Glasses causing irritation

I purchased a few pairs of glasses online about 6 months ago. Also, I sweat a lot. And the sweat seems to be corroding the arms of the glasses and causing some irritation where the arms contact my face. Is there something I can coat glasses with to prevent this?

Why does wearing my glasses wash out colors?

I just got my first pair of glasses (very small power, .5) because I was annoyed by everything being slightly blurry. I enjoy them for the most part, but since I can get by just fine without them I haven't figured out when I want to wear them and when I haven't - which I suppose is another question). However, I am bothered by the fact that when I put them on, all the colors I'm seeing seem to wash out very slightly. I suppose it's not that big of a deal, but once again, because I can for the most part see without them, many times it's rather off putting to wear them. Any opinions? (Opinions on how to decide when to wear them also welcome)

Do pinhole glasses work?

I found this pinhole glasses sold at the local pharmacy, and feel intrigued by its claim to help me see better and improve my vision overtime (I'm short-sighted). My skeptic alarm rang with warnings (if it's too good to be true, it usually is, etc.), but a quick google-fu turned up nothing substantial to refute such claims. So, does anybody have any experience or anecdotes to share in regards of such product ?

Removing superglue from a glasses lens?

Long story short, my boyfriend managed to get superglue on one of the lenses of his glasses and it had time to set overnight, and has had no success getting it off with rubbing alcohol or peroxide. He's wary of trying to scrape it off so as not to damage the lens and would like to avoid having to replace the glasses since his prescription is pretty expensive. The frames are plastic so I don't think it'd be much of a problem to have the glasses soak in a solution. Do you guys have any suggestions for a safe-as-possible way to remove the glue without damaging the lens too much, or at least a way to loosen it so that it doesn't involve too much scraping? (Would Goo Gone work on superglue that's on glass?) Or is he pretty much screwed and will need the lens replaced?
