I stumbled upon this tweet message by LensCases looking for bloggers to review their products and as usual whenever I see Tweets like this, I always replied to ask whether they are OK with international bloggers, and my oh my, they are happy to provide me a product of my choice from their website for my review!

Why I Requested It?
Ever since I gave birth to Alyson, I've been getting really annoyed at having to tighten the screws on my glasses E.V.E.R.Y freaking D.A.Y! No, it's not that she's been grabbing or playing with my glasses (not yet!), it's more like my glasses expand when I got pregnant (like my body, hips and feet size) and shrinks back after giving birth. So like I said, I'm getting really annoyed at having to tighten back the screws as I have to kidnap borrow my hubby's screwdrivers set (which he uses for his IT business) and then getting scolded for kidnapping taking his things without asking.
And if I don't tighten the screws fast, my lens will drop out (happened a few times!) and thank God each time I managed to find the darn screws back!
Another problem which I think most glasses wearer face is the dirt and smudges on the lens. No matter how careful we are, there aren't any way we can keep it clean and clear at all time (unless you don't wear it at all and leave it in the case hahahah...)
Packaging & Product Features
The glasses cleaning and repair kit comes with a 20ml lens spray, microfibre cleaning cloth and an optical screwdriver with keyring.
When I first received the item, I was pleasantly surprised as it is very small! It is so tiny I almost felt like I'm James Bond or something with one of those mini gadgets thingy hehehe... I also like the genius design of the flat blade head, phillips/cross head and a hex nut socket all in one handy tool!
Some other info about the product:
- The cleaning spray is anti-fog, anti-static and is suitable for glasses and sunglasses.
- The optical screwdriver has a handy keyring attached and comes with a flat blade head, phillips/cross head and a hex nut socket. They all fit together on a keyring, which measures approx 6 cm long, or 11 cm long including keyring.
- The high density microfibre cloth measures 14.5 cm x 14.5 cm and is and is safe for all types of lenses, including plastic, mineral and AR coated. Can be used dry or with the cleaning spray included in the kit.
Testing & Feedback
I immediately got down to tightening those darn screws on my glasses and happy to report, the screws only start getting loose again after 6 days. I totally love the optical screwdriver!
And you know what? I still have to check my glasses EVERYDAY as I just can't believe those darn screws are still screwed on tightly! Simply awesome!
Storage & Appearance
With 2 kids on tow and tons of things to lug along whenever we are out (and I'm already bringing way less things compared to formula feeding parents!), I am happy I can bring along the optical screwdriver at least! I just hook on the keyring to my small purse zip and store the optical screwdriver inside the purse.
Now my purse is already small enough (no bigger than the size of a credit card), to know that I've got this nifty little repair kit around me at all times is so assuring!
In summary, totally love this cool little cleaning and repair kit!
I'm so happy to own it!
