      Hello Paul Edmondson,
      If you have too many scratches on your Ray Ban glasses   you can remove it via  Toothpaste & Baking Powder I know  this method is taking too much time but it will work perfectly

    If the scratches are in the mirror coating, you can't remove them. The mirror coating is the last coating on the outside of the lens and easily scratched. You can buy replacement lenses from Ray-Ban.

    Well you could run over them then replace the lenses.  That's what my hubby did when he turned a corner too fast and they slid across the dashboard and out the open window:(

    hehe, you can just buy a new one. (just kidding) - here's a tip i found from

    - Use baking soda to remove scratches on your sunglasses. Mix 1 part water to 2 parts baking soda to create a creamy paste. Use the cotton cloth to distribute the paste onto the scratched lens. Use a circular motion to rub the baking soda paste into the lens. Rinse with lukewarm water. More stubborn scratches warrant a second application.

    WD-40, use a soft cloth and a little dab on each lens.  See if that works smile

    hydrogen peroxide and baking soda mixed together and let it sit on the lense for about 5 minutes and then wipe off with cold damp rag(:

    you could try cleaning them with lemon pledge. The oil fills in the scratches and makes them clear. But its not a fix forever thing. But it does work

    Three is no way that you can remove scratches from the lenses. You can only get it replaced..

    Any abrasive, like the baking soda mixture will "sand" the glass itself, you just need to polish it further with a soft and mild abrasive after the initial application of the backing soda mixture and buff it with a cotton cloth for a while. Deeper scratches will not be fixable. Either that or buy a new pair or in the hopes of not offending any very sensitive souls donate the costs to a non profit.

    You know sometimes some people forget that we have to relax and just remember that it's just a question, nothing more.

    Hope you get them fixed Paul, good luck, they are really cool sunglasses.

    Spread glass etching material onto the front and back surfaces of the lenses. This glass etching compound Spray both sides of the lens with furniture polish and begin buffing the lens with the cloth.

    believe it or not: peanut-butter!! Has to be creamy though. rub it over the scratch with a cloth for about 30 seconds.. then let it sit for about 10 minutes then wash off and blowdry and voila!

    A combination of ash and moisture rubbed onto the surface will work for scratched lenses. I use a tiny bit of WD-40 and cigar ash for the perfect scratch fix formula.
    Good luck, I hope this helps!

    The most effective method is to use a good metal polish like "Brasso". It does take quite a long time to polish scratches out of glass, but it is well worth the effort. Whatever you do, don't use metal polish on plastic lenses. It will permanently ruin them. Good luck !

    Take just a bit of car wax on a soft cotton rag. It should do it.

    For scratched or damaged Ray Ban lenses, you can order a replacement set of lenses by contacting their warranty/service provider at 800-343-5594.  A set of polarized lenses will run around $36 (incl shipping and handling.  State tax may apply).  You can either replace them yourselves, or go to any Sun Glass Hut location and they will put the new lenses on your glasses free of charge.
