Help restoring vintage 50's AO demi-amber frames!

Postby bauhaus82 on Sat Nov 16, 2013 10:07 am

Hi! I have a 1950's American Optical C25-51 demi-amber sunglasses. However, there happens to be clouding/or salt bleaching that's going on the nose area due to perspiration over the decades, any way to restore these? And is there also a way to restore bite marks at the tip of the temple?

Thanks for the post. Sadly, the lenses and temple socks can't be restored, they would need to be replaced. I would first contact AO and see if they can do this. Call them at 1-800-777-1173. Good Luck.
