How should I clean my monocle?
Clean your monocle with mild soap and warm water; dry with a soft cloth.
Can I adjust the galleries on my Classic Monocle?
The galleries are the rectangular frame extensions that hold the monocle in your eye.
Please do not bend the galleries on our Classic Monocles. The galleries are sturdy, and inflexible - if you squeeze them they will snap off!
What is diopter?
Diopter is a measure of optical power, and is slightly different from magnifying power. You can read more about diopter on Wikipedia.
+0.0 diopter = 0.00 x magnifying power
+2.0 diopter = 1.50 x magnifying power
+3.0 diopter = 1.75 x magnifying power
Can I put a prescription lens in my monocle?
Yes, it is possible to replace the standard lens in our monocles with a prescription lens from your optometrist. Please wait for your monocle to arrive, and then work with your optometrist to craft a suitable lens.
