Hi people. I got the Oculus Rift a couple of weeks ago, and I've been using them with my glasses (everything looks blurry without them). Yesterday I was cleaning the lenses and noticed they have very noticeable scratches, and I'm sure they were made by the glasses. The Rift is supposed to work fine with glasses, and mines are quite small, so I didn't expect the lenses to be so fragile, and to get scratched so easely. The manual doesn't even mention to use some kind of protective cover for glasses. I'm a bit disappointed, and really angry, because the headset got ruined in less than a month, and it's not a cheap peace of hardware. But anyway, the damage is done, and I need help finding a way to fix it, if possible.
I did some research on internet, and these are my current options. Not all of them are factible tho.
1) Returning the Rift for repairs. This is definitely not an option. I live in Argentina, got the product with international shipment. I absolutely cannot return it for repairs, let alone paying for them.
2) Polywatch polisher. This seems to be the best option. I've read a few users posts who said this thing completely removed the scratches, although a few said it didn't work at all. I may be able to get one of these on Amazon, but it's quite difficult to get stuff from other countries here.
3) Meguiars Plastix, a plastic cleaner for car headlights. I've seen a video of a guy claiming that this product removed the scratches on his Oculus. However, in the video I can see that even tho the scratches disappeared, the affected area became really blurry. To be honest, it looks worse than before. Here's the link of the video.
4) White Toothpaste. I've read in one of those DIY pages that you can (try to) fix the Rift scratches with white toothpaste. This seems to be the less effective option, but the most affordable. I'm kinda afraid to try it tho, toothpaste contains alcohol, and I as far as I know, alcohol leaves very noticeable smudges on the lenses surface. Did anyone tried it?
And that's all I have for now. If anyone has a better solution, I'd like to hear it. Also if you used any of these fixes and got good results, I would appreciate if you could share them here.
