O.k., so i have a pair of JT goggles (just the basic kind-nothing special) and i've used em a few times and have, of course been hit right on the lens part of them. so i'm cleaning them off like they said to in the manual, and i'm noticing that some of the places were the paint either hit or splattered, that it looks like it's not coming off, but then a little while later, they looked o.k. This morning i had another look at them, and it looks likewhere the paintsplattered on it, it stained the lens (i.e.-when i tilt it up to the light i can still see where the paint hit, but it cannot be washed or wiped off). What is going on?? is this bad?? i read that paint can weaken the lense and was just wondering....

how long did it take for you to clean them? You should always clean them as soon as you can as this can happen.

I have the lower end JT goggles as well and i had a similar problem. the way to fix it is take a klenex and buff the lens. I did that and its like new

well just try to look through them and if it doesnt make a difference then just dont mind it but if you still cant see or clean it then just call the factory.
(there shoud be a # on the back of the manual)

well, i'm not a total expert on goggles, but i remember a friend talking about his lenses being stained. the lenses are 2 pieces of plastic sanwiched together (this might be only for thermal lenses, but like i said, i'm no expert). so when you see a paint stain occuring, the reason you cant get the paint off of them is because the paint has soaked between the 2 layers of lenses. well, i noticed this happening on my JT lenses as well about a week ago after i came back from paintballing. i put them in the dishwasher for about... 5-10 minutes... something like that... i forgot, my mom did it for me. well... that seemed to work.

i heard Dawn dishsoap works wonders on most paintball products.

i hope this helps!

The goggles have only a one-piece lens (i took em out to try and clean it better). It's also supposedly has an "anti-fog" polycarbonate (although i guess all paintball lenses are polycarb.?)lense, so the manual lists all sorts of stuff youre not supposed to use to clean it. Although i did not notice just regular soaps and stuff- sounds to me more like stuff that would cause the lense to crack(windex,gasoline,etc.), so maybe i'll try some soap on it- although i don't know if i'll be sticking it in a dishwasher anytime soon <_<
Also, someone else here said i could buff it with a kleenex.hmmmm... maybe i'll try something like that too.
Any further help/comments on this still wanted.

well if you read your manual you'll also notic that it says to replace your lens if you get hit there even if it does not show any cracks.

I have never tried the dishwasher thing seems like it would make the lense weaker. I have played with a pair of goggles that had taken repeat hits to the lense and they cracked in two places when I took a head shot in a game. The owners manual says not to use anything but water to clean the lense of your goggles. Try placing the goggles in a bucket of water and letting them soak for awhile and see if that helps. I also don't recomend using a cleaner that has acid like dish soap.

Your supposed to get a new lens if you get hit in the lens. I'd get e thermal if i were you. And a thermal is the one witht the two plastic sandwiched pieces. A regular lens is only one piece of plastic

My brothers JT lenses did the same thing, he replaced them. I have never had this problem but I don't think it is a safety hazard.

I would never clean a lens with gasoline... besides it just being dumb it would probably end up making you high. You should just use warm water to clean them with... warm water and a soft towel. My profiler lense took a hit but the guy was so far away I didn't bother changing them... it was on the right side and I couldn't even feel the hit.. I just saw it. I would recommend you get thermal lenses though because antifog lenses are junk.

The only single pane lens I swear by is VForce.

I would try this. Take a Kleanex and wipe the lense with it. What are you using to clean the mask with? DON'T use Windex, this WILL ruin certin lenses. Use a paintball spicific lense cleaner. If your still having problems after that I would use the Goo Gone brand cleaner on it. This should clean up the remaining paintball film. Hope this helps, peace

its o.k. to use them there still safe, the ball just left a mark on the lens, remember a ball is going 200+ FPs so it will leave a mark, but if the lens is cracked or you took alot of balls around the same area then you should get a new lens

DON'T USE DISHWASHER SOAP ON YOUR LENSES!!!! I heard on the forums a few months ago that it weakens the plastic. I'm pretty sure it should say in the manual not to do it.
