take them to lenscrafters, 20/20 or place like that. Talk to guy in the lab and maybe he can polish them. Not the clerks that fit you for glass es etc.

Also, might try "PLEXUS" which is a plastic cleaner and polish. This stuff was orignally eveloped for use in aviation. Can buy it at motorcycle stores, fixed base operations or on the internet.

I contacted Lenscrafters here and was told that they couldn't do anything for scratched lenses. Said the only way to fix them was to purchase new...Bummer...Dale

I would go down to lenscrafters etc. Wouldn't call as they might take the easy way out and say can' help you. If you are there, he might see what he can do and they might be better than before.

Anyone who is in the business of selling lenses will try to sell you new ones. Food for thought.

I have and use Plexus. Minor scratches DISAPPEAR.

Just as 'locdoc' said go down to you local Lencrafters, etc. and tell them what you want done and they may listen a it more carefully. Also, I will second the Plexus, I have used it for years and it does a nice job and does last for some time depending how hard you are on your lenses.
Hope this helps.
