    glass or plastic?.. "superglue" reacts with water to the extent if submerged in water after a day or so it goes white and crumbly and flakes off...... worth a try but takes time.

    try soaking them in water..... its probably the only thing you can do, i think anything else will disolve the lenses.

    I would try what has been suggested, but there is unfortuately a strong possibility that the lens has now been irrepairably damaged.
