How to remove scratches from sunglasses lensesThe Silver Polish approach

The Toothpaste secret
Rub toothpaste (non-minty, non-whitening, non-abrasive, non-gel) into the scratch with a cotton ball using circular movements. Do this for about 10 seconds, then get rid of the excess with cool water. Repeat if necessary.
The Furniture Spray method
Spray your lenses lightly and use a lint-free cloth to rub the spray around in a circular motion. The spay will fill the scratches. The only trouble with this method is that the fill will only last a few days.
