    nail polish remover on a cloth. beware with plastic frames....if its a harsh enough remover it'll eat at the coating.

    Um, if they are eye glasses, you should take them out of the frame by unscrewing it at the temple. Try using acetone.

    scrapping of any form is not recommended.....depending on what type of paint it is solvent in the way to go.

    i was gonna suggest 'goof off'
    it's gotten paint off suede for me before.
    (with a paper towel)
    i think i got it at wal-mart.

    i was also gonna say nail polish remover.
    that stuff is a good solvent without being real harsh.

    My fathers an eye doc. He uses acetone alot to clean lenses, that and 100% alcohol. I know this one girl who dropped her glasses in etch bath in my printmaking class, she said there are tiny little pits in the lenses now. haha
