Removing Overspray from Eyeglasses
From contributor A:
This says a lot about this finish. Spray it on glass and acetone won't touch it. I think I'll try it.
From contributor U:
This says a lot about your glasses! Thinner didn't melt into your plastic lenses? It didn't soften the surface and smear with the rag? Your local auto store should sell a headlight resurfacing kit, this basically removes the buildup and milky look that happens to cars with plastic headlight lenses. It will take care of your specs.
From the original questioner:
Thanks for all the responses. I ended up getting a new pair of glasses since my old ones are pretty screwed up. The first thing the optometrist said was "just make sure you don't get something like acetone on your polycarbonate glasses because that will totally destroy them". Unfortunately that was what the folks from Mohawk recommended. The lab that I bought my new glasses from recommends that I should get actual glass lenses for spraying since they are not affected by any spray. I just might do that and get a cheap pair that is reserved for the shop.
