Default goggle lens buffing

Hi everyone,

The other day, my goggles had some ice inside of them, and i made a mistake by trying to chip off the ice with my shirt... so i managed to scratch the lens and for some reason they look like they are buffed out.

Now I cant see out of them clearly, and I was wondering if there is anyway to get rid of the buffing on the inside of the lens? I just want to be able to see out of them clearly again. Thanks

dont know about goggle lenses but when i scratch my dragon sunglasses i use a lil meguiars plastic x polish and it does the trick you can pick this up at any auto parts store and sometimes walmarts.

basically, I messed up my anti-fogging coating (i think) on the inside of my Oakleys,

And I want to know if there is anything that I can do about it to fix it?

Thanks

On a serious note, if you've scratched the inside of the lens, you technically need to replace it. Buffing, polishing or whatever to remove the scratches justs screws up the anti-fog layer on the lens even more even though they may look clean.
