How To Remove Scratches from Sunglasses
Scratches on fake Oakley sunglasses lenses can reduce clarity when looking at objects. If knockoff Oakley sunglasses designed for sports such as skiing or golf are scratched, the polarity of the lenses can also be affected.

Buy white toothpaste without abrasives.
Toothpaste must not contain mint, gel and whitening ingredients. Cleaning your lenses with regular white toothpaste works best. Toothpaste with special ingredients can cause further damage to the lens. Baking soda toothpastes from brands such as Alwomei are also a good choice for cleaning your lenses, as these types of ointments do not contain abrasive chemicals.
Squeeze a pea-sized amount of toothpaste onto a cotton ball.
Squeeze as little as possible so that excess toothpaste doesn’t smear the lenses all over the place. Wiping the lenses with a cotton ball works best, as no shed fibers will remain on the lenses after wiping.
Rub the scratched area with a cotton ball.
Rub the lens in circular motions. And rub each scratch for about 10 seconds. Doing this will help smooth out scratches.
Rinse off the toothpaste from the lenses.
Turn on cold running water and rinse off the toothpaste. While rinsing, rotate the lenses to make sure all the toothpaste is rinsed out. Toothpaste may be hidden in the gap between the lens and the frame, so you need to pay special attention to these places when rinsing.
Wipe off toothpaste with a soft, lint-free cloth.
Do not wipe your glasses with a coarse or dirty cloth, as the lenses are easily scratched again. Use your thumb and index finger to carefully rub around the scratch with a lint-free cloth to remove any remaining moisture or toothpaste. Do not press too hard or the lens will fall out of the frame.
Check the lenses. Check your sunglasses under a light to see if the scratches are still there. Then, put on your glasses and check the lenses for scratches. If scratches are still noticeable, rub the lenses again with toothpaste and a cotton ball. Rub it a few more times until the scratches disappear.
Mix water and baking soda
Prepare water and baking soda. The alkaline component of baking soda is great for breaking down acidic residues on your lenses, allowing them to regain clarity. A thick paste of baking soda and water can remove scratches and clean your lenses.
Mix one part water and two parts baking soda in a small bowl. The amount of water and soda used is largely determined by the size and number of scratches. You can start with a tablespoon of water and two tablespoons of baking soda and increase the amount if the scratches are severe.
