How to Remove Scratches from Plastic Lenses?

Answer

There are three easy ways to remove scratches from plastic eyeglass lenses. You can apply white grease pencil to the lenses, filling in the scratches and then buffing the lenses with a clean chamois. You can apply a glass etching product with a clean, soft cloth the the lenses, allow it to dry as per instructions and then wash it off. (Note-this may remove anti-glare and non-scratch coatings.) The third way is to apply an oil based wood dusting or cleaning product to your lenses. Rub a small amount on each lens, let dry and then wash off.
