Take them back to where you purchased them. If they are not too deep, they can buff them out.

I am looking looking for info regarding how to remove scratches from eyeglass lenses. I read about it, but do not remember the name of the product. I think it came from Michael's craft store. Any info or help would be greatly appreciated.

Try white tooth paste, just a tiny bit rubbed in a circle. The optical places should sell a spray that will cover mild scratches.

I believe you're looking for, Armour Etch, at Michaels Crafts. I got super glue on my prescription plastic lenses and I"m going to try it. Suggested by an Optometrist. Apply it with a qtip etc.. leave it on for 5 mins, rinse off; Repeat 2 -3 times sounds safe. It is abrasive so coat the surface smoothly and lightly, don't rub. I've read that using fingernail polish remover will clear all but deep scratches. Obviously, any protective surface prep will be lost, glare/scratch coatings etc.. Just don't use anything abrasive and take them to a pro if you're going to attempt buffing. Good luck!!! Jim

I have only had my progressive glasses for 3 months, but they already have some scratches on the lens. I believe that I scratched them by using a t-shirt to wipe them clean. : ( I do have the non glare coating. I have noticed a big difference with the non glare coating, I really like it. If I use the ideas posted here, will that take all the coating off?
As to the warranty, Binyons offers only 30 days.

any ideas?

I borrowed my boyfriend's sunglasses, but the tint is coming off. They are the type that look like cop glasses. Is there anything I can do at home to fix the tint?

I really need to know. He is getting them back tomorrow and he can't know about the damage.

After it starts peeling, you cant stop it. As the sunglasses age and are exposed to the elements this happens.

It is possible that white toothpaste (not gel) if rubbed in circles on the lenses may help.

I just read here that Armor Etch will remove scratches on eye wear. I have just a plain pair of glasses (no anti-glare coating). But they do have transition lenses.
