Random bit of info on this subject matter . I made my own lens protection shields from an unused screen shield from my S4 . I just cut them out to the size of the lens then applied . A very useful tip on installing these items . Use tweezers , You might think its ok enough to use the tips of your fingers but I got me some fat finger tips LOL . After messing up a few installs I used tweezers and my OCD gave it the green light afterwards LOL . Good luck

Just so everyone is aware, if your lens is "scratched" most likely it's just the oleophobic coating and not the actual lens. While it's not excusable, there is a solution. My lens was really bad and I was able to remove the rest of the coating using a q-tip and some rubbing alcohol. It comes off surprisingly easy and I haven't noticed any negative effects from the lacking coating. After that, I applied the lens protectors included in the Nilkin tempered glass screen protector that I got from Amazon and I haven't had any issues since.
