You’re out, enjoying your day at the speed of life when suddenly, it happens—a HUGE scratch appears on your glasses.
Can it be fixed? You grab your phone and scour the internet for a DIY fix: “How to get scratches out of glasses” or “How to remove scratches from glasses.” What pops up?
Webpages around DIY solutions like using toothpaste, baking soda, and isopropyl alcohol. It looks like some real MacGyver-type solutions with products you already have around the house. Phew! Easy.
You will likely completely alter your prescription, destroy the lens coating, damage the frame, or end up with some nightmare combo of all three.
Spoiler alert: there’s no secret hack to erase scratches magically, But it’s not all bad news. We can help. How?
Firstly, we need to separate fact from fiction~you can’t just rub the scratch out. Why not? Whether you’re talking about a build-up of super-fine scratches or a single thick, jagged line, it’s about what the rubbing/friction action is doing as you try to repair the damage.
Ultimately, you run the risk of either (A) flattening the curve of your lens, thus wholly altering your prescription. Or (B) buffing away the lens coating or lens treatment (like the Anti-Reflective coating), thus making a series of fine scratches transform into an unsightly smudge of damage (then you’ll really get annoyed).
So, what does work? It’s about simple and practical everyday care for your prescription glasses.
You know the drill, but let’s recap what to do and what to avoid doing:
