Scratch-PROOF not just resistant glasses lenses
Can someone out there PLEASE invent plastic lenses for eyeglasses that are scratch-PROOF and not just scratch-resistant?? I know that such a thing does not exist today. Why not?? I don't know anything about plastics...
I know that glass is harder to scratch, but it still gets scratches.
I would happily pay $1000 for scratch-resistant lenses, and I am lower-middle class!!!
By scratch-proof, I mean I just want lenses that won't get all scratched up when I dry them with coarse paper towels or my shirt fabric (which is not 100% cotton).
If anyone's kid is looking for a science project maybe he or she can use this as a starting point. I don't see adults doing anything like this anytime soon. Grrr. On a recent airplane ride, I actually sat next to an employee of an eyeglass company (he was on his way to a convention for his company) and I asked him to tell his research and development department to do this. He changed the subject. LOL
Another thing I want someone to invent is dish soap that can clean plastic (like tupperware or rubbermaid) as easily as it cleans glass or porcelain.
