    Does anyone know of a paste that is used to take out small scratches on lens'? If I remember correctly, there was a product that with a small amount of this paste, you could polish lens' to their origional clearity. Thanks in advance...Odie

    I guess you could try the headlight lens kits. They come with everything needed to make them clear again. They are available at Wal Mart or Auto Zone etc.

    They do make an eyeglass scratch remover kit but i know nothing about it.

    My recommendation would be to contact an optical shop and ask if they could polish/buff out a scratch... contact the folks at Morgan Optical if you don't have a resource...

    I researched that fix and it isn't available. I also bought some of the magic crap you smear on and let dry, guaranteed, that crap don't work either!! AND, they wouldn't refund my money after I sent it back according to their money back guarantee!

    Time for new lens guy!

    Again, contact an optical shop for an answer and let them tell you after they've had a chance to see the lens...
