    The other week I noticed my eye glasses had dried hard water stains on
    them. This seems to have accumulated over time. My lenses are glass
    lenses (not plastic). I thought that the lens cleaning solution you
    get at the optical stores would do the job - that did not help. Also
    tried vinegar, but no success. Is there any to get rid of these dried
    stains. If not, the option is new lenses. Appreciate any advice.

    If they are hard water deposits, then soaking them in vinegar would
    absolutely take them off. If you've done that, and they haven't gone
    away, then what you may be looking at is etching. Basically, very
    fine scratches that accumulate over time, and give a fogged
