    Confused Covid 19 concerns

    Good day to all.
    With the immediate and present threat of the Covid 19 virus I would like to have my stores and everything they contain sanitized/ sterilized for the safety of my employees and patients. Apart from the main stream precautions and preventative measures that I have adopted I am looking for a way to sanitize my frames and lenses after and before being handled by patients.

    What product is there that would allow for sanitizing spectacles without damaging the frames and lenses?

    Please help.

    Going to piggyback on this thread. Would say, canned Lysol damage zyl frames? I need to sanitize our stock, but I don't want to use alcohol.

    Hi Lawman Nick,
    What I've found is that all other chemicals used have the problem with leaving residue which over time have the potential to damage both frames and lenses. Isopropyl alcohol at 70% does not dry/ damage the frame once used sparingly and for limited time as in a quick wipe. I would caution against using lab grade isopropyl alcohol at 99% since my experience with it was a frame that literally fell apart in my hands.

    I tried 70% isopropyl alcohol on several pairs of spectacles with great results so far.

    Cheers
