  • I inherited an old pair of Bausch and Lomb Ray-Ban Wayfarer sunglasses that are in good shape except for some light surface scratches on the front of the lenses. The scratches affect visibility, but not significantly. It also does not look like that the glasses have any multi-coating. They appear to be glass lenses, and I would really like to figure out a way to affordably and safely remove the scratches.. Is there a best bet for removing scratches from glass lenses?

    I have read that Cerium Oxide works, but many warn that you shouldn't use it on sunglasses as you may unintentionally remove a layer of multi-coating or UV protection. I am fairly confident these older B&L sunglasses aren't, but is there anything else I should know before moving forward?

Hi - did you find out a solution for repairing the lens ? I have been given a pair of B&L Wayfarer 2 vintage sunglasses and they have a light scratch across one lens.... am looking for a solution! Thanks in advance,

It may seem counterintuitive, but if you fill just the scratch with black paint it will keep the scratch from reflecting incoming light. It is recommended for scratched camera lenses also.

A marker like a sharpie might work. Acetone will remove the excess on the surface.

The best way of getting the scratches remove from the sunglasses would be using a lens cleaner which you can easily avail it from Contact Lens Heaven that not only have lens cleaner but would provide information for using it properly.
