Have you heard of the Peeps Eyeglass Cleaner?
They are made by Carbon Klean, a company that has made effective cleaners for camera lenses for years. They come in a handy little case about 3.5 inches long, 1 inch wide, and about 3/4 of an inch thick, and they can be found in a variety of colors. The cost is around $20 each on Amazon.
On one end of the Peeps is a retractable brush and the other opens up to cleaning pads that can be used to clean both sides of the lenses at a time. The instructions are simple: Use the brush to clean away any loose debris and then apply the cleaning pads to the lenses to receive a crystal clear view. Peeps are made specifically to help with that film used on most prescription glasses these days that is harder to clean. That’s because the pads have been “impregnated with a carbon compound” to pick up oils and grime.
From the various reviews on Amazon, there are a few things to keep in mind. For really dirty glasses, you may still want to use a spray and cloth cleaning first to get the worst off and then follow it up with the Peeps to get that sparkling clarity. You can use them on any type of glasses including safety goggles and sunglasses, prescription eye wear or otherwise.
Some found it easier to just clean one side of the lens at a time. But in either case, using a small amount of pressure over the pad gets the best results. Even with the various quirks listed here, most people like Peeps well enough to have several handy around their home, office, or vehicle. For those looking for a great stocking stuffer or gift for loved ones who wear glasses, this might be just the ticket. They are about the size of a mid to large pocket knife, so they can easily fit in a pocket or purse.
