If you ever catch on fire, try to avoid looking in a mirror, because I bet that will really throw you into a panic. -Jack Handey

Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

Do you know of a way to repair a scratch on a pair of glasses? Mine are scratched, and it doesn't bother me too much, but it is noticeable.

- Glasses

A: Dear Glasses,
You know, people make something called "stratch-b-gone" if you want to purchase it. It's $10 but promises to remove scratches in minutes. (unbelievable!) You can order it at http://www.yoosave.com/sjbego.shtml.
You could also try a hobby store and see if they have polishes that remove scratches and restores transparency.
Something that might help in the meantime are Lens Cleaning Tissues or Lens Cleaning Spray (both made by Bausch & Lomb); they remove dirt, etc., and might help clean it up a bit.
