    There are several solutions to this problem. First, you can go to buy some certain liquid which can repair the scratched eyeglass lens. You should drop the liquid onto the surface of the scratched lens and clean them after it's dry. Secondly, I think you can go to the glasses stores to find the specific technician to help you to repair the scratched eyeglass lens. I hope this will be helpful.

    If they are plastic lenses, you can use some household products to help remove small scratches on your lenses. But if they are deep scratches, I suggest you to buy a pair of new glasses. You can spray wood cleaner on the lenses and then buff the scratched lenses. Then you may need to wipe them off and then spray a liquid petroleum jelly on the lenses and wipe them off as well. The petroleum can help fill the scratches and make them less noticeable. You can repeat this procedure until you can't see any scratches. Hope this helped!

    I heard that brass or silver polish can help remove scratches from plastic lenses. You can have a try. You just need to rub them with a soft rag. And wipe the excess off with a clean soft rag. Repeat this until you can't see scratches. This also works for mild scratches on plastic lenses. Good luck!

    If you have non-abrasive toothpaste, cotton ball at hand, you can dab a few non-abrasive toothpaste on your scratched plastic lenses, and then you can rub them with a cotton ball in a circular motion for a few minutes. You can wash them with cool water and repeat this if there are still some scratches on the lenses. You can repeat this for a few times until you get a satisfying effect. Hope this helped!

    I heard that cleaning spray that comes with CD/DVD repair kits can be used to remove mild scratches from plastic lenses. Or you can DIY a paste from baking soda and water. Just mix baking soda with a small amount of water. After you get a thick paste, you can rub them with your lenses. This can help to remove small scratches too.

    You can try this. Rub the vehicle wax on your scratched lenses. Move them in a circulation for several minutes and then wipe any excess wax with a cotton ball or a piece of soft cloth.

    Dude, if your eyeglasses are very expensive, I suggest you to take them with you to see an optician. If they are just mild scratches, the optician may remove them for you for free. You can have a try. If they are deep scratches, you'd better buy a pair of new glasses because deep scratches will blur your vision and cause eye fatigue. They may also cause some inconveniences when you are working.
