How do you store lots of glasses?
If you have many spectacles or sunglasses frames, it’s best to store them in the protective case they were originally sold with. However, if you’d like to store them all together in one place, a glasses wardrobe or sunglasses boxes are both great options. The most protective storage method is a hard-shell carry case with multiple compartments for all your frames. Hard-cases like these keep all your beloved eyeglasses in one place, deters dust and prevents the frames from scratching off one another. For serious eyewear collectors, this saves time searching through individual cases.
How do I hang my glasses?
The best way to hang your glasses is via the nose pads on a specifically designed eyeglass stand or spectacle holder. This method simulates how your glasses rest on your nose where the nose pads are the main point of contact. If for any reason your pads become scratched or worn slightly, this will be hidden from view when you’re wearing them. For more ways to hang your glasses, check out these methods you can make yourself at home.
How do you make a homemade eyeglass holder?
You can make your own homemade eyeglass holder from everyday household items or off the shelf DIY materials. Some examples include a coat hanger, an old picture frame or spare wood material. Scroll below for the best DIY sunglass storage ideas.
One of the simplest ways to make your own glasses wardrobe organiser is using an old coat hanger. A wooden hanger is less likely to scratch your frames compared to a metal one. So, keep this in mind if you’re going for this option.
A picture frame can make a great glasses wardrobe with some light DIY skills. By drilling some holes in the sides, you can run string across the cavity to make little rails for hanging your favourite spectacles and sunglasses. For a guide on how to make your own one, check out this handy guide.
This off-the-shelf display tray is a easy way to elevate your glasses wardrobe. If DIY isn’t your thing, this is a low-effort organiser for your frames. For a large eyewear collection, these trays are a nice to keep all your frames in the one place.

Why are my glasses crooked?
Spectacles or sunglasses made from cellulose acetate have the tendency to change shape over time. This is because acetate is soft and is designed to be adjusted to your face. Spectacles or sunglasses can become crooked for a number of reasons.
If your ears are asymmetrical, your frame’s temples (arms) can become ‘scissored’ where they don’t sit level on a table. This is perfectly normal and can actually make your glasses more comfortable to wear on your ears. Like a pair of jeans or leather boots, acetate glasses adapt to the shape of your head.
If you have a particularly strong prescription, your lens curvatures can warp an acetate frame front. Over time, your glasses can become flatter or more curved depending whether your lenses are concave or convex.
If you keep your glasses on top of your head, this puts stress on the hinges and can eventually make your glasses wider. This is an easy place to keep your glasses when you aren’t wearing them, but long term, this habit can damage the shape of your frame and make it less secure on your head.
If you take your glasses off with one hand, you’re likely doing this this squint. Over time, this habit can lead to squint temples (arms) and make your glasses wonky. The best way to take your glasses off is with two hands holding the frame front, straight, without pulling the frame to one side. Put them straight in their hard-case.
Where do I put my glasses when I’m not wearing them?
The best place to put your glasses when you aren’t wearing them is inside the protective case they were originally sold with. Spectacle cases prevent your frame becoming squashed or scratched which can lead to terminal or very expensive damage. Avoid keeping your glasses on top of your head as this can warp the frame, making it loose on your head.
How do you store your glasses without a case?
If you don't have a glasses case, use a clean sock or plastic food container lined with paper towel to store your glasses. Another method is to wrap your glasses in their microfibre cleaning cloth until you can buy a proper hard-case. A specifically designed glasses case usually has a microfibre lining to stop your frame and lenses becoming scratched.
Why should I keep my glasses in a case?
Spectacle or sunglasses cases are designed to prevent your glasses from becoming squashed, scuffed or scratched. Lens damage hinders optical performance, making it harder to see correctly. Misshapen glasses from being squashed will likely be loose, uncomfortable or completley broken. Replacement cases are low cost and readily available online or via your local optician.
How do you store your glasses at night?
If you need your glasses first thing in the morning, place them on your night stand using an eyeglass holder or spectacle stand to keep them safe and secure. Another option is to keep them in their protective hard case on a bedside table or nearby flat surface.
