    1. Wash your polarized sunglasses under warm, running water, applying a dot of dish detergent to each lens and gently rub it around. 2. Apply a coating of scratch remover polish. If that's not available, use petroleum jelly, furniture polish, or non-abrasive white toothpaste. 3. Rub the coating in a circular motion around the lenses with a microfiber cloth for five to 10 seconds and then inspect the lenses to see if the scratches are still visible. If so, repeat the process. 4. Wash the glasses in warm, soapy water again to remove the oily residue from the lenses and thoroughly dry them with a microfiber cloth.

    NEVER use Armour Etch with polarized sunglasses. It will ruin them.

    You can use Armour Etch to fix scratched polarized sunglasses. However, armour etch is toxic, so you should wear gloves and use them in a well ventilated area. When you have put rubber gloves on, appy the armour etch to both sides of the lenses to remove the anti-reflective coating because the anti-reflective coating is on both sides. Then rinse them under warm water and Dry with micro fiber cloth. Next, you can spray some Lemon Pledge Furniture Polish on both sides of the lenses, and rub it with your fingers. Finally, wipe them off with a cotton cloth and then the scratches will be less noticeable.

    Usually, most of way of fixing scratched polarized sunglasses (or any other sunglasses or eyeglasses lenses) are adopt the way that get ride of their lenses coating. That because of scratches are most happen to the lenses coating. Though it make your sunglasses lenses get rid of scratches, the sunglasses no longer the original one to protect the eyes. So, i think you'd better buy a pair of new one. Now, there are cheap and good quality polarized sunglasses online, Just search it out.

    Well, you can remove the scratch by getting rid of the coating because usually that's where the scratches are mostly found. However, after the coating is gone, the sunglasses lose its point. So, my recommendation would be buy another pair of sunglasses. After all, a pair of polarized sunglasses without any coating is no use at all. There are so many places you can find inexpensive polarized sunglasses. You can do a search online and you'll find a perfect pair in no time. Trust me, do a search online NOW.

    The good news is that there are tips and tricks you can use to minimize the look of scratch, fill it in, or polish it over, so that you’ll be back to sporting those cool frames in no time. Here is a handy method to try to get your sunglasses back to tip-top shape. Dab a bit of brass or silver polish on the lenses with a cotton ball and gently rub it around. If there is any excess polish, remove it with a clean, lint-free cloth. Repeat the process until the scratch has disappeared.
