Can LCD screen scratches be repaired?

Just bought a used camera scratched LCD screen... I got it cheap so its no big deal but is there any way to fix this or at least make them less noticeable?

One thing that can fix minor scratches in clear acrylic is Pledge Future Floor polish. Don't laugh, it really is a great thing for this. Just brush it on, and dab off the excess with a few Q-Tips. Before you do that, mount it with the screen flat and level, and put it in a completely dust free area. Let it dry overnight. If you don't like it, remove it with Windex.

I use this with model airplane canopies all the time, and they are basically the same plastics.

I agree with this as I've used it on plastic model canopies too (actually I use it as a clear-coat over the entire model too as a seal for the water based acrylic paint I use).

I doubt the screen is toughened glass as it scratched but if it was glass it would probably fill the scratches in glass too.
