I too would contact the manufacturer and see what they say is safe to take the spray paint off. Surely they have run into someone else that has done something like this to their glasses - but then again, maybe not.

Oh hell no. If I was Thomas, I would just quit wearing the damn thangs. He is not capable of wearing them and he needs to face up to that sad, sad fact.

I'm beginning to wonder if your iPhone troubles really aren't user error.

I'm thinking the standard answer for anything WE asks is to let someone else do it.

Oakley lenses are made of polycarbonate, which does not resist chemicals very well. Acetone and alcohol can cause damage to these lenses. Particularly the edges are raw material and not coated. A good optician will have a solvent that is safe to use on polycarbonate lenses. They will probably clean them for you for free. It could be the difference between an easy fix and ruined lenses. For broken frames, stay away from super glue too. It won't work and doesn't come off lenses
