How do you remove scratches from eyeglasses?

My children got my glasses and scratched the lenses.

You should be able to buy some scratch remover from where the glasses where bought. It's usually in a small spray bottle.

You can get a special eyeglass spray from your eye doctor that is supposed to remove scratches. I have also noticed in eye care sections in stores a special wipe.

The only way to remove scratches from the lens is to regrind them which will change the prescription. I would recommend getting a new pair because of this.

I'm sorry to say that once lenses have been sractch there's nothing to do except replace the lenses. The lab can not "buff" out the because that would actually change the perscrition. It's a good idea to purchase the scratch protection, even though anything can scratch at least with the warrenty they will cover it for you.

To remove the scratches get toothpaste and a soft cloth. Take the toothpaste and distribute it onto the cloth then apply it to the lenses. This will help.

To remove scratches from eyeglass lenses just take toothpaste and put a little onto a cloth. Rub it for ten seconds, remove the toothpaste and repeat until it's gone.

Scratches on eyeglasses are often not removable. This is especially true if you have plastic lenses. For glass lenses, very light scratches can sometimes be removed with buffing, but this is unusual. Usually, if the scratches obscure your vision, you will need to get new lenses.
