Introduction

If you are like a lot of people, your eyeglasses and sunglasses are more than just a fashion accessory. These items can help correct your vision and prevent eye strain, so it's important to protect them from scratching. Here are 6 easy ways to remove scratches from your eyeglasses and sunglasses.

Wash, rinse, and dry your glasses first.

If you have lightly scratched glasses, it is best to clean them first with just a soft cloth and mild detergent to remove any dirt or grime before attempting to buff out the scratches. Rinse thoroughly with water before wiping dry with a clean, soft cloth.

If this does not work, try one of the following methods:

Mix up some baking soda with water to make a paste.

Baking soda is a mild abrasive and can be used to clean eyeglasses, windows, and other surfaces.

Try toothpaste.

If you have non-gel toothpaste, grab a pea-sized amount and rub this onto the scratches. Wash off with water and repeat if necessary. Wait for your glasses to dry before putting them on.

Toothpaste alternatives: Banana peel and petroleum jelly.

Banana peels can be used as an alternative to toothpaste for removing scratches from eyeglasses. The same method applies: rub the peel over the lenses and then wipe clean with a microfiber cloth.

Petroleum jelly is another good alternative to toothpaste, but it will leave a residue on your lenses that may need to be cleaned off with soap and water after you're done rubbing it onto your eyewear.

Try Brasso or other metal polish.

You can use Brasso or other metal polish. However, be careful to avoid getting any on your lenses, as it might scratch them.

Other abrasives include toothpaste and baking soda.

As a last resort, check with an eyeglass repair shop or an optometrist's office.

As a last resort, check with an eyeglass repair shop or an optometrist's office. If you're not able to find someone who can fix the scratches on your glasses, it's time to get new ones.

If you have an eye doctor already and they don't offer repairs, ask if they can recommend another place that does. Some optometrists may also have their in-house repair services and will be able to take care of your scratched lenses right away at no charge (or at least for a lower cost). The only downside is that most people are used to paying much more than this type of service costs—so if your glasses aren't insured by your health plan or Medicare/Medicaid, expect the bill to be high.

Even if you have to replace your scratched eyeglasses, this will be cheaper than buying new ones and can buy you time while you wait for your new pair to arrive!

There are a few things you can do to keep your eyeglasses scratch-free and protect them from damage as much as possible. Here are some easy steps for keeping your glasses in good shape:

  • Be careful when cleaning them. Although it's tempting to run your glasses under the faucet or wipe them down with soap and water, this can cause more damage than good! Since most lenses are made from plastic, any harsh chemicals will eat away at the surface of the lens and make scratches worse. Even if you use a soft cloth or paper towel to wipe down your lenses with warm water and mild soap (if needed), be sure not to rub too hard—too much pressure could lead to additional scratches on top of existing ones.
  • Don't wear them while doing other activities like cooking or cleaning around the house! By wearing glasses while performing these tasks, it puts unnecessary stress on both sides of the frame which might lead again back into becoming damaged over time if left unchecked consistently over many years."

Conclusion

As you can see, many of these ways are pretty simple, but they're also effective. You may think that a scratch can never be completely removed from your eyeglasses or sunglasses, but that's simply not true. All it takes is some elbow grease and a little bit of time and patience. Thankfully, the result will be worth it.

A Mama's Boy's Love for His Mother

Vicci™ Eyewear was inspired by a son’s love for his mother and his passion for fashion.

David Abramovici, the Founder of Vicci™ Eyewear, came from a family of artisans dedicated to craftsmanship since the 1920s.

David recalls that when his mother was around 65 years old, she would always ask him to stop by the local pharmacy to pick up some generic readers.

He would spend at least 20 minutes every time he went there, just standing in front of a rack full of tacky, ugly readers. It was difficult for him to choose a "nice" design that he thought would look good on his mother.

His mother enjoyed attending events and spending money on her dresses and accessories. Unfortunately, the readers are often underwhelming, and she was embarrassed to ever be seen wearing them. Like most women, she'd usually hide it in her lovely purse and would always look around before using them to read the menu or bill.

David wondered why there weren’t more choices for high-quality and fashionable custom readers for older women like his mother. Something she’d actually love to wear and be proud to be seen wearing.

And that’s when it hit him!
