Do headlights ever cloud up over years?

    Trying to do a bit of research on the headlights. Do they cloud up and turn opaque like so many headlights on the road? I've twice resurfaced my Toyota headlights and they look okay for a while. But then go back to translucent.

    Curious how others prevent degradation.

    Thanks!

    Mine are clear at 3.5 years on my 2013 S85, but FWIW I had the glass coated with OptiGlass.

    Are the headlight boxes glass or plastic? Didn't know if that makes a difference with a coat like optiglass.
