I used Armour Etch cream on my everyday eyeglasses to remove scratches and the cream left a horrible smudgy film on my lenses. I cannot see through them now. How do I remove this smudgy film?
I'm afraid your glasses may not be fixable but you can try wiping them with white vinegar and I have heard some people tried using acetone (nail polish remover) and washing with mild dish washing soap but I know nothing about that and would advise using this as a last resort.
Amour Etch has been highly recommended for removing protective film but not necessarily scratches from eye glasses but should NOT be used on GLASS eyeglasses and that may be your problem.
Here is a link that explains how to use properly.

Always remember that we can only make suggestions and have no way to tell you if these can work - or do harm - as eyeglasses are all different and can have different coatings and some suggestions may not work for your glasses.
Please be sure to use your own judgement as to whether to try any of these suggestions.
I tried the Armour Etch on my glasses. I now have a film on them. Is there any way to get that off?

It does sound like the "film" is where the AE was, that is now etched. If that is the case, there is no removing it.
