I wearing Crizal lens now. Lots of scratches.

Any advice how to better take care of my lens? I usually use my t-shirt and towel to wipe them.

I was reading what's the differences between different indexes of lens and one of the advantages of high index is scratch resistance.

Does higher index means I can clean my lens using my t-shirt or towel?
Many do not know the proper ways of cleaning lenses and the shop staff will not tell u also since the longer u use the lenses the poorer their business.

One should
1) flush ur lenses with running water (this is to remove any dust etc. on the lenses before you do any cleaning as it will scratch the lenses)
2) use mild or diluted detergent to clean the lenses with ur fingers.
3) flush it clean with running water.
4) flush it with slow running water to get rid of the water residue on the lenses.
5) if necessary, dry the lenses with tissue paper by soft touching the lenses (not wipe)

If u do these all time with ur lenses, u can hardly find scratches on ur lenses even years of usage.
