I’m getting a bunch of fine scratches on my glasses. Not really visible unless I’m looking toward light, then they make it look a little cloudy. The prescription and frames are still good. I saw some goop on a web site that claims you can apply a coat to the lens and it fills in all the scratches. Anyone have any experience with this?

Never tried the goop. I just buy lots of those cheap Dean Edell glasses, and have plenty of spares both at home and work. They get scratched, they get lost, I replace them. It's a mindset thing, glasses should be considered an expendable item, like light bulbs.
"Looking toward the light"?
Yer older than I thought. (No wonder you need glasses.)

D-mix might work for filling in those scratches.

For plastic lenses, I've polished out scratches with pepsodent.
I've heard that the scratches can sometimes be polished out. Take them to your optometrist and ask.
I sprang for a slightly more costly lens material that's guaranteed not to scratch for 2 years.

My optician said the goop doesn't work and will ruin the lenses.
Often it is just the coating that is scratched. On some lenses he coating can be stripped off and reapplied.
I took my glasses to the store where I bought them. They cleaned and did something that filled in many of the scratches.I actually went there to get a new pair because of the scratches, bought a new pair for home and use the old glasses for work.
My eye doctor once told me that scratch resistant lens actually scratched more because its actually the coating that is being eroded...go figure.Broke me of using my finger as a windshield wiper. Drywall dust is the worst..also cheap tissuses.
I think I always clean them with a good spray of windex and a wipe with a clean well used dish towel, or a clean t-shirt. Sometimes I wash them with shaving cream and warm water. I have worn glasses long enough to know that kleenex is not a suitable cleaner.
