My insurance will not pay for scratch resistant eye glasses. Is there anything I can apply to help prevent them from being scratched?

You may find the following link of use in answer to your question -
I never get the scratch resistant coating as I think all those coatings are a rip-off. I do fine without it and I have no vision insurance. Just be careful with your glasses. Wipe them with a soft rag and put them down carefully when you take them off.
I never let my lens touch anything when I take them off. They never get scratched, turn the lens up when you lay them down, good luck.
I always pay extra for scratch resistant lenses, but they get scratched anyhow even with good care. Sometimes I wonder how one can tell if we are getting 'ripped off' when we pay for this. Is there a way to tell? I don't know how to tell if I have all the extra sun protection I pay for either.
