Thank you all for your answers, much appreciated. I guess the only option now is to get a new pair of glasses. Once again for helping me decide what to do

mkettler, the anti-glare coating is placed over the lens and if you scratch it, then there is no way to buff it out. It must be replaced. That, of course, means replacing the entire lens. You may want to take a look at this product and see if it works. Safest would be to replace your lenses without the anti-glare coating......Hope this helps, good luck.

I have abandoned using coatings on my eyeglasses. Areas of the coatings eventually deteriorate after repeated cleanings and reduce visibility. This is not a scratch issue since I carefully wash my lenses before drying them with a microfiber cloth. With the lens coated, I had to replace the lenses about every year. Without the lens coatings and by continuing with careful cleaning, my glasses have lasted over four years and are virtually scratch free. I should mention that initially I was a little annoyed by reflections but soon adjusted to this change. I concur with the other reports that coatings cannot be repaired and that lenses must be replaced. So the bottom line is" Is the benefit of having a $20 coating worth more to you than having it wear out in a year and cause the need to replace your lenses?"

Wow! Two years have passed since I first posted my comments and six years since I abandoned using coatings. Still no scratches! If you take normal care of your lenses, you too can enjoy the benefits of clear vision by avoiding vulnerable coatings.

nobody tells you when you are buying the lenses that coating will ruin your glasses very fast. My high prescription lenses cost $1000. I think coating should be banned. Or sellers needed to inform that to cients.

I am an optometrist. I NEVER put anti reflection coats on my own lenses, and I usually advise my patients NOT to get ARC. It makes the lenses 8% more transparent, when it is clean and new, but because it sits on top of the anti scratch coat that ALL plastic lenses have, it makes them MORE scratchable.

A damaged AR coating cannot be repaired. However, the coating can be removed using a stripping agent. If the damage did not severely compromise the underlying hard coat or lens material then the AR coating can be reapplied.

If the underlying hard coat is damaged then this to can be reapplied and then the AR coat reapplied .

The hard coat is the base upon which the AR coat is deposited.

If the damage has affected the lens material itself then there is no other option than to replace the entire lens.

I am an optician who has been in practice for 18 years and who runs an optical lab manufacturing optical lenses with hard coatings and AR coatings.

I was told by the one optomeristist where I bought my glasses that the coating had worn off & they will repair them ten minutes later I was told by another optomertrist they will need to analyse them first because they look like scratches there fore I will have to pay for them l’m so annoyed because I got two differnt reasons as to what is wrong with them. If the coating had worn off is that a manfacturing error? Thank you

I also have a few pairs of glasses need fix. The stores told me coating can not be fixed, but lens can be replaced. May I ask if you can replace the coating for me and more much do you charge?

Well..... If I am right, the only way to fix this up is re-make or re-order lenses with coating.

In my glasses the coating manifested many fine cracks in the coating. These may appear as scratches but in careful observation one can see they are not scratches due to the way they intersect.
