Sweet Protection Eyewear Care
Your Sweet Protection goggle or sunglasses are made to withstand quite a lot of hard treatment. Still, treating the product with respect and following a few of our simple guidelines you will prolong the lifetime of the product and ensure that your eyewear will deliver when you need it the most. In this guide we have gathered our best tips for lens care, storage, use and lens change.
General storage, transportation and maintenance of your eyewear
When not in use or when carrying them around, store the sunglasses in their case at a temperature between -10°C and +35°C. Keep away from direct sunlight and avoid exposure to high temperatures, such as the heat in a car without conditioning (e.g. car dashboard), because high temperatures may alter the features of the lenses.
Outer lenses – goggles: The outer lens is treated with a super oleophobic and a hydrophobic coating to help clear visibility and to make sure the goggles are easy to clean and maintain. To help preserve the optical quality of Sweet Protection outer lenses, your new eyewear comes with a woven, microfiber cloth bag specially designed for cleaning and storage. Hand wash and air dry the microfiber bag regularly.
Anti-fog inner lenses – goggles: To avoid fogging of the goggles, each inner lens is embedded with a premium anti-fog treatment. Do not touch or rub the inner lens, as you will deteriorate/ damage the anti-fog treatment. To clean the anti-fog inner lens, gently touch the inner lens surface with a clean microfiber cloth/goggle bag to absorb excess moisture. Do not use the Sweet Protection lens cleaning kit or any other cleaning agent on the inner lens.

Lens installation and removal
It is important that you only insert the correct lens manufactured for the specific goggle or sunglasses, e.g. it is only the Interstellar goggle whereas the Interstellar lenses fit. You get the picture. Still, we have to inform that failure to comply will affect the optical performance as the lenses will not stay put and will cause interference with your vision. In the following your will find instructional films on how to install and remove lenses for the Sweet Protection eyewear range.
Cleaning, care and maintenance of your goggles
If snow or water should collect inside the goggle, follow these steps:
Shake excess snow from the goggle interior. Clear all ventilation ports and lens vents. Use the goggle bag that is included with your goggle to gently blot any remaining moisture.
Allow time for moisture to dissipate. Once the goggle is put back on, keep moving as much as possible. Airflow through the vents will help dry the goggle. Follow these guidelines to maximize performance and longevity:
Avoid resting the goggle on your forehead, hat or helmet. This reduces the efficiency of ventilation ports and exposes the interior to moisture vapor from melting snow, perspiration and body oils. To minimize fogging, always keep your goggles on your face. For proper cleaning and storage, remember the following:
Do not use paper products, ski gloves or other abrasive materials to clean the goggle.
Allow the goggle to air dry before storing for extended periods.
Do not leave the goggle in areas of concentrated heat and sunlight, such as on a car dashboard or hanging from a rearview mirror.
Protect the lens and face foam by storing the goggle in its protective bag. The best way of storing your google is in the Sweet Protection goggle case which is sold separately. Please visit your local authorized Sweet Protection dealer or visit: www.sweetprotection.com to purchase this item.
Lens cleaning kit
Sweet Protection lens cleaning kit are specifically formulated and approved to use on Sweet Protection outer lenses for goggles and sunglasses. Otherwise, use only mild soap and water to clean your product. Dry after rinsing by gently blotting with the microfiber goggle bag provided.
Mirror coating – lenses including Reflect
Most of the Sweet Protection outer lenses has a multi-layer laser vacuum coating creating a mirror effect on the lenses. As Sweet Protection lenses are precision optics, all of our mirror coatings are first surface coatings to reduce unwanted ghost reflections. This coating is engineered to help reduce glare and increase contrast and needs to be treated with special care to avoid scratching. Only use Sweet Protection’s lens cleaning kit and provided goggle bag/cleaning cloth on Sweet Protection outer lenses.
