Help with glasses lenses

Hi,

I recently got a pair of glasses off the good ol' internet to use for a cosplay, but they had fake lenses put in with the store's logos on them (probably because the frames were intended to be used as real glasses and the store expected the customer to take it to an optician to replace the lenses).

I tried wiping it off with acetone because it had worked for a previous pair of glasses, but it ended up smearing/fogging up the lens AND didn't even make the ink budge. Is there any way to salvage these lenses, or should I bite the bullet and find a way to make new lenses for them? and if I have to make new lenses, how does one go about making them?

Here are a couple images of the glasses/lens in question.

thank you!

Novus Plastic Polish system works really well for this sort of thing. To get the logo off, you might have to use something like 1000 grit sandpaper (wet it first). This will scratch up the lens, but the plastic polish will bring it back to being transparent.
