- Hold the optical component by its edges, and view it from various angles under a bright light source to inspect the surface. If dust is apparent, use the Clean Air Duster. Since it’s contact-free, it’s known as the safest cleaning method.
- While pointing away from the optic, push down on the Clean Air Duster to release air. Slowly move the air stream over the optical surface at an angle. Repeat the same cleaning method to the other side of the lens or filter, if necessary.
- If you still see dust or contaminants, try using a clean Cotton Swab or dry Premium Grade Optical Tissue to dislodge the debris by gently brushing across the surface, then use the Clean Air Duster again to try and dislodge any remaining debris.
- If further cleaning is required, use Glass Surface Cleaner to remove stubborn deposits. Fold the Premium Grade Optical Tissue into quarters, and apply the Glass Surface Cleaner. For lens or filter surfaces that are hard to access, use a Cotton Swab with Glass Surface Cleaner.
- For extremely tough spots on durable hard coatings, acetone can be used. However, do not clean plastic optics or optics in plastic housings with acetone, as it will damage the plastic. (MidOpt Glass Surface Cleaner contains alcohol and is safe on plastic.)
- Gently dab the area – never rub the lens or filter surface. Use another dry, folded Premium Grade Optical Tissue or Cotton Swab to dab the surface dry. Throw away Optical Tissues and Cotton Swabs after each use.
