    Good afternoon!

    I have a pair of Caveat's with fire iridium lenses. Recently, I discovered a minor scrape I'd like to fix if possible. I read about toothpaste as one fix and baking soda or another. Are either of these appropriate for these senses and has anyone tried this? Thanks!!

    No there is no way to fix besides buying a new lens

    Your lenses are 'trashed'. Using either of the above 'treatments' will obliterate any visual acuity to your already damaged lenses
    Two options, see if Oaklwy have a spare set still, look out on eBay or get a custom cut done by a variety a amazing cutters.....ok, three options.

    I have tried it on old lenses in the past. Worth a try whatever result you get :)

    The iridium coating is only 3 microns thick, and any scratch is going to be deeper than that.
    Sorry 'bout your luck.
