    I bought a pair of glasses several years ago but now the Anti Reflective coating is starting to peel off. This is creating streaks down the middle of both of my lens and looks like my glasses has been placed on a table and scratched violently. These 'scratches' are only found on the front side of my lens. I think this happened because I use to wash my glasses with soap and warm water during my shower.

    I want to remove the remaining Anti Reflective coating to get rid of these 'scratches' on my lens. I've been doing some research and it seems that the two solutions I have is to use Armor Etch (http://www.wisebread.com/armor-etch-can-be-a-cheap-fix-for-your-scratched-eyeglasses) or to bring it to a professional for $50 where they cannot guarantee its success.

    I am wondering if anyone has any experience with Armor Etch, and what is the success rate of the product. In addition, what sort of procedure would a professional do? Would they use a product similar to Armor Etch?
