Some examples of lens replacements we have done on various brands.Example #1 (Prada Sport)
This pair of Prada Sunglasses came to us with 2 distinct scratches. The 1st scratch was a 1/4 inch line and the 2nd was a 1/16th inch dot scratch. The lenses where brought back to marvelous condition. The lab performed a scratch repair and repaired the area in both places. The lab saved this customer a lot of money to replace this frame as shield lenses cannot be replaced. The entire frame would have had to be replaced.
Example #2 (Vogue)
The customer dropped his Vogue Eyeglasses on the concrete steps. The concrete left tiny pebble marks on his progressive lenses that cost him about $500. This would have been a total loss for the customer had our lab not filled and buffed the lenses to take out the scratches to near perfection.
Example #3 (Armani)
Overtime surface scratches can develop even if you have scratch resistant coating applied to your lens. The buffing process works in some cases to remove the scratches or at least to make them appear much lighter and invisible. In this example, this pair of Armani exchange eyeglasses contained such a problem. You look at the results and judge.
