you everything you need to know about cleaning glasses with ultrasonic devices. Ultrasonic devices are currently on everyone's lips as a revolutionary method of cleaning glasses, but do you also know how they work, what advantages and disadvantages they can have and what you should pay special attention to when using them? In this article you will find out everything you need to know about ultrasonic devices and what you should consider before buying an ultrasonic bath.

Glasses cleaning can sometimes be frustrating. Constantly wiping with microfiber cloths and lens cleaning cloths and using cleaning sprays is time-consuming and often inefficient. When looking for the right method to clean glasses holistically, many come across ultrasonic devices. An ultrasonic device, also known as a goggle bath, can take your cleaning routine to a whole new level.

Let's quickly answer the three key questions about ultrasonic eyeglass cleaning:

How does an ultrasonic bath for glasses work?

Ultrasonic cleaners work with sound waves that create tiny bubbles in the cleaning liquid. These bubbles burst and thus create the cleaning effect that is also effective in hard-to-reach places.

How do you use an ultrasound machine?

To clean glasses with an ultrasonic cleaner, fill the device with the recommended amount of cleaning liquid, put your glasses in and start the cleaning cycle. Cleaning in the ultrasonic bath takes a few minutes.

How often can glasses be cleaned in the ultrasonic device?

The frequency with which you should clean glasses in the ultrasonic bath depends on various factors. For example the type of glasses, the cleaning solution, or the material of the glasses. As a rule, however, it is recommended not to clean the glasses in an ultrasonic bath more than once a week in order to avoid possible damage.

Advantages and disadvantages of ultrasonic devices

BENEFITS: Effectiveness: Ultrasonic cleaners thoroughly remove dirt and debris. Time saving: The cleaning cycle takes a few minutes. Cleaning result: Very good when used correctly, since even hard-to-reach areas can be cleaned.

CONS: Complex application requirement: Ultrasonic cleaners should not be used without expertise or extensive experience with appropriate materials as not all glass can be cleaned in an ultrasonic cleaner. Excessive use can damage eyewear and surfaces, especially plastic lenses or delicate coatings. Special care is required for glasses with colored lenses, laser engraving and sensitive materials. Loudness & Size: The cleaning process is noisy and the equipment is often bulky and takes up a lot of space. Price: Ultrasonic cleaning devices are expensive to buy and not mobile. Maintenance: Ultrasonic baths require regular professional cleaning and maintenance

The conclusion of a master optician:

If you are not quite sure whether your glasses are suitable for the use of ultrasonic devices, you would like to clean your glasses daily or at least several times a week and you would prefer to clean your glasses flexibly and easily, it is better to use other glasses cleaning agents and tools.

We advise you to only use products that have been specially developed for cleaning glasses in order to keep your glasses of the highest quality for as long as possible. Ask your optician which products they recommend for your glasses or trust qualified or certified manufacturers who specialize in cleaning glasses.
