For best results, you need to get the lens fully refinished, including a compounding step, prior to applying the coating. It's not going to fill/hide sanding sins like minwax. But it does leave a nice flat natural look, without streaks of a thick coating or pattern of a spray coating. It may not have the same gloss of some other coatings, but the bottom line is that it looks good, period. If it proves to be a "permanent" coating.... still looks great after a year and continues to hold up pretty decent for another year or more, we have a winnner.
