Any way to fix a moderate scratch on pink iridium lense??
 
I stupidly scratched my goggles pretty bad and was wondering if there was anything I could do to "fix" them or to make it look less noticeable(other than buy a new lense). It's not a big scratch but it's kinda deep. I did it really stupidly too. I had them on the front of my helmet and forgot they were there and walked/bumped into the frame of a steel door at my local hill chalet. I've forgotten several times how much more thickness I have to adjust for with a helmet and goggles on and everytime I bump into something, it reminds me of how much of a noob I still am. Anyways, would appreciate any tricks that may help.

umm. the lenses are plastic so maybe you could use like meguirs plastx or some other similar product. Its for cars but it will accomplish the same thing. I haven't ever done it so i can't give input towards if it works or not. I dont know how this affects the antifog or the gas layer between the lenses. Just a suggestion.

I have always just bought a new lense. I wear electric eg2's and the lenses have never really been that expensive.

If it doesn't impact your sight in any way, I'd just leave the scratch there. IMO, it'll be difficult to buff out a deep scratch without marring up the rest of the lens.
