    Here are some solutions you can use to remove the scratches: 1.Armour-Etch: This is a professional solution that can be used to deal with coated lenses. It is only necessary to spray this solution to the scratched side of the lens which has an anti-glare coating. This remover is helpful since only the coating layer is scratched, rather than the lens itself. 2.Non-abrasive toothpaste: Some eye care practitioners recommend plain non-abrasive toothpaste for eyeglass scratch repair. 3.Jeweler's rouge: Eyewear users can also get a small dab of jeweler's rouge from a jewelry store to repair scratched lenses. 4.Ammonia: It is also feasible to spray a small amount of ammonia as scratch solution. Clean your glasses first with warm water and spray any of the solution above on the lenses.Then rub,rinse and dry. You should know the process.
