Brad Harris: I had this happen with my current pair. I tried like hell to polish them with a microfiber cloth, and various products like metal polish, and headlight restore, but that didn't work. I finally got a polishing b it for my dremel, and used it with some of the metal polish. It took that coating right off. I then polished the lenses with the headlight restore, and now they are pretty good. there are a few spots around the edges I missed, but I can at least see out of them now.

JoAnn Becnel: I have nothing but trouble with the coatings. I'm also having problems finding lenses without the coatings.


amosnews: A product carried in many stores called Armor Etch will take the coating off, leaving the lens clear and clean. Amazon users give it an average 4.5 star rating. Google it to find where to buy it. It comes in a small bottle and is super cheap.

Cecil Fergie: BS you have to pay extra for the coating its like 35.00 do not get it. It does not come with the glasses.

elizabeth west: I've been getting the thinner poloycarbonate lenses since they first started making them. Every time I replace my glasses by 6 months in the coating is peeling just like yours. They are guaranteed for a year and I get the lenses replaced each year for free. Unfortunately I need to keep my glasses for two years so I spend a year with the lenses all peeled. I'm going next month to get a new pair and I'm requesting it without the scratch proofing. It can't possibly be any worse without it.

KoolBreeze420: I had a choice if I wanted the coating or not so that doesn't make sense that you can't get lenses without it............

Blackdog4818: Sears is AWFUL...worst glasses ever. Their coating peels off in less than a year.

ChameleonMD123: Coffee drinkers beware. Heat destroys coatings and if you sip hot coffee the steam will ruin them.

Melissa Baker: Did you see the u tube clip not far from yours,  I shows how to remove this protective coating to fix it for only 3 dollars.

Sandra Babcock: its not free. I had to pay for it.  My last glasses did not have it. 

piewolfe: I made my cheap $800 glasses better than new.  To remove the factory coating on my cheap $800 plastic lenses, I used Armour Etch, etching cream.  I dabbed a small spot on each lens and coated the complete area.  Let it soak for fifteen minutes then rub in tight circles until the solution dries and lifts off the coating. It might take more than one application to completely remove it. Once the coating is gone, any scratches can be polished out with Novus 2, fine polishing cream.  This is a product is for Lexan motorcycle wind shields. After finger polishing for an hour on each lens, they were completely clear.  No scratches at all.   

Bernie Carney: My glasses went like this after cpl o yrs . Paid £250 for new pair perscription hadnt changed ..decided to try the suntan lotion trick. just my luck it works. rub the lenses with suncream and soft cloth and it removes all coating crystal clear finish

wdwrxco: I don't believe that's a SRC, I think it's a cheap crappy lens (probably polycarb) with a cheap crappy A/R coating. In any event, no lens is gonna last you 5 years, besides that, your Rx is probably outdated. Quit being such a cheapskate and just buy some new lenses. And don't buy them from the cheapest place you can find, either, or you'll probably go through this again

jay capp: Thanks! Good information.

HackingDutchman: This is only a problem on cheap glasses.......

Kathy Kirk: Lots of people have told me that scratch Resist lenses were not good

Annie Lenihan: This has happened to me three times. It always happens at six months. It's not just Sears. It's the labs they are using. Someone told me that there are only a couple of labs that actually do lenses. Anyone know if this is true. My glasses are guaranteed for a year so I had them replaced after the first time at six months and then when it happened again, six months later, they wouldn't cover them. Total rip off.

AurumDream: That is not scratch of the lenses, it is the crakes and chips of the plastic material of the coating. It is the coating onto the lenses, expensive or cheap. All optical shop refuses to NOT to coat it, so that the problem of coating will force us to buy new pair, regardless our prescription is changed or not. It is a business trick!!!!

subpar man: is there a name for non locking knives with detent balls? I've heard them being called slip-joints but I thought it had to have a back spring to be called that.
RamesGamesLC: The whole... Killing each other, losing materials and everything else is getting a little old :/ You guys already don't have the income of ore to keep production up, and now you're destroying everything in your guys' inventories over and over. Further setting yourselves back, and destroying inventories more worth of materials... Meaning more episodes where nothing gets done... Le sigh.
