    Got sprayed with coolant and it removed it, so it's not in the lens but more like a coat on the glass

    NO,a transition lens has a chemical IN THE MATERIAL ,it is not possible to remove it! if you recently got your glasses,take them back to where you ordered them and let them know you are unhappy with them.chances are they will replace them at no charge if it's been less than 30 days!

    No. The glasses have the color changing capability in the material of the lens, so it can't be removed just like any kind of the coatings. If you don't want the transition glasses, you can get a new pair of glasses without transitions.

    I think there is no way to remove it as it is the material inside the lens.It is not like the outside coating which can be stripped off easily.

    As I know that transitions are coating added when the lenses are manufactured (just like part of the lens material), it cannot be stripped off like nail polish. If you really want to remove the transitions on your lenses, you'd better change the lenses in your glasses into non-transitional ones.

    If you hate the transition lenses, the best way is to remove the transition lenses and fill your eyeglasses frame with new prescription lenses in an eyeglasses store. You shall know that transition lenses are embedding with microcrystalline sliver halides or molecules that can react to UV rays in the sun so as to achieve goal. So, if you don't like it, you have to remove your transition lenses. And I suggest you have an optician change the lenses for you.
