Solution other than vasaline fix small scratch on Retina Diplay

I have a small scratch on my display. On my matte displays I have been able to mask it by rubbing Vaseline over the scratch. I tried this on my retina but it leaves a sheen where I placed is. I was wondering if anyone had any other ideas about a kind of material to use. Would Dipslex work?

Sadly, you'll need to live with the scratches as the display has a coating that will be damaged. Your only option here is to replace the display.

Any idea what the coating is made of?


Sorry no, we had someone damage one with a solvent (trying to clean it).

Try an auto store. They make compounds for windshield and headlight scratches. One of those might work...

Try stopping in and asking at an autoglass repair shop (the guys in the little red trucks) they may be able to fill the scratch and seal it with a UV reacting compound.
