Cocoons patented framework is incredibly resilient and designed to withstand years of active wear. Although no lens is 100% shatter-proof, scratch-proof, or completely unbreakable, our premium Polaré lens systems are extremely durable and provide exceptional scratch-resistance.  With proper care and cleaning, they will provide years of crystal clear performance.  It’s important to remember that improper use of harsh cleaning agents or other abrasive materials can scratch or haze the lenses, which may in turn cause eyestrain. To keep your Cocoons in optimum condition, we recommend following our use and care guidelines.

Use & Care Recommendations

Keeping Your Cocoons Clean

Sand and other abrasive debris can be damaging to the lens surface. Whenever your glasses get dirty, it’s important to clean them as soon as you can. Leaving debris on the lens surface can contribute to reduced lens clarity if not properly removed in a timely manner. When not using your Cocoons, storing them in the case provided will help keep them clean as well.

We recommend always using a micro-fiber cloth to clean your Cocoons. Do not use paper towels, tissue paper, or clothing, as they may grind dust and fibers into the lens surface, creating minute scratches that over time will cloud or haze the lens, diminishing visual acuity. Each pair of Cocoons fitovers includes a complimentary micro-fiber cleaning cloth. We recommend keeping it in your case so it’s always accessible. We also offer a jumbo-sized cleaning towel. These towels make cleaning the glasses much easier and are one of our most popular optional accessories. It is important to periodically wash your micro-fiber cleaning cloth. All of official Cocoons cloths and towels are machine washable.

Lens Cleaning Solutions

It’s always best to use a lens cleaning solution specifically developed for eyewear. Avoid using household detergents, cleansers, or soaps, as they can potentially  degrade the lens surface. While some mild soaps won’t harm lenses, today’s extra-strength soaps are powerful enough to disintegrate lens coatings. Glass cleaners are also highly corrosive and can damage your lenses quickly. While none of these products will do immediate apparent damage to your Polaré lenses, over time (and especially with repetition), the damage will become apparent. Cleaning your Cocoons with household or industrial cleaners can potentially damage the lenses and possibly the frame finish.  Damage caused by improper care is not covered under warranty.

We recommend using our Cocoons Lens Cleaning Solution. The solution is specially formulated to safely clean eyewear lenses while also providing an anti-fog and anti-static treatment that will help keep the lenses clear of contaminants between cleanings. The 2oz spray bottle typically lasts up to six months with normal daily use.


Storing Your Cocoons

Properly storing your Cocoons in the included case when not wearing them will prolong the frame finish and other frame components.  Never store your Cocoons in spaces with extremely high temperatures or lots of direct sunlight, such as the dashboard of an unventilated car. Prolonged exposure to high temperatures can damage the Soft Touch finish and possibly the lens substrate. Avoid placing your Cocoons (not in the case) in a purse or pocket, as items like keys or combs can potentially scratch the lenses. When setting your Cocoons down, avoid placing them with the lenses facing down, as this can potentially scratch the lens surface.

To keep your Cocoons close-at-hand, we offer a selection of 100% cotton Cocoons lanyards . If you’re constantly in and out of the sun, a lanyard is an extremely convenient accessory. Our cotton lanyards feature an adjustable toggle, which allows you to secure the Cocoons tightly when wearing them during everyday use and athletic activity.

Looking for a case that has room for both your Cocoons fitovers and your prescription glasses? Our Tandem dual compartment case is the perfect answer.  It features a large compartment for your fitover sunglasses and an additional hard-shell compartment for storing and protecting your more delicate prescription eyewear.
