Thanks for all the tips but they aren't that bad so I guess I'll live with
it for now..The glasses are about 5 years old and I don't have the script as
they were made right at the eye doctors..They are invisaline bifocals..I got
them right after I had cataract surjury on my right eye...The left one needs
it now so I need to go back anyway...Probably do it in the spring...Again
I suppose you could stop scratching them, and start cleaning them correctly.
I'll never understand why people will usually take good care of camera
lenses, but they'll abuse their eyeglasses, which often cost more than a
Right way to clean eyeglasses: Plenty of warm water, and a cotton ball with

hits them just right, you can see they're just as bad as ever.
I have prescription bifocal sunglasses which I wear every day for
driving. Over the past four years the surfaces have become quite
scratched to the point of creating "clouds" in front of my eye.
Faced with the same situation as you, I purchased a bottle of
Meguire's plastic scratch repairing liquid ($5 at WalMart) and with a
little elbow grease and some time I did two applications and they are
now a LOT better. Not perfect mind you, but a heck of a lot better.
When I have time I will apply several more applications to get them
I've also read that the headlight lens restorer kit works well too.
