Handling & Care

How should I clean my monocle?

Use our Nearsights cleaning materials to care for your monocle.

Rub gently with a microfiber (or other lint-free) cloth to remove smudges.  If necessary, wash your monocle with mild soap and warm water, and dry with a lint-free cloth.

Can I adjust the galleries on my Classic Monocle?

Monocle galleries are the frame extensions that are used to hold your monocle in your eye.

Please do not bend the galleries on our Classic Monocles!  The galleries are sturdy, and inflexible - if you squeeze them or try to adjust them they will snap off.
