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
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!
Matt McNeil: Great vid, this worked perfectly on my Superfocus glasses.
I was going to go get some of the product you mentioned, but I tried Windex
and it worked like a charm.
I can see again!
AurumDream: I am so glad to run into this useful information; I am so glad to know that
I am not alone.
I have worn eyeglasses for 50 years, I know how to take care my
eyeglasses - never use any Coating and never got scratch "on the
Now, I wear "Varilux Comfort Progressives High Index
1.67" (about $615.00). Even force to buy my 2nd replaced lenses, the lens
manufactory still INSISTS on putting all kinds of coatings - Scratch
Resistant Coating, Anti-Glare Coating, Ultraviolet Treatment which left me
with no choice, much less of its grade. Even with more cares, however, the
coating chips again 1 year later.
How about other types of coatings? Does anyone has the same, chippings
/ crakes, problems with coating other than AR COATING? Maybe I should
refuse all of the coatings on my expensive lenses.
It is not cheapness issue, not caring issue; It is the coating issue.
It is the business trick how eyeglass industry makes us to buy
new eyeglasses every 1 or 2 years, regardless our prescription is changed
Melisa Funer: I'm going to try this with my glasses today. I am so sick of the scratches!
I hope it works.
TheWcr84: I'm not sure. But I think windex would work as well. Maby even stronger
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.
Callista Lee: Thank you soooooooo much! I was just about to head out the door to take my
glasses in to the optometrist's to have the coating removed. I stopped by a
few weeks ago and they told me I'd have to get new lenses so I was prepared
to go in to fight with them today to just remove the darn coating. I've had
trouble with it on glasses before but on this pair its has just been nuts.
Now I'm thinking that the reason they are no longer selling glasses cleaner
at that shop is that they realised that it was what was causing the
problem! Grrrrr. I'll do it myself. Thank you again.
Aurélien Carnoy: Thank you,
you are an inspiration for all of us.
what we are witnessing is "Planned obsolescence"
smoothkaos2: Thanks Peter. I'm going out today after work to buy some of the cleaner.
Fingers are crossed!
Eric Musick: Will this work on glass lenses?
patti wathen: never get hairspray on your anti-reflective lenses. it ruins them!
Randy Brown: Went to walmart, got this product, worked all afternoon trying to remove
the coating. Scratches just kept getting worse. I'm going to try buffing
with a dremel I guess. Disapointed, I hoped this would solve my problem.
Liz Bauer: What if you don't have a scraper like that?
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.
GraemeCree: The stuff is actually called Wipe 'N Clear. If you go looking for Wipe 'n
Clean, you'll be looking a long time.
Yesquiet: Thanks for making this video ....... after removing the scratches a year
ago ...... are they getting scratched again .. ? .... or have you been so
careful that they have remained pretty clear .. ? ....... Been tempted to
have them re-coated for the anti-glare properties .. ? .... my glasses now
have some light glaring ...... but I'll endure that if necessary .... I am
wearing them again
AurumDream: Oh, this reminds me that the chippings started spreading like web after I
had my eyeglasses PROFESSIONAL cleaned in the optical shop, probably with
the same chemical ingredients or the coating just could not withstand the
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.
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
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
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
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
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.
