I found out about Armour Etch, printed out a 50% off coupon, and went to Michaels craft store for a 3oz bottle - $6.50 total. After removing the lenses from the frame, I put a nice thick layer on both sides of each lens, just gently dab with a Q-tip. The goo is abrasive so don't rub and scratch your lenses.
It took 2 times at 5 minutes each. I don't see why you couldn't leave it on for an hour or more. After washing them off, they are like new, other than a couple deep scratches. This will not magically get rid of deep scratches. It only gets rid of the scratched/crazed coating on the surface.

Yes, it gets rid of the anti-glare coating. They will not be "anti-glare" any more. I have been wearing that same pair every day for 6 months or so, I have them on now, and they look just fine. DO NOT try this with real glass lenses, you will make frosted opaque glasses.
My glasses always get that mess on them after a few years.
I am really glad to know this!
Hi, good for you! I'm wondering if it got rid of the anti-glare coating that you had. And if that's why there are no more scratches?....because the coating that was scratched is gone? Either way this is great news!
thanks for sharing :)
