How To Care For Vintage Cat Eye Glasses

To care for vintage cat eye glasses all you need to do is clean them on a regular basis with warm soapy water (use a gentle non abrasive soap) and then rinse clean. Dry them off with a soft dry cloth. You can use eye glass cleaner on the lenses too if you prefer and wipe clean with a soft dry cloth.

Cat eye glasses are like any other type of glasses and can scratch easily. To prevent scratching your glasses put them in an eye glasses case when you are not wearing them and use a soft cloth when wiping them clean. Always be careful how you handle them so that you do not drop them. Also use both hands when putting them on, so as not to bend the frames out of shape.

Vintage glasses of this kind are to be handled with care because of their age. They are sensitive to extreme heat so make sure not to leave them on the dashboard of your car in a sunny parking lot on a hot summer day as this can cause the plastic to dry out and shorten the life of your frames. Also, check the screws on the side of your glasses to make sure that they are tightened, in order to maintain a proper fit. Do a routine check on your vintage glasses so that you know they stay in great condition.

Olive Green Rhinestone Vintage Cat Eye Glasses

Just added a new pair of glasses to my etsy store. Lovely pair of vintage rhinestone studded frames by Marine USA. Has aluminum brows and arms, with a plastic frame. Accented with bright sparkly aurora borealis rhinestones. There are four rhinestones missing on the left arm, but the polished aluminum sparkles in it’s place (see shop for other photos). Frames are in great vintage condition, clean 4 barrel hinges, sturdy arms, light normal vintage wear. Frames still contain the original lenses which can be removed and replaced with your own prescription lenses or sunglass lenses by your optician.
