Scratched lens

Unfortunately is the only solution for this problem to replace the scratched lenses, because there is no treatment which can make scratches disappear.I only can give you some infos for the treatment of your next expensive glasses.: 1. if not used always put them into their case 2. when putting them somewhere else never put them with the glass on a surface (table) 3. if they are very dirty you may clean them with warm water and a mild soap and dry them with a very soft cloth. 4. never clean them with ready made wet wipes even not if they are for glasses, after a while this will start damaging the coating 5. for daily quick cleaning only use a soft little micro fiber cloth, you can get at any optician, often even for free. Then you will never have scratched lenses again.

Get scratches out of plastic shooting goggle lenses

After a lot of use plastic goggles tend to start to show signs of ware and tear by getting scratched up, making shooting practice very difficult if you can't see through them. The good news is that there are a few things that you can try to make minor scratches less noticeable.

The first thing to be aware of before trying any of the methods in this tip is to make sure that your lenses do not have a non-reflective coating. If they do then trying anything listed here will damage the lenses.

Using a wood cleaner in the spray bottle you just spray a little on to the plastic lenses, wipe them off and apply a spray petroleum jelly and wipe it off. The jelly works to fill in the scratches so they are less noticeable.

The cleaning sprays for DVDs and other disks can be used for buffing out scratches in plastic lenses. All you have to do is spray the lenses and then wipe it off.

There are a few household items that you can use to buff out scratches if you don't want to go out and buy a lens cleaner. You can rub a non-abrasive toothpaste on the lens with a cotton ball in small circular motions. Once you have covered all the scratches use cold water to rinse the paste off. If the scratches are deep then you will have to repeat this a few more times.

Mixing baking soda with water to make a paste you can rub it on the lens just like the toothpaste and when you think that the scratch is gone rinse off the paste. If its still there reapply the paste and try again.

    Put on a pair of plastic gloves and smear a thick layer of Armour Etch etching compound on your sunglass lenses---the tops and the bottoms of the lenses. Leave the Armour Etch on the sunglasses for five minutes and then rinse it off under the faucet with cold water. You can find Armour Etch at any craft store. It is designed to be a fast acting etching compound and works great for getting rid of scratches.

  • 1

    Use toothpaste. Apply a small amount of toothpaste on the lenses. Use a soft, cotton cloth to rub the toothpaste into the lenses. Use a small circular motion. The toothpaste will act as a filler and fill in the gap created by the scratch. Continue applying a circular motion for 10 seconds and rinse with lukewarm water. If the scratch is deep or stubborn, you might have to repeat the process.

  • 2

    Use baking soda to remove scratches on your sunglasses. Mix 1 part water to 2 parts baking soda to create a creamy paste. Use the cotton cloth to distribute the paste onto the scratched lens. Use a circular motion to rub the baking soda paste into the lens. Rinse with lukewarm water. More stubborn scratches warrant a second application.

    Use windshield fluid. The windshield fluid will polish off the scratches. Apply a small amount of windshield fluid onto a cotton cloth. Polish the sunglasses with the cotton cloth for several seconds. This method is especially effective against smaller scratches but may not remove prominent blemishes.

    Use vehicle wax. The lipids in the wax will fill in the scratches. Apply a small amount of vehicle wax onto the cotton cloth. Apply the cotton cloth into the offensive scratch.

    Should I purchase a sunglasses with a glass lens?

    Well, here are some facts about glass lenses that might help you reach a better decision.Glass is the only lens material that can be made into 100% optically correct sunglasses. For true vision, there is no comparison between glass and other lens materials.
    Glass does not flex or compress. Whenever lenses are placed into an eyewear frame, they are held in place by pressure of some kind. Plastic lenses flex and that creates distortion; but that cannot happen with glass lenses.
    Glass does not expand or contract in heat and cold in a significant way. No matter what the temperature outside, 100% optically correct sunglasses will remain 100% optically correct.
    Glass is the hardest material, and the most scratch-resistant. Glass is the most durable, and longest-lasting sunglass lens material. However, it is not scratch proof. Sand can scratch glass, but it requires serious effort or trauma to scratch glass lenses.
    Technology has made it possible to create a very lightweight glass lens. Today, it can be difficult to tell the difference between glass and plastic, even when holding a pair with glass lenses in one hand and a pair with plastic in the other hand. (Of course, the difference is clear when looking through the lenses. But the weight of the lens is no longer a dead giveaway as to which is which.)

    The danger of shattering was once one of the major disadvantages of glass lenses. However, all glass lenses pass the "Drop Ball Test" for impact resistance - the same test that is administered to polycarbonate and CR-39 lenses. When today's polarized lenses tend to break in a similar pattern as a car windshield. The broken pieces of glass mostly stick to the polarizing film that is inside the lens.
    These Spotters had been stepped on by the customer. Notice that the broken lens has retained its original curvature. The broken lens pieces were still so tightly held by the frame that we had to smash the broken lens out of the frame with a hammer (it took more than a few smacks, too!). This isn't to say in any way that glass lenses are equivalent to safety glasses. However, polarized glass lenses are much, much less likely to cause injuries today than they ever have been in the past.

    What is so unique about Polycarbonate Lenses?

    Polycarbonate lenses are the most-used alternative material for modern ophthalmic lenses. Consumer interest in thinner, more attractive spectacle lenses led to the development of special lens materials that would bend light differently than conventional plastic lenses. These materials are called "hi-index".
    Among the high index materials developed for eyeglasses is one material that has a number of very unique properties and that also provides special benefits to eyeglass wearers. It carries the generic name "polycarbonate" but is sometimes called something different by other manufacturer trade names.
    Great for sports protective eyewear
    A "must" for kids
    Comes with FREE Scratch and UV Protection
    Impact Resistant - Polycarbonate Surpass AR lenses are 10 times more impact resistant than plastic lenses.
    Lighter - Polycarbonate Surpass AR lenses are up to 35% lighter and thinner than standard plastic lenses for greater comfort.
    UV Protection - Polycarbonate Surpass AR lenses shield your eyes from virtually 100% of the sun's harmful UV rays.
    Scratch Resistant - PolyCarbonate Surpass AR lenses are hardcoated for excellent durability and scratch resistance.
    Easy Care - PENTAX EasyClean™ treatment resists dust and smudges, making your Polycarbonate Surpass AR lenses easy to clean.
    Polycarbonate was the first plastic high index lens and still has one of the highest index ratings (1.59). High index advantages are included with every polycarbonate lens so there is never any extra charge for high index when polycarbonate lenses are ordered. Originally used primarily for industrial safety glasses, now used for children, sports wearers, or anyone requesting greater impact resistance in their lenses.

    dont know about replacement but someone I know had a bottle of CD scratch remover and tried it one day, it worked wonders. They also confirmed that McGuiers plastic polish does an amazing job. Take your time, apply multiple times, and use a lint free sunglass wipe to apply and buff with.
