Greg Quillen: Yeah mine has bubbles or something in it. Never knew how to get rid of. Was just about to try to find glass polishers. Thanks for the help. Got to try this

James Prest: Dude... you saved me about $150 - $200. THANKS SO MUCH!!! I mean like... YOU SO TOTALLY ROCK MAN!!! I can see now... it worked!

Aurélien Carnoy: Thank you, you are an inspiration for all of us. what we are witnessing is "Planned obsolescence"

missinugianna: Looked up the price everyone...$2.88 a bottle. http://www.walmart.com/ip/Flents-Wipe-n-Clear-Eyeglass-Lens-Cleaner-8-Oz/10315890#Product+Reviews.......Thanks for posting this!! Hopefully I can fix my glasses that I bought for $360.00. This will kill me if I can't fix them.

keend0g: Peter, are those glass lenses in the video? I have an AR coating on a pair of glass lenses that is scratchy and hazy. same problem. I guess I don't have much to lose at this point, I either try this or get new lenses (these are only 2 years old). Hope to hear from you. 

smoothkaos2: Thanks Peter. I'm going out today after work to buy some of the cleaner. Fingers are crossed! 

patti wathen: never get hairspray on your anti-reflective lenses. it ruins them!

GraemeCree: The stuff is actually called Wipe 'N Clear. If you go looking for Wipe 'n Clean, you'll be looking a long time.

Prateexit Sagar: hey can u tell how to remove the uv ray protection film from the glass?

Kitty Kurth: I bought two pairs of glasses the same week from two different places. The A/R coating on the pair from For Eyes is still perfect three years later, the A/R coating on the pair from Macy's Optical was totally scratched and impossible to see out of after less than a year. The glasses have been sitting on a shelf, but I am going to try to remove the A/R coating tomorrow.

CountyOrdinance: I also use zenni. No problems. I even teach a sunday school with young kids who grab my glasses and whatnot. I've smudged them, they fall off when I'm running, sand gets on 'em, etc etc. No problem. I have only 1 scratch, from the time I dropped them and stepped on them, crushing the glass into the tile on my kitchen floor. I love the oleophobic lenses, they're easy to clean. Just takes the edge of my shirt and one swipe. The best part is that my glasses were $35 w/shipping. Zenni is awesome.

faro0485: Well there's always pinhole glasses.

Peter Dudycz: I've taken good care of my glasses. The last pair I own cost around $400. It depends what company makes them. Some get cheap and use a crappy coating.

citiwide318: And no it's not a scam that your eye care professional is try to "up sell" you with A/R coatings. A/R coatings help improve over all clarity of the lenses and help reduce eye issues affiliated with cataracts and light sensitive vision. And premium grades are also baked onto the lenses to help fuse into the hydrophobic material of the lenses. So don't shoot down A/R period just yet. Standard grades have to be offered because of many insurance providers give you selective coverage amounts on them.

Nightbird: Thanks for the recommendation..and their website does look great. My last pair came from the greateyeglasses website, but Zenni's prices & styles are much better. I couldn't find the "oleophobic" lenses you mentioned. Are they their standard lens, or is there a box you can click to request them?

Peter Dudycz: I would not recommend nail polish remover. I tried that on an older pair of glasses, it discolored the plastic and made it white.

Higgfarm: The coating on my $400 Dolce and Gabanas started to come off. When I asked my optometrist he said, "Glasses coatings are only meant to last 2-3 years, so the fact they have lasted this long is remarkable. Unfortunately there isn't a way to fix those lenses, so if you are wanting to keep them, I would suggest being very careful when you clean them to keep the coating from coming off. The other option would be to replace them." I wish they'd told me this when I bought them!

Nightbird: Sweat doesn't really cause chipping from my experience. But everyday life events do. You might just be the ONE person on earth who never drops them, lays on a table incorrectly and they get scratched, or who knows what else. Or, you found the ONE company that uses an incredible AR coating. I take care of mine like Gold, use the right cleaner & microfiber cloth, & still they get scratches. Please let me know what online company you used, I would love a pair like yours. =)

NoTanFightFan: Thanks brother. This video greatly helped my dad with his glasses.

MissUmaDarlin: Thank you Peter..going through the same thing with my glasses. Really upsets me that the cleaner they gave me with the glasses is what did it. Gonna try this tonight.

Dallas Jensen: walmart's wipe n clean is now safe for use with anti glare

CountyOrdinance: Step 1 of ordering is your frame, step 2 is your lenses, if you press continue, on Step 3 you will have 3 options for AR coating: Standard anti-reflective, Super Hydrophobic, and Oleophobic. The oleophobic coating is around $15, but I can HIGHLY recommend it. On the same "Step" you can see clip on sunshades for 3 or 4 dollars. I don't recommend this at all. They typically don't stay on well, are cheap, and don't fully match the shape of your glasses. Hope this helps! :D

aliveandwell inruggedville: Well done, anti reflective coating is at least a terrible product.

Alexander Andreou: The best solution i found till now !!! couldent find this product in Cyprus but nail polish remover works wonders too! :) also if you dont have a plastic scraper you can use an old visa card ! Great tutorial !!!!

Voivod 1966: I've had a pair of online, $30 glasses, about as cheap as you can get, with AR coating for over two years, I sweat onto them constantly and there's not a single chip or scratch on these lenses. I don't know what people are doing to their glasses but it's apparent people just can't responsibly take care of them.

jonwilli0203: Thank you so much

TheGNUfan: You get the same product, the only difference is the lack of a warranty. But considering that you can buy several pairs for the same price and warranties don't cover everything, you might as well just purchase them online.

OptometryStudentscom: This happens when you buy a poor quality AR coating only. Get the good stuff and it wont.

Terri Smart: Fantastic. I am a runner and they did not tell me that sweat will eat away at the coating too. they won't let me get a new set of lenses without a new exam. Buttheads. thank yo so much for this video.

Toni Gandel: Bought this product and it doesn't work at all on my Verilux lenses. Tried soaking and wiping and prodding with plastic brush but it doesn't remove it at all. I wonder why you find it worked and isn't doing jack squat on my glasses?

Nightbird: Crizal doesn't actually manufacture the lenses from my understanding, only the coating. If the coating was sandwiched between two lenses, then it couldn't do it's job and the lenses would still be vulnerable. This would be like sandwiching Teflon non-stick between two metals -the Teflon has to be on the outside to do it's job. But your right that they are making money out of all of us with this incredibly inferior product. I'm sure a class action lawsuit will come from this.

William Mueller: on line glasses are not a saving item. you get exactly what you pay for....nothing. Most reputable companies sell an a/r that has a two, yes two, year warranty against any kind of scratching. But then, it's always nice to get a pair of cheap eyeglasses on line that are anything but warranted. You get what you pay for.

MotionPictureGems: Thanks for the tip.

Peter Dudycz: They are selling you these coatings without telling you all the facts. It wasn't until I pestered the doctor that I found out that sweat can eat away the coating. My friend who is a runner bought a new pair of glasses with the coating on them, they started chipping away after a month.

Voivod 1966: Zeni Optical. I paid $42 for single vision, AR and their photoreactive lens and the lenses look like the day I received them two years ago.

Nightbird: I purchased some very expensive memory frame glasses with Crizal lenses December 2012, over $600.00 USD, and they are complete GARBAGE. Everything they advertise they don't get they DO: smudges, scratches, oil & dirt, etc. The smudges are especially horrid. I have contacted Crizal about this, and yes, they will replace the lenses, but the inconvenience factor of doing this is the main issue, not to mention the lies & false advertising. I suspect a class action suit will follow against them.

muriel graan: This happens to expensive glasses too, it just an insurance policy that you will have to replace your glasses in a couple of years. This is a great video- Thank-you for posting it!

citiwide318: You get that issue with a standard grade A/R coatings. Opticians don't prefer for patients to go with that grade because you'll get that issue of surface scratching. Purchasing silicon based or higher grade A/R coatings helps eliminate the issues. Such as Crizal Avance and Sapphire, Hoya Super Hivision EX3, etc... Those coatings are put through various test against heat, scratching, and impact pressure test. So next time your in the market for eye wear ask your optician about the difference.

faro0485: Why don't they wedge the coating between 2 lenses if they're going to charge $600. Sounds like crizal lenses made money out of you.

Douglas Dartsch: Except for the fact that most lenses are made in the same plant in china... oops, those pesky facts...

Craig Thomasson: Visit the crizalusa website. if you would have purchased a quality AR lens coating like Crizal to begin with from your local optician these lenses would have been covered under a manufacturers warranty against defects and more than likely the Crizal product would still be in good condition on the lenses. You get what you pay for and unfortunately some retailers bundle lens packages together and use cheap products to make it seem the deal is valuable...

Nightbird: Pinhole glasses only help some people, not all. And they aren't suitable for driving..lol.

smoothkaos2: This does NOT only happen to cheap AR coatings. I paid for the extra so-called good stuff and for no apparent reason at all the inner part of my left lens (next to my eye), which is almost impossible to scratch, decided to have all of these hair line little scratches appear where the coating is coming off. They say it looks like I scratched them so warranty wouldn't cover it but I'm OCD about my glasses/sunglasses and would know if I was responsible. Anyway it pissed me of so I'm now scouring youtube for a solution. Hope this works.
